(WSCR) It’s been a pretty rough week for ESPN analyst Rick Reilly.

Reilly takes special pride in his Twitter account – that’s why he asked begged ESPN’s Stuart Scott to announce on Monday Night Football that he was the first to “break” Ben Roethlisberger’s injury on Twitter. Little did Reilly know his pathetic request was caught on camera and broadcast for America to see.

Reilly is also known for telling terrible jokes on Twitter. Accordingly, a radio station in Boston had one of its producer use Reilly’s jokes, word for word, under a fake name at a local comedy club to see the type of reaction they’d get.

It did not go well.

Check out the performance here.
