After a button failed to work during an early morning broadcast on St. Louis' FOX 2, meteorologist Chris Higgins went on a mini-rant against the Cardinals' offense and hitting troubles and general lack of productivity in the decisive World Series game six. (Never mind that the loss was more a failure of mistimed execution than poor hitting—the Cards actually had more hits last night than the Red Sox.)
The rant from Higgins does beg an important series of questions:
What the fuck kind of set-up is Higgins working with here? Why does he have to push buttons to get the weather? Is this something exclusive to St. Louis? Are meteorologists' jobs dependent on pushing buttons anywhere else in the world? The show's producers have presumably seen Roker on Today—did they see that and then say, "No. We're going to make Higgins work for his forecast. Like a weather man Vanna White"? St. Louis is bizarre.
