In the fourth inning of the World Series, FOX, which has broadcast numerous World Series, Super Bowls and other major sporting events and should have good experience at this, lost the feed to the World Series. The delay held up the game for several minutes, with FOX experiencing difficulties in getting their broadcast feed back on the air, eventually using MLB Network's broadcast feed. The internet had a field day.

MLB Network's International broadcast is going to take over on Fox until their truck resumes functioning.— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) October 28, 2015
Wonder how many more networks would have to go down for the Bob Uecker broadcast to be next in the line of succession— Ben Lindbergh (@BenLindbergh) October 28, 2015

It gets better, folks: we're told that FOX still doesn't know what happened to its feed. #WorldSeries— Jeff Rosen (@jeff_rosen88) October 28, 2015
FOX HOST: We go now to a Periscope feed being filmed from left field by a guy named Carl. Carl, you there? CARL: This is friggin awesome!— Danger Guerrero (@DangerGuerrero) October 28, 2015
Eventually, order was restored.
