"Yellow and blue for Dustin"

That has to be a joke. A funny one at that.

He's funny. I'd actually rather listen to him do the games than Morgan or McCarver. At least he doesn't pretend to know what he's talking about.

Give him a Nobel prize. He is at least as smart as Al Gore.

I see. Since I chose to post what everyone else did, but not to use sarcasm, I'm worth of being a target. Okay. Just learning the rules.

[McCarver-ed]

"You know, the colored lights have something to do with what the pitch was. Yellow is a fastball and blue is a changeup. That's what the lights mean. Also keep in mind the tie goes to the runner."

I'm not targeting you. We all got the joke. We all knew it wasn't for real. Your post that said "it's a put on" inferred that we really thought he was for real, and that he was seriously broadcasting a game. At the very least it insulted our intelligence.

Nobody that I saw used any sarcasm, we were genuinely amused by the video, and got that it was a joke without any cue cards.

By the looks of this thread, I'd guess the current month is December.

Are you people serious?
