What Happens When Announcers Get Hiccups On-Air?

Thursday, April 17, 2008

This starts out as a very innocent exchange between Denver Nuggets announcers Chris Marlowe and Scott Hastings. See Marlowe has the hiccups and can't do anything to get rid of them. Hastings awkwardly asks if he can scare him and then somehow thinks squeezing him will do the trick. As a last gasp they turn to the fans behind them for ideas.....

I don't know how Scott Hastings could have made that any awkward. "Squeeze the air out of you"??? That just sounds evil.

With any luck Joe Morgan will get the hiccups and try the "hold your breath" cure for two and a half hours.

In all seriousness, Scott Hastings is beyond awful - and that's not just his Nuggets stuff. His radio show is truly unlistenable.

No wonder the Broncos and Blowtorch of the Rockies fired his ass. He is a clown - and not a funny one, one of those idiot, creepy, drunk clowns that inexplicably continues to find employment.

What to do? Go to whatever bath house Marv Albert recommends.
