Matt Vasgersian Trashes St. Louis

Tuesday, August 07, 2007

Look, I'm not one to spread rumors, but this seems like it very well could be true. An email came through the AA wires shortly after the end of the Padres-Cards game last night, and read as follows...

Did anyone catch the Padres TV broadcaster Matt Vasgersian' s on air battering of the Cardinals and their fans? It was live on San Diego Cox Channel 4 tonight in the top of the 9th. He told the Cardinal Fans to get in their El Camino's and go back to the ozarks and then he pressed his cough button and told his partner Tony Gwynn he's tired of coming to this hole and getting their ass kicked and he's not coming back next year, it was barely audible but it could be heard.
I've tried just about every avenue I can think of to get the video/audio. San Diego is obviously going to bury it, and MLB had the Cards' feed for the night. If anyone can validate or disprove this rumor please do so in the comments or feel free to email me.

If this is totally off-base I'll be sure to put up a post saying so, but if something like this was said over the airwaves....we need to shed some light on it.

UPDATE #1: A second source has come forward and has given AA the play-by-play. So this dig at STL looks like it's more than likely true. Here is the whole thing via reader VJ....
8-06-07 Ninth inning Greene hits a double down the line and two fans go over wall to get the ball....Here is broadcast I taped it channel4San Diego...First they are called yahoos.......(Matt V.).........As one of the ozarks finest pours himself out of the grandstands.....pause...and by the way the Rams should still be in L.A.......Had it with this place already.....pause....get back in your el camino and drive back to the ozarks...........Then with Baird at bat Matt forgot to hit his cough switch in faint audio you here......Im done with this place...Im so tired of losing here.....Its hotter than shit......We get our asses kicked every time we come here .....Im not coming here next year.
Wow. Expect some huge backlash today.

UPDATE #2: Okay, I've received a third confirmation that this went down. This is no longer a Rumor Mill item.

UPDATE #3: Officially Confirmed and said in jest folks. I'll leave it at that....until I get the audio of course.

FINAL UPDATE:Vasgersian contacted AA and I've posted his response. Thanks for visiting Saint Louis......AA would love to see you stop back by again sometime. Cheers.

The only acurate statistic was actually the one about getting your ass kicked everytime you come to St. Louis. Although that also is an error. The Cards kick your ass in San Diego too! Now excuse me....Im gonna drive my el camino to Rams practice and out those Californian defects!!

Nice to see "the classiest fans in baseball" get so riled up over a second rate announcer trashing their town. Here's a hint: every out-of-town announcer feels that way about 95% of the places they go. You REALLY think anyone likes going to Detroit? Dallas? Seattle? Baltimore?

Bagging on the host town is the easiest schtick in sports. Let it go.

I've relocated to Missouri recently and it's hot as shit, and I can't wait to relocate (and I come from SOUTH of Missouri). But this guy is still a pampered douchebag.

Looks like his broadcasting career is going as well as his acting career (see Wikipedia). But that's okay. I'm sure his agent will get him more video game gigs. I mean, he probably still has to pay for his $1.5 million townhouse that is about as big as my garage.

Actually, now that I think about it, his contempt for the Red States should land him somewhere on ESPN's radar before too soon.

Great call Matt, it's something everyone has known for years. St. Louis is in a valley, of course it's hot!

Anyone who thinks St. Louis is hot, has never been to Miami in the summer for a Marlins game.

Day games should be outlawed, but they play on through.

At least in St. Louis the fans sell out the joint in those blast furnace conditions.

You'll never hear Mike Shannon utter that on the air.

You stay classy, San Diego.

I'm not the biggest Matty V. fan (living in San Diego I have to hear his overdone homerism daily), but I don't take what he said as more than 1. busting on two particular idiots (every city and every team has its share of idiot fans), 2. hating playing the Cardinals, who in recent years have punked the Pads, which he flat out says and 3. calling it like it is -- St. Louis is indeed "hot as shit," especially when you're leaving San Diego's 79 degrees with barely any humidity.

I still have no clue how Joe Morgan keeps his job - he is one of the worst announcers in baseball, including Al Hrabosky. Well, Al is probably #1, then Morgan.

I must say, though, Dusty Baker is about to catch up with both Al and Joe. Remember the comment he made last night -, "They're telling me Pujols has been working a lot on his fielding and he'll probably win a Gold Glove someday!" Luckily, the other guy corrected him and told him he won it last year. Do your homework, Dusty! Why can't they all be Vin Scully or Jack Buck?!?!?!?!?!?!

How did Matt Vasgersian become the voice of all Southern California? When did Barstow (possibly the worst place on earth) become representative of San Diego? Barstow's further from SD than the Ozarks are from St. Louis.

Here's a STL fan who doesn't really care what some clueless no-name says about the city.

But as for the "way to show class" comments: think about the fact that this is a comment section to a blog, and this guy made his remark on television, as a supposed professional, representing his team and city. Not at all the same. Nothing wrong with talking a little shit to defend your town. Quite a bit wrong with coming off like a clueless tool on broadcast TV (whether or not the remarks were "in jest").

Also, note to Cards-bashers: say what you want about the team, we STL fans have already said it all ourselves.

FYI, Tony Gwynn was in the background laughing the entire time, though it was probably more of an "oh shit he's gonna anger plenty of people with this one" laugh. Apparently the A/C in the booth was broken, and it was clearing triple digits up there in their little room.

Plus, who in the midwest drives an El Camino? I haven't spent a TON of time in that area, but I thought southern california kinda cornered the market on El Caminos.

I should also note that Vasgersian made a disparaging remark about the Arch being an overrated tourist attraction, too, if any of you StL fans need more fodder for your "San Diego Sucks" meetings later at the local Steak & Shake.

As a born and raised St. Louisan who's now a San Diego transplant, I've got to say: Lighten up. Matt's known for his off-the-cuff comments, which are for the most part pretty damn funny. During Saturday's game versus the Giants where Bonds hit #755 he made another comment that I'm sure got Giants fans riled up. A long ball was hit out to left by the Pads which Bonds failed to pull in twice because he couldn't hustle. After seeing that, Matt commented on Bonds history as a golden glover, qualifying it with the fact that it had been over ten years or so since he last won the award, attributing that to his, er, "bigger body."

He also made those comments after getting slammed by the Cards in a 10 run inning! It's clear that stung him a bit. I heard the comments myself, and while surprised I let 'em go knowing his history and understanding the context. In fact, it's pretty hard not to smile to yourself after seeing what I saw in the fifth.

Seriously, there's a reason that we (Cardinals fans) are considered the best fans in baseball, and it's not because we get riled up over stuff like this. Let it go. Come on guys, we're better than this.

Stay classy St. Louis.

Another example would have been when they were showing Bonds home runs between certain ages. Matt commented on the number Bonds had hit between 36 and 40 being much higher than any other ages (if I recall correctly). Mark Grant gave a "Hmmm."

Hot as shit, I thank the lord that I do not live in Missouri anymore because it gets so damn hot. The two jokers who jumped over the wall well every park eventually has one of them. The El Camino comment was awesome, funny stuff. If it bothers everyone then boycot San Diego but I for one will enjoy the nice weather, beautiful women, and overpriced housing market.

The next night he made a poor attempt at explaining.

grew up in STL went to school in the ozarks now in SD for ten years always a cards fan. Matty is a joker and comes up with some pretty funny shit (this comment included) harmless fun and it is hot as shit in STL I was there last August.. WHile the cards have had the Pads number in the post season (although Bochy fucked up by pitching Peavy first last year it would have been a different series if C Young started the first game.) The Pads have kicked the cards ass this year and last year in the regular season... and will probably win the next two games in STL because the Cards really do suck this year...

Last year was the Pads World Series to lose. And lose they did. Boch didn't mess anything up last year. Now pitching Woody Williams in game one in '05, that was a mistake. Leave Matty alone. He's big-time (NFL on FOX, video games)...and he's going to be even bigger (Dodgers, et al). Aren't Cards fans supposed to know everything anyway?

Sorry, but the whole country isn't a cesspool with so little to offer that people have to live vicariously through their sports teams.

Vasgersian talks about the Ozarks and El Caminos and people think that winning a couple of playoff series puts him in his place. Actually, that just proves what hicks they are.

the key word there is WHITE trash infested shithole. On the other hand, Sand Diego is a BROWN trash infested shithole.

St. Louis has more personality than Matt V's waxed eyebrows could ever hope to portray.

I love how everyone keeps associating St. Louis with the Ozarks because it shows such ignorance. There is quite a distance between St. Louis and the Ozarks, but you ignorant gas guzzling, insecure, hide behind my paycheck pussies don't know any different. You people are worse than the mexicans that have taken over your state!

"Next time you take your obese, miserable family on their bi-centennial vacation in said El Camino be sure to check out San Diego. Matty V is the best!"

Yeah, I will be sure to check out a 4th rate californian city in my el camino. That is like going to Nevada and visiting Reno.

Oh my, I never would have guessed you are from Missouri.

It sure is fun to get you people riled. I can imagine saying Jack Buck was a boring old man and Tony LaRussa looks like Rosie O'Donnell's older sister and you wishing California would fall into the ocean and take all the Hollywood liberals and Mexicanos with it.

There, there. You seem upset. Why not go read Three Nights In August, arugably the greatest book not named the Holy Frickin' Bible, and just ask yourself, What Would TLR Do?

actually, i am not from missouri. I am from central illinois, near chicago. It just bothers me when west coasters (esp. those that live in a 4th rate city like San Diego) think they are better than the rest of the world.

You people are a bunch of idiots and everybody knows it. Everybody except your smug, idiotic selves!

1:43 AM Actually, St Louis is in the Ozarks, but barely. (the City isnt, but the county is) The Ozarks (also referred to as Ozarks Mountain Country, the Ozark Mountains or the Ozark Plateau) is a physiographic, geologic, and cultural highland region of the central United States. It covers much of the southern half of Missouri and an extensive portion of northwest and north central Arkansas. The region also extends westward into extreme southeast Kansas and northeastern Oklahoma.
History lesson over

Sports aside I am happy to be from and live in MO. I understand the SoCal complex. The people I grew up with here that moved to SoCal are the ones that found their self worth in shiny things the symbol on the front of their car. You grow up watching 90210 and the OC and actually think it makes you part of something important...

It's a great place to visit, but not a lot of interesting people. Let's talk about image and money for 7 hours.

Being a Cardinal fan, I have always been partial to St. Louis. I have visited St. Louis several times and found the city fun to visit with a number of outstanding attractions. If you do some investigating you will find that St.Louis is not the "hick town" that it is made out to be. In fact, even though San Diego is ranked ahead of St.Louis in population, the two cities are about equal in their Metro area populations(around 2.6 to 2.8 million). Surprisingly, St.Louis is ranked ahead of San Diego as far as media markets go. Though San Diego is listed as a city with over one million people and St. Louis is said to only have 350,000 citizens, the population density of St.Louis is much greater. This is because San Diego's city boundaries encompass around 300 square miles while St.Louis has only 68 square miles within its confines.

I also have an affinity for San Diego as well, because I lived there for about 12 years and still have some family and friends in the area. However, some of you are putting down St.Louis by acting like San Diego is "paradise on earth". I can assure you it is not. There is much to like about San Diego...the ocean, the hills, the tropical foliage, the climate, the Mexican food, etc. However, we left San Diego because of the high cost of living there...the price of a single family home there has gone through the roof. For all the money you pay for your home, what do you get? Generally, an old, small home with an insignificant yard. San Diego also has its share of drug trafficking crimes and the like. BTW, you will find many of the same types of people in the San Diego area as you would in the St.Louis area. As far as El Caminos go, I would imagine that you would find more around San Diego than St.Louis. As far as I can tell the Ozarks are not close to St.Louis or St.Louis County. BTW, Barstow is 181 miles(approx. 3 hours or less) from San Diego...about as far as Springfield is from St.Louis. I am not an expert on this, but it appears that Springfield is kind of like the "gateway of the Ozarks".

Anyway, I have listened to Vasgersian in the past and frankly I am little disappointed that he would stoop to this level. Since he used to be a Brewer's announcer too, I am sure he is just tired of the Cardinals getting the best of his teams. Can we please stop using profanity to get across points? Thanks for understanding.

I've lived in both chicago and san diego. I've visited St. Louis many times. Matt said what 90% of all visitors to St. Louis say every August, "This place sucks." It's true. You're not going to change anyone's opinion on the matter, no matter HOW passionate you are about your town.

This is true, St. Louis sucks, the Cardinals suck, and a good majority of their fans just pick up the Cardinals because of Pujols.

LOL - what a tool. Don't know what is worse: the horrid broadcasting by "Matty" or his waxed eyebrows.

And the irony is, despite the nice weather, SD manages to be a true toilet.
