Boomer Esiason and his colleagues tried to run through their usual CBS halftime show this afternoon. Unfortunately, they were drowned out by a Walker Hayes concert.
Hayes, a country music artist, was the halftime performer at Arrowhead Stadium this afternoon. Unfortunately, the CBS studio crew, which is on-site for the game, was placed right next to speakers that were broadcasting Hayes' music.
The noise overwhelmed the panelists, and a chuckling Esiason went viral as it all unfolded.
"I have no idea what you just said," he told Nate Burleson while laughing.
That looks and sounds like a producer's nightmare. Boomer's lightheartedness helped ease the awkwardness of the situation though.
This is the final NFL broadcast for CBS this year, as FOX will do the NFC Championship Game, ABC/ESPN has the Pro Bowl and NBC has the Super Bowl rights.
You can bet when CBS next has its studio team on the field during a game next fall, they will be better prepared than they were today.
