Not my favorite crew, but there are worse.

If it was up to me Nessler and Mayock would broadcast all our games.

How about Joe Buck Sr. a long time tv announcer and considered one of the very best.

Jack... his name was Jack Buck.



Jesus, does anyone read my posts or am I utterly wasting my time on this site?.......... this is from page 1 of this thread:

Who is Bucks dad?

Jack Buck, longtime voice of the St. Louis Cardinals (baseball) and also did NFL for I believe CBS in the 70s and maybe 80s. He also did World Series games and his call of Kirk Gibson's HR in the '88 Series is iconic. "....This is gonna be a home run. Unbelivable!!"



Christ it's like talking to air. :roll: :roll: :roll:
5500 posts in (and plenty of them were good posts btw) and this kind of thing makes it seem kinda pointless. Must be time to reevaluate participation.







Here's the famous call I was referring to (for the one or two people that might actually be reading one of my posts):




I think they were talking about Jim Buck. He was famous in the 60s or something. IIRC, he did that one famous bowling match.

Oh I'm sorry... we're you saying something?

:sarcasm_off:

Yeah, but they're thinking of his uncle Jerry. Not his dad. His dad was that guy on the fishing channel I think. Jerry was more famous for his call of the 1982 World Series in which the Hanshin Tigers somehow made it to the World Series game and lost against the Brooklyn Dodgers. It was one of the most famous MLB games of all time. Very memorable for me personally.

Troy Aikman's hands do all the talking for him.

Little known fact: Troy Aikman was Heath Ledger's understudy during the filming of Brokeback Mountain. True story.

Yeah, I love that call... looked it up just for this topic but you beat me to it. What I don't understand is why so many sources cut the call off before it's done. It's a little thing, but the repetition of, "I don't believe what I just saw" with the subtle change of inflection is what makes it so awesome. Listen here, if you're of a mind: http://www.hark.com/clips/kysprpbklw-ja ... s-home-run

Oh, and on topic:

Jack Buck = ear candy from heaven
Joe Buck = physical pain and a legitimate reason not to watch baseball on the teevee

Um... yeah. But in 1982 the rules were more like traditional NBA.

Anyway, all I know is, Jerry Buck was amazing in that game. I'm pretty stoked that he'll be calling the Seahawks game Sunday. We're going to need some luck. And dammit, Pete Carroll HAS to start wearing some sunglasses. His tell is so obvious.
