Nice find by our friends at La Salle's Sports Talk Philadelphia (@sportstalkphila), who noticed this unfortunate mistake by a lowly ESPN social media editor.
After Ramon Galloway threw down a vicious dunk last night, cameras spanned the arena to find his father, who, at least according to ESPN's YouTube page, didn't appear to be paying attention or to notice the ruckus his son had caused. One problem: Ramon Galloway's father is blind.
Now, this is hardly another "Chink in the Armor" for ESPN, because, really, we can't expect a 20-something staffer to know the handicaps of every Division 1 athlete's parents. But, since we're the Internet, and calling out the sports giant's mistakes is what we do… well, you get it. Plus, it's an awkward gaff which reminds us – a bit – of when the Phillies broadcast passed off a random black guy as John Mayberry Jr.'s proud papa.
