LA Weatherman Jim Castillo: A Freudian Slip On Live TV?

Jim Castillo, LA weathermanMost of us have tripped over our words at work. After all, it's just habit that made you say "I love you" at the end of a client call, isn't it? And it was an easy mistake to say "power panties" when you meant "power point," right?

Well, at least it wasn't caught on camera. Jim Castillo, the award-winning weatherman at local Los Angeles TV station KTLA, didn't have such luck, when he described his impression of Julie Weiss, the woman who next week will run her 52nd marathon in as many weeks. Was he really that struck by her "tennies" (tennis shoes)? Watch the clip below:

Hello, please get my story correct, before you post.
Here is what I posted on Facebook and Twitter right after Julie Weiss was on our Sunday Evening Edition. I said Tennies and many people know that I said Tennies ( as in Tennis Shoes). It may have sounded like the other, but it was not. That part of you that thinks I said Tennies is 100% correct. Julie and her husband and I were just talking about her cool Tennies in the makeup room, soon after, I said Tennies on the air and then clarified that Tennies means tennis shoes.
On my Facebook page, Jim Castillo KTLA 5 Meteorologist March 10 near Los Angeles, I said nice Tennies to the awesome marathon runner Julie Weiss (as in Tennis Shoes) on air... Top of the @KTLA Evening Edition @ 8 p.m. ... I know what it sounded like:((( opps LOL I will never say nice Tennies on air again;-) Here's a pic of her and us:))) with her rockin' running shoeswww.marathongoddess.com and her husband are Rock Stars!!!
I'm so happy that all of this silly, sometimes mean postings, is calling more attention to a very important cause. Pancreatic Cancer.
Have a great week!

this thing about children potentially hearing tities out of this is a non point, children often hear more than that coming out of a relatives mouth or some 1 at schools or in public, you cannot shelter your children from the world
