You may be familiar with the broadcast stylings of Rex Hudler, the Wonder Dog, who does color commentary for the Angels and Fox's Saturday games. If you're not familiar with him, his commentary is similar to his playing style: fun and passionate, but all over the place and without much substance. He's known best for coining Hudlerisms, which are his silly way of describing normal baseball occurrences (e.g. he called Francisco Rodriguez K-riffic tonight after a strikeout, and one of his favorites is "John Lackey, keepin' it on tracky").
Well, he and Steve Physioc, the play-by-play guy, were promoting an upcoming Angels giveaway. They were describing this woven beach mat, which was being demonstrated by an attractive young woman in a tight shirt and short shorts. The woman proceeds to show us how the mat should be used, lying down on it in a rather suggestive pose, upon which Rex remarks loudly, "Wow, would you look at that!" There's a moment of hesitation before Rex adds, "...MAT. Look at that MAT. And that surfboard, isn't that surfboard great?"
Physioc is laughing hysterically and Rex is backpedaling at the speed of light, even commenting on how dirty the surfboard is, trying desperately to divert our attention from his ogling of the young woman. I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard during a baseball game.
God, I love baseball.
I need to watch more west coast games.
