The worst 3 and 3/4 minutes in sports broadcasting history.

This poor kid, Brian Collins, is trying to do the sports for Ball State's campus news program. Unfortunately, the teleprompter goes out and then comes back on at an increased speed and he only gets in one word out of 3. He does have a typed script but the pages were hopelessly out of order. Then he looks at the wrong playback monitor as he tries to wing it and descibes a different game than what the viewers see. However, at 2:30, he still manages to get in his signature tag line.
