As Twitchy reported, Brit Hume and other Twitter users hilariously mocked retiring Dan Dierdorf’s befuddled announcing during the Colts-Patriots game on Saturday. The snicker-fest didn’t end there, however. Enter Greg Gumbel’s farewell speech to Dierdorf:
I liked Dan Dierdorf as an analyst. But if I laughed any harder after that awkward horse conversation with Gumbel, I would have needed CPR.

Still trying to wrap my head around the "If there was a horse and a sunset, you'd be riding into it" goodbye speech Gumbel gave Dierdorf

Gumbel to Dierdorf: "if there were a horse here,you'd be riding off into the sunset." Dierdorf: "It would have to be a Clydesdale."

I told you Dierdorf would ruin Gumbel's goodbye by opening his mouth.

Giggles, yet also shudders. Many found the speech and the bromance disturbing.

Gumbel's little send-off speech for Dierdorf made me extremely uncomfortable. "If there was a horse riding into the sunset, you'd be on it"

Only thing worst than the outcome of this game is the endless Dierdorf love-fest by Greg Gumbel #vomit

How about Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf get a room

I want Dan Dierdorf to pull a drunk Joe Namath and ask Greg Gumbel if he can kiss him

This account tweets what I'm thinking often.“@NotKennyRogers: If Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf make out right now, I'm turning the channel.”

Coulda swore Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf were about to make out there.

Gumbel should just give Dierdorf a big kiss and get it over with. Kinda getting uncomfortable in the booth. #DierdorfRetirement

As Gumbel praised Dierdorf, he scooted closer and closer. As Dierdorf gives thanks, Greg leans in for the kiss. Things get weird for the end
