When I think of Bob Uecker, I think of Harry Doyle. When Brewers (and most baseball) fans think of Bob Uecker, they think one of baseball's best announcers. They're not wrong -- he's brilliant -- but 'Major League' introduced me to Uecker and, thus, to me he'll forever be the guy who once inquired, "That's all we got? One goddamn hit?"
But in real life he's always been a legendary announcer for the Brewers (and WWF and Miller Lite commercials) and thanks to The Outside Corner, we have his awesome call of Nyjer Morgan's one goddamn game-winning hit that propelled the Brewers into the NLCS (no Nyjer Morgan f-bombs included, unfortunately):Bob Ueckers call of Nyjer Morgans winning hit (mp3)
Monty, anything to add? ... He's not the best color man in the league for nothing, folks!
First of all, it's awesome to see my alma mater on AA.
Even with my Hampton Pirate bias, I don't think it's a TD. But I only say that based on Megatron's non-TD last year. They were both TDs actually, except for that stupid "going to ground" rule.
Maybe we should get Clapp a profile on match.com or something. There is more to life than Thursday Night games on ESPN U.
And this is why Mike Morgan is doing I-AA HBCU games on ESPNU and not Big Ten games on ABC.
Was the Bill Belichick documentary over already? Was there a baseball game on MLB Network? Were there WNBA... ha ha, okay I'll shut up now.
Also, your transcription of the first TD with all the caps makes Mike Morgan sound like Gus Johnson. When you watch the video... not so much.
I watched all of that actually... minus the WNBA action(sorry to disappoint). Can see my thoughts on all of it on my Twitter account: @sharapovasthigh
In all seriousness, I saw many people talking about this game on my Twitter timeline late in the 4th quarter(I lied in the post; I certainly was not alone in viewing this game). I tuned in right when all of the above action went down. I have to say that the 5 minutes I saw of that game beat the living shit out of the entire Cincy/NC State game. And that's without taking Craig James' commentary into account.
