If you have never watched a NESN Red Sox broadcast I will tell you that you are missing out on perhaps one of the most hilarious telecasts you'll ever see. I get people who email me nightly saying things like, "Remy is joking on Kevin Costner," or, "O and Rem are laughing out of control right now." The two really can't be stopped.
Well thanks to NESN we have a behind the scenes look at what exactly sets them off. The answer....cows....
Well, last Sunday, in the break prior to coming back to the start of the game, Russ Kenn and I were telling Don and Jerry that we would be showing some scenic’s of Vermont for our opening billboards, and the conversation turned to talking about cows for some reason. We started to get silly and were speculating that the cows in the scenics were the same cows that were in the Connecticut scenics, or that they were actually professional cows from Hollywood who travel around the country acting for scenics.If this were school, I think it might be time for the teacher to separate these two. If one of them passes gas they're out of commission for a good ten minutes. That's what makes them so enjoyable though. Don't change a thing NESN and keep putting together clips like this for us.
The laughter started to build, and about 10 seconds before we got back it became uncontrollable. Don was unable to read the billboard copy because he was laughing so hard…Jerry was rolling in his chair with his finger on the “talk-back” button…the button that allows him to talk to the truck without his audio going out on the air.
Two of my cameramen, Bill Titus and Matt Johnson, immediately shot the booth so we could see what was going on.
