As I type this, those who muse so gently are discussing what their most tense interview was in their illustrious history, which leads its way into a perfect discussion topic for us here at the unticket.
I have searched my memory banks quite thoroughly and can come up with a few, including Dan and Dale’s, “What, are you walking out?!?” moment, the time that Jerry Jones said “bullshit” on the air and they let it pass through the dump button, and one time when Junior and Norm argued through two breaks about some sports point that I don’t even remember.
Aside from that being the longest sentence in the history of ever, take a moment to reflect and put what your memory serves up as the most tense on air moment of all time.
Mine, without question, is the first time that Pete Stein was on the air. This was when Rhynes did the infamous countdown, letting him know that his career was over when he got to zero. That was really difficult to listen to, as you could hear Rhyner’s ego get the best of him at that moment and he wasn’t afraid to show it. I still cringe when I think about it.
So, what is it? What is your recollection of the tensest on-air moment? Or, do you have an off-air story to pass along to the group? Come on, don’t be afraid to share!
