Hunter Pence dropped a bunch of F-bombs in a great speech he gave during the San Francisco Giants’ celebration on Thursday night for clinching a playoff spot.
The speech was one obviously intended for Pence and his teammates, but several media members and TV cameras were around to capture it. CSN Bay Area even aired it live!
On Friday, CSN Bay Area apologized for airing the speech.
“What happened last night, we completely regret it and apologize not just to the viewers, including parents, children and the San Francisco Giants, but to Hunter Pence, who was unaware that our camera was there and showing it live,” said Ted Griggs, CSN Bay Area president and general manager, via the San Jose Mercury News. “We usually take a lot of steps so that kind of thing does not happen, but it was sort of a perfect storm when it happened and we regret it.
Griggs said they usually record things and play them back later after they’ve been reviewed and censored. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you view it, Pence’s speech was shown live.
Nothing about the speech should surprise you; after the Giants won the World Series in 2012, Pence was credited with turning around the Giants’ season thanks to a great speech he gave.
Pence was so animated during the speech, we might have to call him “T-Bone”!
