Brad Lidge enters Ray Finkle status following emergence of volunteer play-by-play guy

The subtle title of the video, "BRAD LIDGE, YOU'RE KILLING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" coupled with the calm, graceful ending, doesn't have us the least bit concerned for the well-being of Brad Lidge

Also, the "announcer's" somewhat stifled outbursts and lack of expletives lead us to
believe he is either working in the back of
Discovery Zone or parked in a van outside of Lidge's residence.

Some actual quotes from the video:

"Oh yeah, you're happy now, Hee hee ha ha…"

"Might as well give a meatball here.  Oh god!"

"This is just… it's shocking… it's unbelievable.  He better be on suicide watch…"

"Yeah, talk to him, talk to him Paulie.  Ugh.  Hey Brad, really bad job that last better. Yeah, you're probably right. Alright, meet you at the bar later."

"0-2, what are you going to throw a meatball for this guy to crush?!"

    Who the fuck records themselves doing commentary during a baseball game?

    My thoughts exactly. What a loser!

    I was going to right a brief skit involving the conversation this guy must have had with his wife when he called down to ask what he was doing, but then I thought it through. There’s no way this clown has a girl upstairs waiting for him. Or ever will.

    Hilarious. You’d think it was Game 7 of the NLCS the way this guy’s reacting.

    I’m with you: the next video is going to show Brad Lidge in a pit while a voice off-screen intones, “it puts the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again.”

    Aside from giving TV pbp when there is pbp going on the TV, this is relatable on a lot of levels as every Mets closer has down this well….. not to the level Lidge has dissented into.
