Bob Costas Got Pretty Bored Last Night During The Yankees-Sox Game

I’ve always said that being a baseball play-by-play guy would be the hardest job because there is so much down time and dead air that you have to fill with conversation. With 9 innings, 3 hours of slow baseball, you have to consistently come up with topics to talk about.
When games go into extra innings, it gets even worse, especially in April when the games literally mean nothing. Bob Costas had this problem last night. The Yankees-Red Sox game he was calling went 19 innings. 19 long innings of pitchers taking 2 minutes in between pitches.
Bob’s obviously a professional. So what did he do? He read off guinea pig facts from his Snapple cap.

I don’t blame Bob one bit. Baseball can get really boring, and when the games don’t mean anything yet, and there’s no story lines, what else are you going to talk about?
And now for the real reason I wrote this blog, my favorite segment on BC… NSFW Black Dudes talking about Bob Costas:

And I’m pretty sure this dude isn’t black, so I’ll just leave this here.
