Barry Melrose: Secret to Smooth Canadian Skin is "Chickenshit"
ESPN's Barry Melrose may be in a little trouble after saying the secret to his smooth Canadian skin was "chickenshit" while on air.
During ESPN's First Take, host Jay Crawford was giving Barry Melrose a hard time about being in his middle age, but complimented how good he looked. Crawford commented on Melrose's gray hair, and asked him how he fought crow's feet.
"Chickenshit", replied Melrose, "that's what Canadians use." Crawford and co-host Dana Jacobson looked flustered, but couldn't help laughing.
Melrose advised people to leave it on for half an hour, or during a hockey game for best results. Jacobson later apologized for the use of the word on-air.
