Note to future broadcasters … an on-air tribute to a dead pet is the WORST time to get fired up over a crazy dunk!!!
Want proof? Check out this clip from a high school basketball team in Minnesota on Nov. 30 (captured by Ross Homan) when one announcer reveals that his dog recently died after being run over by a car.
While making the emotional announcement during a “Gone But Not Forgotten” moment, his co-announcer gets FIRED UP about an aggressive slam dunk happening in real time on the court … and the exchange is SUPER AWKWARD.
Announcer 1: “Our sweet Lucy, at the age of 12 she was run over in our driveway …”
Announcer 2: “LIKE THAT?!!! Was she run over like that?!!”
Thankfully, there was a time out in the game that gave everyone a chance to calm down and reset … and later on, Announcer 2 offered his condolences to his broadcasting partner.
