Jimmy Conrad - making a promo...

Most people that know anything about Jimmy Conrad knows that he can be a bit of a comedian at times (understatement warning). He can say and do some strange, odd things to get a laugh. He can also be serious when needed, just look at his intensity on the field. Wednesday after practice Jimmy needed to film some promo ads for the upcoming game on April 23rd. That is Jimmy Conrad bobble head night. Well Jimmy is a natural in front of a camera or microphone and can normally just run on and talk with ease, both entertaining and informing. I’m starting to sound like I am in Jimmy’s PR department but it is the truth.

So Jimmy starts reading the prepared script and makes a minor flub. Time to start over, and again, and again...


By now he is being harassed by Zavagnin, making it even tougher to get through the prepared script. (Talk to me little Jimmy...)



Herculez Gomez , who is waiting on Jimmy to finish so he can shoot his spot joins in to distract Conrad. He starts using the Metro Sports crew as a wall to shoot over and around. (No cameras or Metro Sports personnel were injured in the making of this blog)


Gomez then moves on to distract Conrad up close.



Metro Sports gets bored and start taking PK’s…


Eventually Jimmy says something so funny he can not believe it himself…


And Sean from MLSnet and Kyle (Hillcrestroad) totally lose it…


Jimmy regains his composure...


After throwing off everyone distracting him by making them laugh, Jimmy quickly regained his composure and finished it off like the media pro that he is. Next up was the Metro Sports interview with “Little Jimmy”…



Jimmy's listens to his little voice?


I think this is my new favorite shot of Jimmy...



You can follow through the whole progression in this gallery.
