Poor Subject of Conversation
During the CW11 telecast of the Mets-Marlins game, announcers Keith Hernandez and Kevin Burkhardt spent several minutes discussing the Florida Marlins. Specifically, the “fact” that the Marlins would be unable to compete this year, how they couldn’t hold on to their best players, how they couldn’t have a good team because of their stadium, how losing Miguel Cabrera meant their offense would struggle mightily, etc., etc.
Listening to all this banter on how poor the Marlins were and how their offense stunk, my wife pointed out that the score was Marlins 7, Mets 1.
Yeah, I know it was a spring training split-squad game, but when your team is getting clobbered, it’s not the right time to say the opposition stinks.
