ESPN’s Molly Qerim was disgusted after guest host Chris “Mad Dog” Russo revealed details about a situation with the Oakland Athletics.
On Wednesday’s first take, Russo assumed the away Team A broadcast room was closed because an animal lived in the walls.
Molly, former NBA star JJ Reddick and Stephen A. Smith were alongside Russo during his tirade.
The moment came during a segment titled “What Are You Mad About?” and “Mad Dog” took the time to fill everyone in on the issue at Oakland Stadium.
He was angered by the ongoing problems with the A’s stadium and called it a “shame” that they have a possum that lives in the away team’s broadcast booth.
“Baseball needs to do something. It’s a shame for the Oakland A’s,” Russo said.
“Last year or two years ago the bathrooms flooded. There was sewage in the field of Alameda.”
“Did anything happen between the A’s and Mets game this weekend? The SNY show couldn’t broadcast from their booth during the A’s series…why?”
“Because a possum lived in the walls!”
The cast was shocked but also held back laughter after Russo’s epic tirade.
Molly reacted in disgust after an image of the possum in the wall appeared on the screen.
“Eww, that’s disgusting. That’s disgusting.”
Molly wasn’t the only one who was disgusted. Several fans took to Twitter and commented.
One said: “Imma put you on mute and just read the captions from now on.”
Another said: “The A’s have to do better or move the team. smh.”
Russo continued his tirade, arguing that MLB pulls the team out of Oakland, California.
“Rob (Manfred), get Oakland out of Oakland. put them somewhere Put her here. Put them on the New York subway system.
