Bill Plaschke Hitting On Jackie MacMullan Is The Most Awkward Thing We’ve Seen In A While
June 5 / Evan Sporer / SportsGrid
Holy awkward! Come on Reali, hit the mute button for God's sake! Deduct points! Do something! For the love of God, do something!
This thing only gets creepier as it goes along. As if Woody Paige and Tim Cowlishaw's awkward silence wasn't enough, the persistent Plaschke just has to get in that extra word, sort of like an over-anxious 13-year-old boy that double texts his crush.
"You are smokin', you are smokin' today."
Jackie Mac's "Bill, alright man," that immediately follows is that tell-tale, "This sort of sounds like it could be complimentary, but still, would probably be a good idea if you stopped there." And then, per usual, Tony Reali comes out on top. "I'm sitting here in the makeup chair and all I'm hearing is if Plaschke's not giving his pillow, he's giving his invitation." Touché, Reali. Touché.
