TEAMS: Brooklyn Nets

Brooklyn Nets play by play man and NFL on CBS announcer Ian Eagle was able to pull off quite the impressive double dip during Friday's Nets-Pistons game in Brooklyn  Joe Johnson hit a buzzer beating three with the game tied at the end of the second overtime for a 108-105 victory.  Not only did Eagle give a solid call of the game-winner, he also paid homage to comedian Jerry Seinfeld, who was sitting at courtside. Although he may not have a widespread reputation as a funny man, Eagle's sense of humor is sneaky good.  His call of "That was real and that was spectacular" is a fitting tribute to both Johnson's buzzer beater and this famous Seinfeld clip.
