Cubs scoreboard operator falls asleep
The Chicago Cubs defeated the New York Mets in a 2-1 pitchers’ duel on Tuesday night that was apparently too much for a certain scoreboard operator to handle. In the top of the fifth inning, one of the guys who sits behind the manual scoreboard at Wrigley Field was caught on camera catching some Z’s.
Of course, Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez couldn’t resist sharing his thoughts.
“Ohhh, he’s fired,” Hernandez said while chuckling. “Sorry pal, your supervisor will be calling you shortly.”
Those manual scoreboards can take a lot out of you, though I’m guessing the Cubs have more than one employee operating that massive thing. One thing’s for sure — the guy who fell asleep is ready to leave all the nostalgia of Wrigley Field in the rearview and catch up with the times.
