Scott Van Pelt
When it comes to innocently embarrassing phone calls, it doesn’t get much better than ESPN “Sportscenter” anchor Scott Van Pelt's 2006 recording. Like a nervous junior high student, Van Pelt was captured leaving a nervous, rambling, self-loathing voice message for a young woman he met at a bar in Dewey Beach. After telling the girl that she meets all of his criteria, Van Pelt backtracks and says, “As if I really should even have a checklist… If you have four limbs, and you don’t have Bell’s palsy and a clubbed foot, I probably outta be real, like, just signin’ up.” Way to play it cool, Scott. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Rick Wilson/Getty)
