    I don't know; it's might DB'ing, but this is something else...

    Wow, that sucks. That's a broadcaster's nightmare come to life.

    Is that Ohio U? Those anchors sure aren't any good at all either. Their banter is more forced than the dialogue in a kindergarten play.

    That's probably not the first time that guy had problems when he was around women like that.

    This has got to be a joke. There's no way someone could be that much of a moron.

    Oh, wait. This is TV news we're taking about. Never mind.

    I actually saw this one before I saw "boom goes the dynamite".

    I've seen this before as well, but it always makes me grin. You knew by the way he started -- a few stammers, followed by "These bad things just blow in..." -- that it would be like taking a blow torch to the Hindenburg.

    My personal favorite moment is when ol' Lewis does an impromptu shuffle because he can't figure out how to point at the green screen without blocking it. Just priceless.

    You ever stand in front of one of those? It's hard! I mean it!

    Thanks for saying hi, Lewis! :)

    I have, and it is. But I'd certainly do a handful of trial runs before going live with it.

    I guess up there, they just let bad things blow right in onto the set too.

    Poor guy. You just feel awful for him.

    That's painful.
    Whatever he was doing instead of prepping for the broadcast, I hope it was worth it.

    Ray Romano butchering the weather was MUCH better than Boom Goes the Dynamite boy. I seriously couldn't stop laughing as he was trying to figure out the green screen :)
