This is not good news to report.
Cincinnati Reds veteran announcer Thom Brennaman might have a terrible career-changing moment during Wednesday's broadcast against the Kansas City Royals.

Brennaman addressed what he said during the ballgame literally as a homer was being served up.
"I pride myself and think of myself as a man of faith. I don't know if I'm going to be putting on this headset again," Brennaman said after the incident.
Jim Day handled the play-by-play announcing job for the rest of the game.
