But the viral video didn’t come from a major television network or any official media outlet.
Insert Jimmy O’Brien, commonly known as “Jomboy,” who was the one-man show behind the enhanced audio that allowed everyone at home to have a front-row seat for Boone’s explicit tirade, caught by the YES Network’s cameras and microphones.
So, who is this Yankees Twitter sensation who has been filling every feed with such entertaining content?
O’Brien was born a Yankees fan despite moving frequently as a child because of his father’s job. He graduated from Central Connecticut State with a degree in history before landing a job as a videographer and video editor. He then attended film school in San Francisco before quitting his job as a wedding videographer in March 2018 to pursue establishing his own company, Jomboy Media.
