One Man's TV Nightmare Is Another's Comedy Gold

If you're like me, you're tired of boring TV segments in which the sports anchor doesn't stumble over words or get his video clips mixed up. Too slick, too conventional. Give me a guy like Huntington University's Tom Brodbeck any day. Bewildered, sweaty, completely out of his element; this is a sportscast I can enjoy. It's not quite "Boom goes the dynamite" hilarious, but Tom gets major style points when at one point he slams the desk and pleads "Can we just start over?" Yes, we can all relate to that.

Of course, when you're struggling like this, it's always helpful to have a couple of smart-ass girls in the studio mocking you relentlessly.

BONUS: Since this concerns an actual newscaster, Anchorman quotes are in play. (Blows whistle, makes revolving motion with arm).
