For some reason, ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian has a soft spot for any word that ends in the letter ‘O’ and is spoken in a Maryland accent. Scott Van Pelt, a fellow DMV native, naturally speaks in this tongue and it makes Kurkjian giggle like a school girl on national TV.
It first started on SVP’s old radio show…
Then, SVP had Tim on his solo SportsCenter premiere a couple weeks ago and it happened again…
And tonight, during a somewhat serious baseball segment: Kurkjian lost it when SVP started talking about “KCi & JoJo” and “Hope Solooooo”
Tim Kurkjian and Brick Tamland from Anchorman have become the biggest doppelgängers ever and it’s awesome.
