2017 Reds

Thom Brennaman interviewed a bird. This is a thing that actually happened.

Thom Brennaman interviewed a bird during Sunday’s game. A dove, really.

The Reds are barely under .500. Why has it devolved to this already?

  1. Comments referring to bird brains or comparing sizes of brains will be removed, per site guidelines.

  2. Ya know, I typically watch the game through mlb.com but use the radio feed overlay because Thom drives me nuts, so I saw some of this and tried not to imagine the ‘conversation.’ And yet, I played this video.

  3. Sorry, but I actually thought this was almost as funny as Adam from Milwaukee. 🙂 The best part was when the Bird (Jim Day) says “I don’t go to the radio booth because I don’t like cranky old men!” I don’t care who you are, that there is funny!

  4. Discussion with “Rally Bird” was amusing for a while … especially the shot at his Dad. But a little bit does go a long way.

    Now, if we had come back and won …

    • Forgotten in all of this is how tough it must have been for the bird. I was worried about him and considered calling ASPCA.

  5. It was the worst ballgame broadcast I have ever watched. Thom was talking to the bird over 2 innings before I came to my senses and turned off the TV. Thom was not funny but he thought he was. Jim Day made a couple of humorous comments. I am not sure what Reds fans have done to be punished with Thom. Talking to a bird while getting paid to broadcast a baseball game is not only stupid and juvenile it is an insult to folks who are expecting to see a professional media person broadcast a ball game. The bird said nothing which would have been a good strategy for Thom.

    • On the other hand, it kept Thom from talking about other things, and the value of that is hard to dismiss.

  6. I thought it was a fun way to distract from the game (a never-ending reminder of the horrible state of the starting pitching and how little of a chance it gives the Reds to win currently). It was spontaneous, unplanned and unrehearsed, which made it even more fun.
