Next month, the world will celebrate the first anniversary of the fateful day a hot mic captured former Cincinnati Reds announcer Thom Brennaman, hurling a homophobic slur amid what would be his last game in the booth.

After realizing he was in a doo-doo heap deeper than Mariana Trench, Brennaman attempted to apologize for the comment a few innings later, but his attempt to redeem himself was abruptly cut short when Nick Castellanos hit a drive to deep left field for a home run that made it a 4-0 game and created a Meme Hall of Famer in the first round in the process.

Now it looks like we have proof that Castellanos possesses the most useless superpower in the world: the ability to create awkward television by jumping into deep left field at the worst possible time.

In the seventh inning of Monday’s game between the Reds and Royals, the Kansas City broadcast team took time to pay tribute to the father of the team’s equipment manager, a WWII veteran. world recently deceased at the age of 96.

Sadly, they were forced to temporarily suspend the tribute after Castellanos sent a cursor to the stands, which led the announcer to remark, “There is never a good time to praise someone. ‘one during the broadcast’ while apologizing.

What a world.
