Eminem made a stop by the ESPN booth to visit with announcers Kirk Herbstreit and Brent Musburger Saturday night during the Notre Dame-Michigan game and it was as awkward as you could imagine.
The rapper's new song "Berzerk" was announced as the feature song for ESPN's Saturday Night Football series yesterday, and after a preview of his video played at halftime, Eminem joined Musburger and Herbstreit for a question and answer session. Though judging by the look on his face when Musburger introduced him -- and Herbstreit's laughter -- it's debatable whether or not Eminem was ready.

After the video was played, Musburger's question about Rick Rubin woke up from his stupor (slumber? oblivion?), and was even forced to stay in the booth for another segment after a commercial break could have mercifully cut it short.
And yes, if you're wondering, Musburger, famous for his on-air references to point spreads, did ask Eminem about gambling. Give the video above a look, and we dare you not to only watch it just once.
