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]

I’ll be watching, will you?
