High school announcer has no time for dead dog talk

First and foremost, rest in peace to sweet Lucy. Let’s get our condolences out there first. As you will soon learn, Lucy passed away in her own driveway at the tender age of twelve years old. It was an absolute tragedy, and her owner used his platform on a Minnesota high school basketball broadcast to share her memory with his audience.

However, his broadcast partner was much more interested in talking about the breakaway dunk that occurred during Lucy’s on-air tribute.


Complete savagery by the color analyst here…

But thanks to this viral moment, so many more people now know about Lucy’s twelve good years in Minnesota. Her legacy will forever live on through this video, which I bet you any amount of money Rex Chapman has already retweeted or will retweet by noon.

    Oh boy. Smh. How… um… uncomfortable that must have been for everyone involved.

    Well, that’s….. something.

    Weird time to talk about it, and probably equally as weird of a response.

    Some announcers are just terrible at ad libbing. Granted, this guy is probably working for free. Was listening to some old audio of Caywood Ledford calling a basketball game recently. Favorite thing I heard Caywood say was “he went past him like he was nailed to the floor.” Now that’s entertainment.

    The dog was old, that’s what old dogs do, they die.
