Chip Caray Has One Job In Life, And He Blows It

Great game between the Twins and Tigers today to settle the AL Central. Wish I could say the same though for TBS play-by-play announcer Chip Caray.

(12 innings? Wait, Twins & Tigers could’ve gone home in the 10th - per Chip)

Scene-check: Tie game, bottom of the 10th, one out, Twins have winning run in Alexi Casillas at third base and Nick Punto at the plate.

Video of the Caray-wrought catastrophe after the jump.

I spent 10 years as a major and minor-league baseball announcer on radio and television, so I realize there’s a lot of pressure on Caray in that situation.

(”Line drive basehit! … caught out there!”)

Opposite day!

As a public service, here’s the radio feed of the game.

UPDATE: Twins win 6-5 in 12. Can’t tell you if Caray botched anything at the end as I was dialed into Dan Schulman and Dave Campbell on ESPN radio.

Silver lining: Caray will be able to show his face in the Twins’ clubhouse without being duct-taped to a urinal.
