[VIDEO PICK: Gaffe] Co-host Stuart Scott pulled one of the great gaffes in "SportsCenter" history late Tuesday night when
he introduced Bob Ley for post-game analysis of the USA-Azerbaijan friendly thinking the game on ESPN2 had been played in Azerbaijan. Or at least Ley was

Scott showed off how little he knew about the USA's World Cup preparations by starting off "SportsCenter" right after the game by going to Ley, which will again host ESPN's World Cup coverage:
"Bob Ley has a passport. And we have passports, too. He used his to get to Azerbaijan. He joins us now from there."
Ley, who was, it appeared, in another ESPN studio, corrected
Scott, "The match this evening, guys, was in San Francisco."
