It’s tiresome to monitor ESPN blowhard and domestic violence apologist Stephen A. Smith’s daily acts of polluting the Worldwide Leader’s airwaves with his Cro-Magnon attitudes, but here we are. While inexplicably serving on SportsCenter duty last night, SAS cracked wise on Norway’s gorgeous free kick goal yesterday by explaining that German players were unable to stop Maren Mjelde’s strike because “they might not have wanted to mess their hair up.”

Tim Legler, also on set, wasn’t much better with his “those young ladies didn’t want to catch one in the grill.” ESPN’s dedication to women, everybody!
