One of the latest trends in sports has become the “video bomb” in which players intentionally get in the camera frame during an interview or report and distract the viewer from the original report.
For SportsNet LA, Alanna Rizzo is the dugout reporter, often providing updates and insight from the dugout during broadcasts. During Monday’s game in Pittsburgh, she became victim to one of these video bombs when Hanley Ramirez and Yasiel Puig did their best to take her attention from her report. Both players were sitting out the contest because of hand injuries sustained from being hit by a pitch and seems as if they had little else to do.
Despite their best efforts, Rizzo continued on with the report in true professional reporter fashion. The former MLB Network reporter has gotten used to the antics in the dugout and clubhouse, especially with the characters on this Dodgers team.
