Dave Pasch is announcing the Arizona Cardinals game from State Farm Stadium while trying to ignore anything that takes place outside his press box window.

It’s yet another “only-in-2020” situation in sports.

The Cardinals are playing the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium, which is airing on the TV in Pasch’s press box. At State Farm Stadium, the San Francisco 49ers are preparing to play against the Washington Football Team.

Pasch tweeted a video of his setup.

It’s still not as distracting as Bill Walton.

The 49ers moved their home base to Arizona after Santa Clara County officials issued directives that banned contact sports and instituted a two-week quarantine for people who traveled from at least 150 miles away.

San Francisco “hosted” its Week 13 opponent, the Buffalo Bills, at State Farm Stadium last week and will do the same against Washington on Sunday afternoon.

Luckily for Pasch, the 49ers’ Week 14 game doesn’t kick off until 2:25 p.m., so he can focus on that TV set up in his press box showing the hometown team instead of the field below.

Listen live to Pasch and the Cardinals at 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
