CBS sportscaster Verne Lundquist might be in for a little heat after misidentifying members of President Obama’s entourage at today’s Syracuse-Marquette NCAA game. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer had no problem identifying the president’s former body man, Reggie Love, and even said it was “nice” to see the president enjoying some time off with his buddies.

But no, the president’s brother-in-law Craig Robinson was not there.
Oh dear. Verne Lundquist just identified Martin Nesbitt as Craig Robinson.

Oops. Verne Lundquist mistakes Reggie Love or Martin Nesbitt for Craig Robinson

It's OK, Verne Lundquist. I often mistake you for Wendy's founder Dave Thomas

Viewers think Lundquist, 72, is having a rough day all around.

Anyone else think Verne Lundquist is at his Pat Summerall moment? Really struggling today. Getting close to time to hang 'em up.

Oh dear, Verne Lundquist is already struggling. It's going to be a long night. #Elite8

Every time Verne Lundquist + Bill Raftery are shown on CBS basketball broadcasts, I see Statler + Waldorf from the Muppets #MarchMadness

Verne Lundquist looks like a pile of laundry with eyes #EliteEight

Lundquist does have his own cheering section, though.
“@jbehr1128: I really think it is time for Verne Lundquist to retire. Man is becoming senile” blasphemy

Verne Lundquist and Bill Raftery may be my favorite broadcast pair ever. They are so good and seem to genuinely enjoy doing it
