Joe Buck’s dry, monotone style irks many sports fans, but his game-ending call Thursday night – “We … will … see you … tomorrow night!” seemed perfect for the moment. It’s also the exact same call his father made on a Kirby Puckett walk-off homer that ended game six in the 1991 World Series. Like Freese’s homer, Puckett’s also came in the 11th inning. Two walk-off homers, both in game six, both in the 11th inning, twenty years apart, both called by the Buck family. Goosebumps. [H/T @JimmyTraina]
He was either unaware or very aware of the interview taking place in front of him.
We’ve all been there…
Happy 4/20 from Holland.
He almost broke it first.
And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
