1. What I like best about someone complaining about clickbait is that I can then turn that into clickbait for Traina Thoughts. Everything comes full circle. Enter the always funny Joe Buck. The veteran Fox host said on a podcast this week that he occasionally enjoyed an adult drink while calling games.
During baseball games, Buck said he would get a runner to drink “the biggest beer the stadium ever sold,” which he would drink gradually throughout the game.
“I had it there and drank it from time to time to remind myself to relax and have fun. I’m just making a game, ”Buck said. And I took him to football, but because Troy [Aikman] He’s a man of finer tastes, the beer somehow turned into tequila, Grand Marnier, and grapefruit juice.
“We haven’t done it in a long time, but it was good for one leg and I feel like it’s a good mental trigger to just relax and remind yourself that you are not refueling an F-16 mid-flight. You’re doing a sporting event and if you treat it like anything else, you’re doing yourself a disservice. “
Naturally all the sites were published with this quote and in some places (not SI of course) the story became Joe Buck drinking heavily while calling games on TV, although his exact quote was: “I would take it from once in a while on time. “
Buck took to Twitter Wednesday night to clarify his comments and express his frustration with the clickbait and how the story was reported.
Buck was right. He should have left this alone because the story would have ended, but now he has another 24-48 hours to live.
This is where podcasts get tricky. Guests feel relaxed and comfortable; they don’t imagine their words becoming headlines and the tone and context are completely lost when quotes are read instead of listening. I’ll also open the curtain here to let you know that the PR company for the podcast Buck appeared in sent the drinking quote to the media, including yours. That was the angle they wanted the media to push.
So while Joe Buck was frustrated with clickbait, the podcast he appeared on was excited about clickbait.
