While Tampa TV station WTVT interviewed Buccaneers offensive lineman Donald Penn in the locker room on Sunday, the cameraman and the producer failed to notice what they were capturing in the background: Another Bucs player undressing.
The player was shown only from the waist down, so we couldn’t see his face, but we could see everything below the belt. Now WTVT is apologizing for giving the home viewers a glimpse of full-frontal Buccaneer.
“Earlier in the Bucs’ post game there was an inadvertent shot and we apologize for that,” the station said in a newscast afterward, via TampaBay.com.
This isn’t the first time a nude NFL player has been shown on TV, as Visanthe Shiancoe knows all too well. Frankly, given that NFL players are interviewed in the locker room after every game, it’s surprising it doesn’t happen more often.
