Off sync with the Giants and my parents


I called my parents the second Juan Uribe won the game for the Giants last night to get their thoughts on the Giants somehow taking a 3-1 lead.

SULLY:
Some game! Up 3-1!

SULLY’S DAD:
I love it.

SULLY’S MOM:
It’s great but watching it out of sync is driving me crazy.

SULLY:
(As confused as you)
Wait. Are you watching it live or on DVR? Do you not know how it ends?

SULLY’S MOM:
Oh we watched the ending. But it’s all out of sync because Poppy has the radio on.

SULLY’S DAD:
I have to hear Kruk and Kuip.

(Kruk and Kuip refer to Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper, the wonderful Giants announcers on KNBR.)

SULLY:
But dad… if you are listening to the radio, you are hearing it before you are seeing it.

SULLY’S DAD:
The delay isn’t bad.

SULLY’S MOM:
It’s AWFUL. It’s 30 seconds.

SULLY’S DAD:
It’s NOT 30 seconds. It’s about 11 seconds.

SULLY:
11 seconds? It might as well be a minute! You could be hearing “Long drive and it is GONE!” while the visual is the pitcher picking up the rosin bag.

SULLY’S MOM:
It drives me crazy.

SULLY’S DAD:
I just can’t take Joe Buck and Tim McCarver.

SULLY:
I know it is rough. I had to hear them call two Red Sox World Series titles. But you’ve got to bite the bullet on this and watch it live.

SULLY’S MOM:
Thank you!

SULLY’S DAD:
But baseball is basically a lot of talk and a highlight here and there. So most of the time it is fine to be out of sync. It only affects it on the big plays.

SULLY’S MOM:
Yeah, it only is annoying at the most exciting moments of the game.

SULLY:
Dad. Why don’t you go into the living room and listen to KNBR and let mom watch the game without her feeling like she is watching a Godzilla movie?

SULLY’S DAD:
Maybe I will.

Today I found out that my dad “figured out how to get the radio in sync with the TV.” I am sure it will work fine.

So Poppy… if you want to see the end of the game with the KNBR guys in SYNC… CLICK HERE.
