Nick Castellanos interrupts another dark broadcast moment
Cincinnati Reds star Nick Castellanos appears to be figuring out ways to break television broadcast moments.
You may remember the moment when former Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman tried to apologize for his comments broadcast over a hot microphone. His apology was interrupted by Castellanos, who blew up a home run.
Brennaman’s apology quickly became a meme that spread on Twitter. The timing of the Castellanos homerun seemed straight out of a movie.
But what if something like that happens again? It did. During a game against the Kansas City Royals last week, Castellanos stepped on the plate and shot another home run. This time, without realizing it, Castellanos interrupted a laudatory speech that was being given on the Bally Sports Kansas City program.
Did you notice something between the two clips? Castellanos managed to interrupt two different moments (for two completely different meanings / reasons) in the same ballpark against the same team.
Of course, nobody can blame Castellanos for these interruptions. The game was going on and he’s not listening to the TV shows. Somehow, however, he has crazy timing.
As a television producer tip, don’t throw up somber moments where Castellanos is to beat or due at any point during that inning.
