Riggo's MASN trailer


If you watch Nats games on MASN or MASN2, you've likely already seen the trailer for The John Riggins Show, which will launch on MASN this Thursday from 4-6:30 p.m. If you haven't, here it is. It's worth a watch just for the vintage Riggo clips that show up about halfway through, and which you'll watch at least twice if you've never seen this before.

The weird part, of course, is the purple seats in the background while Riggins is talking. Yes, this spot was filmed in Baltimore. No, you probably don't associate John Riggins with that particular color.

"Since MASN is a two-team, two-town Regional Sports Network, we strive to embrace and to celebrate the best of both cities," a MASN spokesman explained.

Either way, it's a bloody great spot.

I've never thought it personally, but filming at the Ravens stadium will certainly add fuel to the fire to those who believe MASN is a Baltimore-centric station. Why couldn't they have filmed this inside RFK, when DC United is off or on the road?

Hey Dan, any update on MASN2 HD coming to FIOS?

When it comes to TV and radio, the idea of Riggo has always been much better than the reality of Riggo. Great in small doses or with a sound bite. Anything else? Not so much.

there's no one better than Riggo.

I think the setting has something to do with the "Dark heart" comment. "The Raven"(s) stadium - Poe - the Tell Tale Heart.

I only watched the clip; did not listen to it, so maybe that is more obvious with the language used. Or, maybe not.

Yeah, RFK would have been a much better choice than the Raven's stadium.

They are a Baltimur-centric station, so I was glad to see a Skins show on angelos tv.

The reaction here in Charm city is anger.
