Telecrass

November 9, 2011

The Tiger’s VP of Communications Ron Colangelo recently tweeted this question:

Being a company man such as I am, I decided it was my responsibility to pitch in.

  • Have the FS Detroit Girls put on some makeup for once.  See if they could try to be a little flirty too. Come on!
  • You know those helmet cameras they put on snowboarders or reality TV contestants that let you see everything from their perspective? Put one on Rod Allen.  That way the fans can verify who he says he is seeing.
  • Broadcast the entire game with the infrared camera so it seems like an Iraq bombing run. Add bomb sound effects during each pitch.
  • More animated robots
  • Have Mario and Heather Nabozny switch jobs for a day.
  • Invite a constant stream of B-list celebrities into the booth to talk about their new project.
  • Make the trivia questions much harder. Everyone knows them right away now.
  • Interview players from the other team more after they game.  That’s what fans really want and it keeps us from having to make up some BS to feed Ryan Field.
  • Let the unauthorized “watch your car” parking guys do Shannon Hogan’s job for a day.
  • Ask Shannon Hogan to wear larger belts.
  • Air the smoke break conversations from the guys in the truck.
  • When broadcasting from Kansas City, just put a sprinkler in front of the camera so at least the picture is consistent.
  • Just pick one Little Ceasers commercial and stick with it all year.  Those never get old.
  • Choose William Hung’s April in the D song. Play on loop.
  • See how soon you can start the bump music when an inning is about to end.  If there is two outs, and I point to the sky, just start the music.  When the ball is hit softly on the ground to an infielder (except for Ryan or Wilson), just start the music.

    If they put a helmet cam on Rod Allen, they’d have to put two that point in opposite directions so that the viewers get a true assessment of how Rod really views the world through his segmented eyes.

    I like the Rod Allen I See You Verification Camera idea. Also I want to see Mario try to take care of the grounds as well as Heather does. 🙂

    The sprinkler in front of the camera at KC is easily the best of the bunch. Literally laughed out loud.
