All my life I wondered what that big "thing" in the sky actually was ... never would have guessed it was a planet.
Royals TV Announcer is Convinced That the Moon is Actually a Planet
Wednesday, May 14, 2014
Rex Hudler, a former first-round pick of the Yankees, called the moon 'a beautiful planet,' during Tuesday night's Royals game. After being informed that the moon was, in fact, a moon, he said, 'That looks like a planet to me.'
Royals TV announcer Rex Hudler got caught gazing at the moon Tuesday night, and came off sounding like a space cadet.
When Fox’s cameras showed a full moon over Kauffman Stadium in the bottom of the fourth inning, play-by-play man Steve Physioc quipped that it’s a sports broadcasting rule to incorporate “at least one shot” of the moon into the telecast.
Hudler agreed, saying, “I like that rule. It’s a beautiful planet.”
After almost six seconds of silence, Physioc responded, “Well, it’s a moon.”
Still, Hudler, a former first-round pick of the Yankees who played 13 seasons in The Show, was not convinced.
“That looks like a planet to me,” he said.
Either an eye exam, or a refresher on our solar system — Pluto is no longer a planet! — is in order for Hudler.
