Ah, the joys of live television. During today’s intro piece for Game 3 of the 2011 Western Conference Finals between the Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder (in progress), Doris Burke had a little trouble with her lines. Twice.
I think she thought that it was a pre-recorded number. Watch the video:
[UPDATE: I’ve since read one internet online commenting person who believes that this was actually the fault of someone at the studio who cued up a previous “mis-speak” by Doris, rather than one that was pre-recorded correctly (in other words, it wasn’t live). Either way, it’s a tough business, Doris.]
