“It would be like, you guys walking over to a CNN studio in the middle of your day because your power went out and you tell the guys at CNN, hey, take your ear pieces out and your microphones off, we’re going to do it from your booth and just stand in the back”
—Fox Sports announcer Joe Buck on taking over MLB Networks broadcast booth after a massive power failure during game 1 of the World Series last night.
