Hot Mic! Hot Mic!-Edited

I just had one of the best laughs I’ve had in a while. Baseball Ross tuned in on MiLB.tv to watch the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs versus the Rochester Red Wings.  The logos were on the screen but no announcement of a delay or anything.

So Ross could hear talking but not very loudly, afraid that there was a problem with the computer he asks me to check with the iPad since I have my nice Bose earphones paired to it. I tune into the game….

The game was in a delay, but the announcers didn’t know their mics were still on! As people do when they have time off at work-they we’re goofing around and let’s just say the language could be “colorful”.

I immediately looked up then twittered the team: 

They didn’t notice right away…but then…

“Uh guys, someone just tweeted that they can hear us in here!”

(Everything went silent)

“I think they tuned in to watch the game on MiLB.tv and the mics are on.”

There was some murmuring about whether they were on or not so I twittered:


(Basically a cleaned-up version of the earlier conversation.)

Next thing you hear is that they are scrambling to find the “hot” mic.

They check each mic…with “hello”

I twittered back “hello.”

After a few more minutes of scrambling, it went silent.

Best laugh I’ve had in a long time! 

So when we got the alert that the game was about to start after the rain delay we tuned back in, what do you know—-THE MICS WERE OPEN AGAIN!

Being the benevolent soul I am, I tweet to them to let them know and then…

“Hi Betsy! Hi Baseball Betsy! She’s back, guess she’s the only one listening to us!”

What a hoot!  Best.NightEver!
