It's the ultimate frustrating moment: you wait and wait and wait for something to happen and then, when it does, you miss it.
The news anchors on a morning show at Chicago's WGN certainly let out their (tongue-in-cheek) sadness and near-rage when a bridge that they had been training a camera on for minutes imploded the second they cut away from it. In fact, they nearly had a comic meltdown, banging their fists on the table, yelling, throwing and even eating the papers on their desks.
The screw-up, one of the anchors joked, was "a metaphor for our show: another crash and burn."
