The Best Of Twitter’s Reaction To The Fox Game Truck Fiasco
October 27 / Tanya Ray Fox / SportsGrid
The World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the New York Mets commenced on Tuesday night on Fox, and it could not have gone more disastrously for the poor crew in the game truck.
Right around the bottom of the fourth inning of Game 1 with the score tied 1-1, the Fox broadcast went dark due to to technical difficulty. And it didn't go dark for a few seconds, or even a minute. The game was delayed for five minutes as the problem, which the studio crew attributed to a power issue with the game truck, was resolved.
In fact, it lasted so long that Fox Sports had the time to tweet about it.
Later in the game, the broadcast was cut off again due to technical difficulties; although that time it was resolved in a matter of seconds.
Of course the best part of the entire pitiful debacle was the internet's response. Twitter was flooded with jokes and memes aplenty, and unless you are a Mets or Royals fan, they made the debacle entirely worth it.
