David Vassegh’s trip down Brewers slide has horrific ending
David Vassegh — the Spectrum SportsNet Dodgers reporter —wound up in a cast after his trip down Bernie the Brewers’ slide didn’t go as deliberate at American Family Field in Milwaukee.
The Dodgers broadcast confirmed Vassegh’s trip down the slide, which noticed the reporter repeatedly yelling, “Holy crap” — earlier than he slammed right into a assist wall and instantly grabbed his proper arm.
Vassegh, whose proper arm appeared to get caught behind him when he hit the wall, was grimacing in ache whereas holding his arm and rolling round on the bottom.
Dodgers broadcasters Joe Davis and Nomar Garciaparra couldn’t cease laughing, with Davis saying, “First I want to report, he’s OK.”
Vassegh then appeared on the printed in a smooth cast as much as his elbow.
“Hi guys, I do my own stunts, Tom Cruise style,” he stated, smiling.
Vassegh reportedly said he has two fractures in his proper hand/wrist and 6 fractured ribs.
“Skinny fat body can’t handle it,” he added.
When Vassegh interviewed Austin Barnes, who homered in LA’s 2-1 victory, the Dodgers catcher stated, “That one was for you. I know you had a little accident today on the slide. We all rallied today for you.”
“I tried to @shaqtin and slide won,” Vassegh tweeted, referring to Shaquille O’Neal’s Shaqtin’ A Fool — a present that highlights essentially the most outrageous and silly performs within the NBA.
