Florida Atlantic color announcer Dave Lamont will be in the booth for the FAU Owls’ game against FIU–described in this article as “The Shula Bowl” LOLOLOL–despite having what is to this point the mother of all radio breakdowns when FAU’s QB Jeff Van Camp was hit in the head while sliding late in last week’s game against Arkansas State. Lamont is a passionate man, and has been the voice of the program for its entire existence, so cut the man a bit of slack when you listen to this.
After all, it’s not every day you challenge an entire pressbox to a fight in the middle of a game.
Lamont has apologized to all parties concerned except for Sun Belt commissioner Wright Waters, who Lamont says he will address in person at Saturday’s game. Really, though, challenging a booth full of journalists to a fight is a very bad idea. Three at once could charge you, and then sit on you. This would be quite heavy, and if they were out of breath they might be unable to move off of you once you really started having difficulty breathing. And that would be embarrassing. (Embarrassing.) (Embarrassing, said a third time for emphasis, just like Dave Lamont would do.)
