Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman drops phone out of booth, retrieves it with duct-taped pole contraption

Whether we like it or not, cell phones are crucial to living. We Instagram with them. We tweet with them. We deny friend requests and we poke old college flames. We receive calls, and then we ignore calls.

Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman knows these things, so when he dropped his phone out of the booth during Thursday's Angels-Reds game, he knew he must get it back any way possible. I personally would've loved to see Brennaman lowered down via a wheel/rope pulley system, but maybe that's best kept for The Sandlot.
