Folks, he's done it again.
In the same ballpark where he hit the home run at the most unfortunate moment in Thom Brennaman's career, Nick Castellanos launched another shot to left field in Kansas City while the broadcast was eulogizing a 96-year-old World War II veteran. This is unbelievable.
Of course, who could forget the OG moment:
This guy simply does not give a fuck. Do not start any serious video package or career-ending apology when Castellanos is up in Kauffman Stadium, because odds are he's launching one into the fountains as soon as you come back from commercial.
I don't even know what I can say about Castellanos' comedic timing that isn't already evident in his work. There are professional comedians who have been telling jokes for a living for decades who don't have that kind of flair.
I can't get enough of the play-by-play guy once he realizes the ball is going out.
"There's never a great time to ... eulogize someone during a broadcast." That may be true, but there is definitely a better time than when dinger machine Nick Castellanos — who has already proven he will shit all over your broadcast in this very ballpark — is at the plate. Save the heartfelt moment for when Jonathan India comes up.
By the way, do you know when Castellanos hit his first career home run in professional baseball? The same day the U.S. killed Osama Bin Laden. This guy is genuinely out of control.
