A possum has taken over the Oakland Coliseum visiting TV booth, cementing the stadium as America’s Worst Ballpark
Wow. What a world we live in. In a surreal turn of events, a possum has taken over the visiting TV booth in the Oakland Coliseum. This information was relayed by SNY broadcasters during a matchup between the Mets and Athletics, who were ushered away from the booth by A’s staff before they could enter the creature’s new home.
This possum appeared in the Oakland Coliseum on Opening Day and has since banished visiting broadcasters to a different booth:
What the hell is going on in Oakland? I know the Coliseum is famously the worst stadium in baseball, but this is almost unbelievable.
What’s even more unbelievable is that this has happened twice within the past few years. Instead of taking over the TV booth, however, it was the press box. Good lord, what a nightmare.
Also, you have to feel bad for the camera guy. He’s riding solo in the jankiest TV booth in baseball with a possum on the loose. Even worse, he’s trespassing on what that animal deems to be its property. That’s a dangerous game to play.
And while we’re at it, that booth looks bombed out. It’s closer to a camping spot in Call of Duty than the visiting broadcast booth for a modern American sports franchise.
Interestingly enough, possums aren’t the only critters that have turned the Oakland Coliseum into an episode of Mutal of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom over the years. As you may remember, a colony of feral cats
Stories like this make me feel even luckier to be a Philadelphia fan than I already do. Big Johnny would never let CBP fall into the hands of various rodents, although there will inevitably be some rats in the building when the Mets come to town.

That is so funny that there are opossums at the stadium and in the booth. First How did they get in? Second is anybody taking care of this issue? Feel free to take a look at my blog: https://sophiakd4.wordpress.com
