What is Wrong With Matt Vasgersian?

Thanks to the sheer idiocy that is Matt Vasgersian, today is one of those wonderful days when I don't even have to think of an idea.
Mr. Vasgersian, in case you aren't familiar, is a television personality, currently of the MLB Network and formerly a Padres' play-by-play guy. Also, he is, quite possibly, the greatest living example we have of just how stupid you can be and still make a solid living in the media.
Now, to be fair, when I go to Busch Stadium, I occasionally think the same thing about a few of the denizens, but I also don't spout that off on broadcast television. Anyhow, since joining the MLB Network, ol' Matty has had a couple of really memorable moments, including the first F-bomb in the network's history:
And, on Monday night, one of the funniest things you'll ever see. After Brad Hawpe of the Colorado Rockies was hit in the head, EMT's were summoned to the field as a precautionary measure. Upon seeing this video back in the MLB studios, Vasgersian actually had the tape run back so he could make a joke about one of the black EMTs. Let's watch, shall we?
