Fox Sports announcer Joe Buck will call tonight’s MLB All-Star game in Miami, although his pre-game topic of discussion was all about getting way too high from edibles.

Buck joined ESPN’s “Dan Le Batard Show” on Monday to discuss the All-Star festivities, but ended up sharing a story about a 2011 trip to Cabo San Lucas that went horribly awry after eating too many pot brownies.

“I go down to Cabo to a place I have down there to try to relax, and I show up thinking that I’m going to do yoga every day, I’m going to read two books, I’m not going to drink, I’m going to do nothing,” said Buck. “I’m just going to heal myself because I have this paralyzed vocal cord, and my career is over.”

Unable to properly relax, however, Buck then decided to try marijuana edibles after a lifetime of staying away from pot.

“So I had a brownie and a half, and then we all got in a car — not driving — we were driven down to this bar in Cabo. And as I’m riding down there, I’m trying to text somebody, and the letters start flying off my phone into my face, and I’m like, ‘Oh, this is not gonna be good,’” explains Buck after the 2:05 mark in the video.

Things then took a turn for the worst after Buck arrived at the bar:

“I pass out onto the ground, go under a rope with my head hanging off into the marina. I damn near died. I had a dream while I was down there. I popped up, and I went from completely out of it to completely sober, worrying that within the next four minutes, it was going to pop up on Deadspin that I just went down at a bar in Cabo.”

Fortunately, Buck will be completely sober for tonight’s midsummer classic.
