Matt Vasgersian Doesn't Know When Funny Time Ends and Sad Time Begins

| | Comments (7)

Via our pal Sooze at the inimitable Babes Love Baseball (she'll be liveglogging the Mets-Marlins tilt for us tomorrow at 1PM, by the by) comes this video snippet of MLB Network's live studio show from last night:


To recap: Brad Hawpe of the Colorado Rockies is getting carted off the field after sustaining a concussion after being hit in the neck with an errant pickoff move and Matt Vasgersian decides that it would be a good time to make hilarious "that black guy looks like Donovan McNabb" jokes. The scariest part about the clip? Billy Ripken is the voice of reason in the studio.

UPDATE: Vasgersian (allegedly) defends himself in the Kissing Suzy Kolber comment section, of all places.

To be fair, this guys' past gig was "BattleBots" with Sean Salisbury. He's probably still mind-tripping from that experience.

Sooze's title of the post over at BLB summed it up perfectly. At least he didn't make a joke about fried chicken.

From my IM with a coworker a few hours ago: "i know. who would ever think billy ripken would be the voice of reason?"

GET OUTTA MY HEAD ICARANE

Vasgersian made similarly insensitive remarks about Ozarks hill folk a couple years ago when doing a Padres-Cards game.

WE DON'T ALL DRIVE EL CAMINOS! THE CAMARO IS COMING BACK!!!

Following the awkward exchange the three enjoyed hearty bowls of Campbell's Chunky, delicately garnished with Mitch Williams Wild Thing Southpaw Salsa.

Whoever thought repeatedly saying "Dude?" would qualify you as the voice of reason?

But really, McNabb probably doesn't mind the publicity. The EMT is the one who's probably the most upset by it.
