Sad news out of the Windy City after Chicago Blackhawks reporter Susannah Collins gave the world one of the best Freudian Slips of all-time, she finds herself on the unemployment line. Collins was reporting prior to the start of the Blackhawks first Stanley Cup Playoff game and said that the team had a “tremendous amount of sex during the regular season.” What she meant to say was ‘success,’ which she did correct herself with. It seemed rather harmless, but hysterical.
According to the Chicago Tribune, CSN Chicago announced on Friday they have parted ways with Collins, but did cite that it had nothing to do with her on-air flub. Which we find somewhat hard to believe.
It is highly possible that it wasn’t directly tied to Wednesday incident only, as it appears that her remark brought publicity to her previous work, which was a series called “Sports Nutz.” She participated on this show back in 2009 and 2010. The show used sexual language as a regular gag with its sports reporting.

It is a bit ridiculous that she is being let go, and since CSN hasn’t provided any information as to why, we are going to assume that it had to do with the othernight and her past work.
This firing probably will be a good thing for Collins, as she is now a nationally known product due to her mistake which went viral. Many reporters have had similar flubs like hers, and another sports network will likely take her on. If Jen Sterger can get work on a national sports station, this girl can.
Now, if we can only get Hawk Harrelson off the air. . .
