Matty V's "regrettably horrific timing" strikes again.

During coverage of the Brad Hawpe injury on the MLB Network last night, Matt Vasgersian attempted to lighten the mood a bit and failed miserably

 

 

Deadspin has the full write-up.

For those, who can't watch/hear the clip: Vasgersian went back to the tape to point out that one of the EMTs looked like Donovan McNabb. (He looks nothing like Donovan McNabb.) His "quip" was met with stunned silence from his broadcast partners and an in-ear reminder from his producer, "You know we're live, right?"

For the record, Matty V. has apologized today.

“I am an idiot .. Save the racial stuff which is just flat out wrong, almost all of what has been posted on my regrettably horrific timing is spot on .. It was a bad decision made on live tv and i can absolutely understand how that make an announcer sound insensitive. Bad on the spot judgment. Nobody feels worse about it than I do guys.”

I'm sure Mark Neely is checking the internet every couple of minutes praying that Matty hasn't resigned or been fired.
