We are truly a worldwide operation at Awful Announcing.  Today we journey to the land down under for a catastrophic local sportscast from Adelaide’s Channel 10.  Sportscaster Nick Butler has a few issues reading his script early on in the telecast as he runs down the final medal count from the Commonwealth Games and the current state of the Aussie cricket team.

But that’s nothing compared to what happens when he discovers that there is a missing page to his script entirely.  After what seems like an eternity of Butler scrambling to find his papers on the air, finally everything is solved when Butler goes to the final golf highlight… and instead discovers a surfing clip.  In Aussie football language, this was the sportscast equivalent of taking a falcon.


Butler said it best, “that was a bit of a nightmare.”
