In the latest edition of her video diary, NESN Red Sox field reporter Heidi Watney took her camera and shot a behind-the-scenes look at Fenway Park while Hurricane Irene was bearing down on New England. It was during the August 27 day-night doubleheader between the Oakland A’s and Boston Red Sox. First, Heidi is looking very fashionable in her rain hat and galoshes.
In this video diary, Heidi shows Peter Gammons getting ready for a NESN spot and tours the press box speaking to a couple of beat writers. Then Heidi is shown doing a NESN hit with the Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo. But the best part comes at 3:10 when Heidi reveals Red Sox announcers Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy sleeping during the delay. Now you know what announcers do when rain is falling.
Great stuff. I think Heidi has now topped the choking on chicken waffles viral video with this diary.
