They made an ass out of him.
News station KRDO in Colorado Springs used a graphic to identify the position of the Denver Broncos’ Jake Butt as “tight butt.”
They got the “tight” part right ― he’s a rookie tight end. And of course they mistakenly got the “butt” from the player’s noteworthy last name. The two words together form a compliment, if you appreciate that sort of thing.
But they probably don’t belong on television news together, and that’s why we are celebrating this end-all blooper.
Is this a new football position, or are they commenting on his appearance? pic.twitter.com/LiMu1PE7cU

KRDO sports director Rob Namnoum graciously accepted that the station would be the butt of jokes.
