were the comments necessary? no. were they offensive? no. trying to fill in dead air in a distance race is near impossible for a commentator. sit through a season of football and you will have a notebook filled of things more offensive said by broadcasters then will ever be said about Allie O. Just get over it.
and in the words of Brent Musberger ......."SECOND AND NINE!"
Is saying on a national broadcast that an adult looks like they just finished playing with barbies offensive? I dunno..it's clearly rude, demeaning, and unprofessional.
