So, wait, what just happened?

We were all sitting, watching Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night when, quite suddenly, the game disappeared. That was unexpected. And not good for the millions of people glued to the TV across the country.

Here’s how it went down the first time:

According to reports, FOX lost power to its truck during the Series after returning from commercial in the bottom of the fourth inning. The New York Mets and Kansas City Royals were tied 1-1 at the time. In other words, it wasn’t a good time to cut out.

Play on the field was temporarily suspended while the problem was remedied and the FOX broadcast switched to an in-studio report that vaguely analyzed the first few innings of the matchup.

When the game came back up, viewers in the United States were switched over to the international feed once play resumed.

Naturally, Twitter had a field day with the moment. Check out some of the best right here:

And perhaps the best one of all:

Poor Alex Rodriguez, he’s just trying to analyze baseball games and look snappy in his suits.

The broadcast hit one more snag before seeming finding its power source again. Fingers crossed
