Why is Eric acting like an ass? Because he's an ass. This has been another edition of easy answers to easy questions. I didn't think so at first, I thought it was Eric getting tipsy (at least) while talking to a guy representating a pretty obscure publication. But they spent about 30 seconds on this on SportsCenter, so yeah, publicity stunt. And right before the MLS season starts, with Disney, for the first time, paying MLS and having an interest in increased ratings. What a coincidence!!
