After watching last night's 7-2 tromping of the Devil Rays, all throughout the broadcast I was wondering "Who is that douchebag yelling in the background?". I knew it was a heckler, but it was constant, annoying, and irritating. To my surprise, is was the "Happy Heckler", otherwise known as Rob Szasz.
Since the D-Rays starting stinking up St. Petersburg, he has been there for every home game. He sits behind home plate, and heckles opponents endlessly. Now, I'm all for throwing players off their game, but this guy is an annoying douche. If I could hear him all throughout the Jays broadcast, it must've been 100 times worse in person.
You may think I hate him so much because it's a heckler that makes fun of the Jays. The truth is, even if the guy was heckling everyone BUT Jays players, I'd still be annoyed. I don't go to ballgames to listen to fat men bark at baseball players all afternoon.
But, I guess that's all Tampa Bay players have to look forward to - their heckler getting more press than the actual team. OH SNAP!
