Who says announcers never work without a net?


During last night's Boston Red Sox-Tampa Bay Rays game, Sun Sports announcers DeWayne Staats and Brian Anderson lost a plastic bottle that they thought had gone overboard. However, they found it had stayed on the lip of their broadcast booth and had not fallen into the Tropicana Field crowd. 

So an enterprising Anderson found a fishing net and managed to retrieve it. The results are shown above. The lesson here is that local announcers never work without a net. You never know when you're going to need one.
