Viral Video of the Day: Bad British MLB Commentary

What happens when a British guy who knows nothing about baseball tries to commentate a baseball game?

"Blimey O'Reilly! Look at those bags under his eyes. Get some sleep, man!"

Confusion over the catcher's eye black is just the tip of the iceberg for this befuddled limey. Mistaking America's pastime for cricket and the scoreboard for an airport departures schedule, this British announcer fails spectacularly at calling a baseball game.

But what he lacks in knowledge, he more than makes up for with enthusiasm, grandiloquence, and comedy, ultimately producing a video funny enough to make even the Queen's Guard laugh.
