On December Sunday mornings, many are hungover and filled up from holiday Christmas parties, or full of NFL game-day food. Letting out a belch or two is a time-honored tradition. The Fox broadcasting team of Sam Rosen and Brady Quinn (Quinn’s seen above) can relate.
While calling the San Diego Chargers-Carolina Panthers game Sunday, it appears either Rosen (who was doing play-by-play) or Quinn (doing color commentary), let out a burp while on the air.
- NBC exec Jon Miller: ‘We have no desire to be the network of soccer’
- Inside The NBA pays tribute to retiring producer Tim Kiely: ‘You’re the best of all time.’
- The American Gladiators Documentary delivers, but not for the reasons you may have hoped for
- Kim Clijsters talks women’s sports’ drive for equality, International Tennis Hall of Fame, and more
The Panthers took it to the Chargers, winning 28-16, so maybe this was a protest burp. The broadcasting crew could have been looking for a more exciting product to call and not the blowout in the Panthers’ favor. Or perhaps this was merely analysis related to Rosen’s previous comment of “How about the year Matthew Stafford’s having?” Maybe that comment deserved a burp.
Either way, it spiced things up for the viewers at home, and definitely made the broadcast relatable. But for the broadcasters, maybe they should lay off the spicy foods and sodas before game time. You never know when gas can be an issue.
