We were flipping back and forth between the Olympics and the Nationals game on MASN2 shortly after 8:20 p.m. Saturday when these scenes below the jump came to our eyes.
OK, not exactly a blue screen of death. More like a blue screen of complete and utter confusion. (For the record, a quick flip to the Orioles game showed that MASN proper wasn't having this problem.)
Play-by-play man Bob Carpenter noted that the crack technical staff was aware of the situation (something to do with the video feed), and frankly, we felt a little sorry for him. After all, it's a TV personality truism that if the show looks bad, you look bad, even if it's not your fault.
Luckily, the problem was quickly fixed. And whereas in past years, this might have been cause for more eye-rolling, this year, it's just a delightfully quirky part of what has been a delightful Washington baseball season.
