We’re big fans of Michael Eaves around here. The University of Kentucky grad is one of SportsCenter‘s best anchors, routinely giving his alma mater love on ESPN’s flagship program and on social media.
That being said, he messed up big time last night. Eaves started the show with a major Game of Thrones spoiler from last night’s episode before it aired on the West Coast.
**SPOILER BELOW. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. DO NOT WATCH THIS CLIP IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE SPOILED. THIS IS THE LAST TIME I’M WARNING YOU.**

D’oh! As you might expect, Eaves took plenty of heat on Twitter:

Hey @espn – it’s 8pm PST and @GameOfThrones @HBO has not aired yet on the West Coast… Good thing one of your broadcasters on sportscenter just dropped a major #spoiler. Thanks for ruining the second to last #GOT episode!
