Bob Costas Takes Bathroom Break During Baseball Game Broadcast

Hey, when you gotta go... you gotta go!

While broadcasting the Seattle Mariners-New York Yankees game on MLB TV Tuesday night, play-by-play man Bob Costas suddenly turned the lead role over to analyst John Smoltz.

Not long afterward, Costas returned and said it’s the “age of candor,” so he quickly admitted:

"Between innings, I headed to the men's room. Nothing but broadcasters. Three Yankee broadcasters, three Mariner broadcasters. All queued up. All queued up between innings. What's a guy to do?"

Costas, of course, is known for speaking his mind.

In December 2012, the announcer responded to the suicide of Jevon Belcher by pushing for gun control; aout a year later, he labeled the name Redskins an insult and a slur.
