Found June 07, 2013 on Awful Announcing:
PLAYERS: Adam Dunn
TEAMS: Chicago White Sox
After one of his patented moments of silence for an opposition home run earlier this week, we were treated to another classic example of Hawk Harrelson homerism.  Thursday night the White Sox hosted the A's and went to extras once again.  Down 5-4 in the bottom of the 10th and down to their final out, Adam Dunn stepped up to the plate with a man on and hit a ball high and deep to left field that fell at the warning track for the final out of the game like something out of Major League.  Just listen to Hawk's call... Ah, there's nothing like hearing Hawk Harrelson yell out "daaaaad gum it!" like a grizzled 1890s prospector. I know why this ball didn't make it out for the tying home run - Hawk didn't ask for it to STRETCH.  I'm sure if Harrelson would have pleaded just a little bit more, that ball would have found enough juice to fly over the fence.  This is a loss you can clearly blame on the White Sox play by play man.
