Your #askthebooth Questions That Didn’t Make Air


This is also a bad idea

This weekend, the Phillies’ broadcast made its first foray into interactive television with its “Ask The Booth” segment.  The Phillies asked you, the viewer, to pose questions to T-Mac, Wheels, and Sarge. As expected, the results were disastrous.

I pity the production assistant who was tasked with combing through the litany of #askthebooth Tweets to find ones that were suitable for air, let alone coherent. Here are some that didn’t quite make the cut. As always, your Tweets are unedited.

  1. T Mac and wheels must have some dirt on someone in charge of who goes on tv and who goes on radio. Scotty Franz and LA are a billion times better than these guys. I really dont understand how we can be top 3 teams in the majors for like that past 4 years and have such shitty announcers! it boogles the mind! T Mac with his corny openings and if we go to Cincy next year and I have to hear Wheels talk about how it stays light out later there b/c its so close to Kentucky, my head will explode!

  2. This was very likely the best thing to ever happen to twitter. Comedy fucking GOLD. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard in my life. One that stands out: (Don’t ask who tweeted it, I don’t remember) What was in Marsalis Wallace’s briefcase? Follow up question: Does he look like a bitch?

  3. Nice collection, but you missed some great ones. I was shocked at the way this unfolded. It was a stupid idea to begin with. If they didn’t realize that before it started, you would think they would have figured it out within the first half-hour the first night. When they brought it back last night, I was shocked. I love Tmac’s passive agressive disclaimer each time: “We can’t answer all of the more interesting questions, like . . . [insert mundane question here why secretly fuming about questions about my manboobs].” I think somebody read the first night’s stream, and they decided to double down. They are taunting us, and we need to respond accordingly.

  4. i’m literally in tears. love the guy who incorporated the citizens bank commercial. “how often does wheels rub it on his pantaloons man?” wow, more please.

  5. I have been watching since Dusty Rhoads hit his famous home run,and I have been wandering when was it started that the pitcher or catcher appealed to either first or third base for a strke call.I feel that if it was in effect when Bob Feller was pitching he would have had 6,000 strike outs.

  6. @darwin hendricks…what?? is that like your ask the booth question or something? i’m so confused…

  7. I actually shared the #askthebooth search results with a friend not on Twitter – he almost peed himself. Talk about a perfect storm – gold for the phans, terror for the announcers. Genius.
    Thank you Kyle for compiling some of these. Like I said the other day, I feel that a, #askthebooth segment on Crossing Broad should be a weekly thing 🙂

  8. i also recommend the ask the booth questions during rain delays on tv, as much as i enjoying seeing footage from the 93 team its starting to get old.

  9. This exchange below is HILARIOUS! Although i bet its not tmac, wheels or sarge doing the responding, just reading over some of the conversations and visualizing sarge or t mac saying them has me laughing my balls off!

    @theJamesIsJames Dong lick!

  10. Tom,Wheels and Sarge: How do the bat boys get chosen? My Friend and I have wanted to meet you fellows for a long time and when we ask they always tell us no. You guys are the best broadcasters since Harry Kalas. Have a great day and we will be at the park on Saturday the 17 of Sept. Nancy Hodge, Danville, Pa.

  11. If a pitcher, pitches to23 hitters with no hitsand arm.then arelife pitcher comes and gets 4 out ,would that be a perfect game? and who would would grt the credit?

  12. Has Sarge been disciplined yet by the Phillies for insulting people during a broadcast about their weight gain or hair loss?
