Of course, sometimes they have too much fun while calling games and can't even talk. This is what happened on Sunday afternoon.
So what set off the laughter? Cows, of course.
Well, last Sunday, in the break prior to coming back to the start of the game, Russ Kenn and I were telling Don and Jerry that we would be showing some scenic's of Vermont for our opening billboards, and the conversation turned to talking about cows for some reason. We started to get silly and were speculating that the cows in the scenics were the same cows that were in the Connecticut scenics, or that they were actually professional cows from Hollywood who travel around the country acting for scenics.This brings up a good debate. Are the hiring practices of scenic cows fair? Or is there some kind of scenic cow monopoly going on that we didn't know about? I promise you, FanHouse reader, that I will not sleep until I have these questions answered.
The laughter started to build, and about 10 seconds before we got back it became uncontrollable. Don was unable to read the billboard copy because he was laughing so hard...Jerry was rolling in his chair with his finger on the "talk-back" button...the button that allows him to talk to the truck without his audio going out on the air.
