Best of BSG
What would it look like if my dream lineup of sportscasters all covered same game, same place for same network dissecting a small story…together?
Hilarious! Especially Peter Gammons. But, you have to put do a Tim McCarver and Joe Buck,
TC: That’s the best swing from a rookie 2nd baseman in the National League that happens to be a Cub that I’ve seen all season.
JB: And you’ve got to wonder just when the Yankees will swoop in and buy Barney’s soul outright.
watched the video on barstool a few hours ago and laughed out loud about 6 times, almost spitting coffee on the computer a couple times.
saw it on deadspin 15 minutes ago and figured to myself, ‘maybe it wasn’t as funny as i thought’, i’ll have to watch it again. laughed hard throughout, again. (knew better than to drink and watch this time)
figured i’d come to your site directly and give you the ‘click’. this thing was hilarious man. best internet video i’ve seen in a long time. absolutely outstanding.
the finer points: rosenthal is maybe my top ten hated announcer/broadcasters (in real life). the slow delivery of material that is already common sense. you nailed him. i’d watch a 10 minute video of you doing him again (though I’d want to stab myself afterward).
the hair on pedro gomez: classic. “rooted through his recyclables for a month”! even as i type that line out, i laugh again.
buster olney’s sources and the Kirkjian voice crackle. My god.
If I’m allowed to make requests, how about another vid with some of the following goofballs: Joe Buck, McCarver (interweaving the importance of how the Infield Fly Rule protects the runners), Joe Morgan (at least one “when Pete Rose and ‘our’ Big Red Machine”), Vin Scully (“not many people may knooow this, but Charlie IS the 12th of the 14 Manuel children, all but 4 whom helped out on the family farm as a youth, and while just 3 of the last 5 finished middle school, it was OOONLY 1 of THOOOSE 3, and 6 of the 10 that were on the farm that WERE involved in the family’s successful dot com venture.”)
Either way….great work…you the man!
That was sensational. He’s got Pedro Gomez’ voice DOWN!
