Watching video games off a monitor makes issues exceptionally robust for broadcasters. Exhibit 34,459,05: Wednesday evening’s Aaron Choose residence run, which Sterling by chance referred to as a house run later within the recreation once more after seeing a replay:

The hilarious — and barely upsetting — change between the 2:

Waldman: “Hm.”

Sterling: “I am sorry, it was on the monitor. What am I alleged to do?”
