How Jack Buck Helped Saved A Life

There are kids entering high school this fall that have never heard Jack Buck call a baseball game live. One of the Cardinals greats, Mr. Buck passed away in 2002 (!), but that isn’t stopping new stories about the man to surface.

This MLB Network Postseason ad is awesome

We’re only a week and a half from the beginning of the 2015 MLB Postseason. MLB Network created this phenomenal ad to hype the Postseason, blending 17 calls of iconic Postseason home runs into this one video. I think my favorite part of this is the way MLBN combined the “we’ll see you tomorrow night” calls of Jack Buck in 1991 and Joe Buck in 2011. Perfectly done. The post...

Cardinal Nation: Think Twice Before You Hate on Joe Buck

Although there are many fans who aren’t aware of it, Joe Buck is often an extremely polarizing figure within Cardinal Nation. Some of the most intense STL Cardinals arguments healthy discussions I’ve partaken in have revolved around Mr. Buck, and how he’s perceived both locally and nationally. For the record, before I go any further, I don’t care if you hate the man or not...

Cardinals: Remembering Jack Buck

I’d never seen the press box at old Busch Stadium so quiet. Something was wrong. I was working on the Manual Scoreboard on June 18th, 2002, the day the music died for St. Louis Cardinals radio. Jack Buck passed away and the usually raucous press box was chillingly silent in the middle of a game. I took a seat and thought about the last time I remembered interacting with Buck. Living...

How Jack Buck Saved America

When terrorists struck America of September 11th, 2001, the whole nation was sent in a shock. It was surreal, it was as though life had stopped. America froze, but for brief moment of grief. For the first time since the JFK assassination, the nation was held in disbelief. Businesses were closed, people were seeking refuge in anything they could. It was so sudden and shocking that...

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Joe Buck

Six years ago the Giants and Patriots played one of the most dramatic championship games in recent professional sports history in Super Bowl XLII.  The defining play of the game may have been the most exciting play ever seen in the Super Bowl - David Tyree's helmet catch. For those watching on television, the description of the play from Fox announcer Joe Buck didn't quite capture...

After An Incredible Run, Let’s Applaud Auburn And Our Conference

Despite the (Twitter) jokes we may have made in Auburn's direction after ending the SEC's BCS National Championship run, really we're going to quote Jack Buck, when we say: "Excuse us while we stand up applaud". Auburn was a 10.5 point underdog with Vegas. No-one - apart from those bleeding blue and orange (and some members of the media) who believed in Destiny - really believed...
