ESPN Announcer James Bates Falls Off His Stool!
If you haven't seen this yet, it's pretty funny. During the pregame of the Xavier and Dayton game, announcer James Bates demonstrated that the unexpected can happen at any moment on live TV. As Bates was preparing to announce the game with Steve Wolf, the stool that Bates was sitting on broke and he promptly dropped to the floor. Bates jumped right back into the action as if nothing had happened. "We're ready to rock...you see how rough things are here!" said Bates.
