For Chicago sports reporter Susannah Collins, it was an unfortunate slip of the tongue. During a live televised report outside the Chicago Blackhawks locker room, Collins said of the team: "Despite the fact that they've had a tremendous amount of sex in the regular season."

That was how she started a sentence about the team's progress during a report for Comcast SportsNet Chicago. She very quickly corrected her flub -- she meant to say "success" -- but the video went viral. Collins was fired Thursday, though CSN Chicago's parent company, Comcast, claimed that it was unrelated to her TV blooper.
