Worst Opening Night Ever

Kid's first night anchoring local news in North Dakota doesn't go so well.  His first words, as shows opens and he's about to be introduced: "Fuckin' shit."  He had just admitted on Twitter that he was nervous, and later noted things didn't too well.  A little while ago he was suspended by the NBC affiliate.  Deadspin has video and update.  Or watch below.   Station went on air and apologized.   But already there's a Reinstate Him page on Facebook.   UPDATE  A.J. Clemente just tweeted, "Unfortunately KFYR-TV has decided to let me go. Thank you to them and everyone in ND for the opportunity and everyone for the support."  Adds:  "Rookie mistake. I'm a free agent.Cant help but laugh at myself and stay positive. Wish i didnt trip over my 'Freaking Shoes' out of the gate."

"Worst opening night ever"? The opening night of "The Ring" cycle run this spring at the Metropolitan Opera did not go well. The heavy stage machinery malfunctioned during "Das Rheingold" Also, a week later, the tenor singing Siegmund in "Die Walkuere" lost his voice in the middle of the first act, just before he's supposed to pull the sword out of the tree growing in Hunding's living room, so he walked offstage and his understudy walked in as if nothing had happened. And people say "MacBethy" is jinxed.
