VIDEO: Did 76ers Broadcaster Eric Snow Fall Asleep While Announcing A Game?

It appears Philadelphia 76ers broadcaster Eric Snow fell asleep during the Sixers-Rockets game last night, and thanks to the 7th and Pattison blog, the moment will be preserved forever. The best part, undoubtedly, is the confusion in Snow’s voice when he wakes up to find himself announcing an NBA game.

If you were watching last night on Comcast SportsNet in Philadelphia, you may have missed it. After returning from a commercial break, play-by-play man Marc Zumoff talks about the inspiring play of Evan Turner. At this point, you’d expect Snow to jump in with an anecdote about Turner, but instead, we get silence.

That’s when Zumoff turns to a (presumably sleeping) Snow, and asks, “You meditating?”

Snow, roused from his momentary slumber, sleepily grumbles about trying to “stay awoke.”

Watch video of a drowsy Eric Snow trying to make it through another Sixers game here (the dream sequence starts around the 55 second mark).

    It could very well be a classic case of Sleep Apnea. I was falling asleep at work and once nearly fell asleep driving home. I had good insurance at the time, so I my doctor scheduled a sleep test. I did have Sleep Apnea and now use a CPAP machine every night and I’ve never felt better. Unfortunately, the whole process is very expensive.

    Been there done that … back in the 70′s & 80′s when I was sports director for local radio stations and we covered high school basketball there was more than one time I’d catch myself starting to nod off.

    I produced and did color for the games, didn’t do the play-by-play because of an occasional slight studder, but if the game was boring enough … yep … off I’d nod.

    Sleep apnea … please we’re getting too clinical here … it could very well be the Snow was tired.

    Good grief !

    The NBA is boring enough to make anyone narcoleptic….
