Today In Evidence That Baseball Is A Slow Game: Praying Mantises

  • Timothy Burke

The Red Sox-Royals broadcast last night on NESN was completely derailed by a member of team Mantodea.

Call it a NESN Obsession. At several points in the broadcast, both booth announcers and field reporter Heidi Watney reported on mantis facts and — yes — criticism.

Given mantises are edible, we’re disappointed Watney didn’t give us another one of these moments.
