Red Sox Broadcasters Don Orsillo And Jerry Remy Cannot Figure Out How A Lightsaber Works

NESN's Red Sox broadcast team of Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy show up often in these parts, usually due to their inability to hold themselves together due to some wacky fans in the stands. Today's meltdown was self-imposed, as a toy lightsaber that found its way to the broadcast booth (owing to yet another of those intolerable Star Wars days) distracted the team so much they nearly missed a Cody Ross homer.

Rem Dawg appears to have never even heard of the weapon and was only marginally familiar with the Star Wars universe, while Orsillo struggled with the basic operation of a children's toy and at one point appeared to break it. This is your season, Red Sox fans: Jerry Remy saying "I think it gets bigger than that, doesn't it?" [NESN]
