Shiancoe Gets Attention after Unexpected TV Exposure

From: Pioneer Press

Visanthe Shiancoe’s unexpected exposure on television in the locker room after Sunday’s game in Detroit has earned him unending ribbing from his teammates, mild personal embarrassment and countless text messages — most of them, no doubt, not suitable for public consumption. “It can be embarrassing because the whole world sees the real you, should I say,” said Shiancoe, who was shown briefly and inadvertently on TV partially nude.

“My teammates right after the game showed me. Within the hour, I knew about everything. I got a lot of calls and texts. I’m not hearing the end of it here in the locker room. “I’m trying to have a little sense of humor about it, but there’s a serious side of it, too, because with the kids. You don’t want any kids seeing that.” Fox network officials apologized publicly and to Shiancoe, who also received a box full of shirts and hats from the network.”I guess,” Shiancoe said, “to cover up.” Right tackle Artis Hicks laughed when he found out about the situation. “If it would have been on Showtime, it would have been all good,” Hicks said
