Mental Error Monday – Joe Buck


My high school baseball coach had us run a mile in practice as punishment for every mental mistake we had made in the previous baseball game. He didn’t really punish us for making physical mistakes because those are pretty much inevitable but mental mistakes, like missing a sign or failing to run the bases properly, that could be avoided were not tolerated. So in honor of my high school baseball coach here is a new segment called ‘Mental Error Monday’. In this segment we will talk about a mental error that was made by someone or some team that took place over the weekend in the world of sports. So without further ado, here is this weeks ‘Mental Error Monday’.

After Brooks Koepka won the 115th U.S. Open, there was an awkward moment during the celebration when broadcaster Joe Buck called Koepka’s girlfriend by the wrong name. Buck saw a woman kiss Koepka after he won the U.S. Open and identified the woman as Koepka’s ex-girlfriend Becky Edwards and not the woman who was actually kissing Koepka, his current girlfriend Jena Sims. Whoops. Somewhere there is a Fox Sports researcher who wants to get away.

Even the great ones mess up every now and then to remind us that they are still human just like us. Maybe next time Fox will do a little bit more research in order to avoid an awkward mistake like this. Classic mental error here and for that we just have to say.
