There was an awkward moment around the 7th/8th inning when DO started talking and Millar interrupted. O’Brien continued, and said “Kevin” like he was speaking to Millar the whole time. He wasn’t. He was just broadcasting, but he wove Kevin’s name in there to masterfully disguise the interruption as natural conversation.
I can’t imagine it was easy to have Millar remote, let alone his high energy coming in through an earpiece.
I feel like Millar would do postgame with Wake very well. Wakefield is calm, and his almost monotone speech sounds silly paired with that rock n roll music that plays over game highlights. (Most sports highlight reel music is cringe. I just got NESN a few weeks ago, and I’m unimpressed with some of the creative decisions, but Wakefield has an amazing wardrobe)
Millar sounds like he’s judging a wet T-shirt competition.
