NEW YORK (AP) — A quip by Al Roker may have hit too close to home for NBC's "Today" show team.
Roker, Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie and Tamron Hall were wrapping up an interview with members of the U.S. women's rowing team on "Today" Thursday, when the tradition of a winning team throwing their coxswain into the water was discussed.
Lauer mentioned how the tradition in New York is to throw her into the Hudson River.
Quipped Roker: "Which is different than our tradition, which is you throw one of us under the bus, but that's another story."
