During a brief break in play the veteran broadcaster claimed the go-ahead run was at “fifth” and rambled on about a “botched robbery” and something about a “henchman.”. His microphone was cut off for a few moments. He then returned to finish the game.
On Tuesday Barnett spoke to 1080KRLD saying he suffered from a migraine and that he currently felt fine. Barnett would not be recorded but says he will see a doctor today and his status for tonight’s game is uncertain.
