Minutes after my critique of Fox was published, Fox spokesman Lou D'Ermilio responded to the message I left for him. He told me that Chevy did tape that crowd show with Red Sox fans days before and that Chevy gave them the tape to run.
He said that the conversation between the two players about the Taco Bell promotion was not rehearsed or set up by the network and McCarver's "shameless" reference might have been referring to the fact that the network chose to take that sound, not that they put the players up to it.
