Dick Enberg Honored With the Ford C. Frick Award

It probably won’t happen this way, but when Dick Enberg is introduced at the Hall of Fame as the 39th winner of the Ford C. Frick Award, the deejay should replay Curt Gowdy’s opening line from the baseball portion of “The Naked Gun”: “Hello! l’m Curt Gowdy, along with Jim Palmer, Tim McCarver, Dick Vitale, […]

Dick Enberg terribly blows call on triple off the wall

Dick Enberg is a broadcasting legend, and his work as San Diego Padres play by play commentator has largely been great, and refreshing in a world where tired cliches and silly gimmicks have become the norm. But on Monday night in Colorado, Enberg terribly botched this call on a Chase Headley triple, thinking it was a home run. Call of the decade by Enberg. #Padres

Video: Mark Grant dancebombs Dick Enberg

I was tempted to title this “Mark Grant dances behind Dick Enberg AND YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!” but that would have just been obnoxious, wouldn’t it?

The Phillie Phanatic stars in "What's the Phanatic say?"

The Phillie Phanatic is one of our favorites here at AA, and the clip of him harassing Dick Enberg and Mark Grant from September was a riot. But this clip is a little different - the Phillies produced a "What Does the Fox Say" parody video starring the Phanatic. It's nowhere near as fantastic as the video put together by the Mavericks in October, but if you're a mascot lover, this...
