Matt Vasgersian Continues His On-Air Awkwardness

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

I don't know if it's something in his brain or what, but Matt Vasgersian must just forget that he's actually being broadcast to thousands of people at certain times. There was the Ozarks incident, the f-bomb on MLB Network, and now this. Via Bugs & Cranks....

Wow. There are times to try and make jokes, and definitely times not to make them. You can't go from serious/somber voice to lighthearted that fast! Plus that dude looked nothing like Donovan McNabb. Just plain awkward.

Update: Vasgersian has responded via KSK....
“I am an idiot .. Save the racial stuff which is just flat out wrong, almost all of what has been posted on my regrettably horrific timing is spot on .. It was a bad decision made on live tv and i can absolutely understand how that make an announcer sound insensitive. Bad on the spot judgment. Nobody feels worse about it than I do guys.”

It was a poor attempt at humor. It wasn't horribly offensive. I assume he made the joke because of the absurdity of an EMT wearing such a stupid skull cap.

Stay classy Matt Vasgersian!

Matt Vasgersian being on the MLB Network makes me glad that I don't get it. He's in the same swarmy asshole class along with such pricks as Dan Patrick, Keith Olbermann, Cris Collinsworth and 90% of the ESPN roster.

HAHAHAA the real humor in this is the dead silence right after he says that, letting it sink in and surely thinking he's a genius while the other guys are definitely thinking "WTF"

Vasgersian sucks.

He's not terrible, but this definitely was. Vasgersian is clearly not the best part of MLBN - the analysts are - and this type of behavior needs to be curbed. There was also an incident last night where they were doing a phoner with someone named Jason (Werth possibly) and all of a sudden he was gone and Justin Verlander was on the phone. But it was actually an assistant who then needed to hand the phone to Justin. All of this happened live. I'll still take these glitches over "Baseball Tonight" any day.

I just watched Matt Vasgersian apologize for that terirlbe attempt at humor with that joke last night. I agree. I take MLB Net ocer Baseball Tonight every time.

Not the first. Won't be the last. I like the guy. But as long as studio hosts think they are comedians, we'll see more and more of this.
