Mark Connolly, a host for the CBC’s Olympics coverage, was hoping to keep himself out of hot water with his wife on Wednesday when he gave her a shout-out for Valentine’s Day.
As he introduced men’s doubles luge to viewers, Connolly said, “What could be more romantic than the Italian team on St. Valentine’s Day? Shout-out to my wife, who I did not send chocolates to, but this counts for more than that, because I mentioned you on national television.”
But does it?
Connolly really wanted to bring his point home, tweeting about his acknowledgement, tagging wife Alyson in the process:

And apparently Mrs. Connolly was OK with it – though she made sure to drop in a little hint that she wouldn’t mind some flowers:

Hopefully it’s not too late to get something delivered…Mark’s Twitter bio says he also hosts morning radio in Edmonton – getting himself relegated to the doghouse when he returns is a really cold proposition.
