Sorry NOT SORRY, Tito and the Front Office, Serial, and a new Tradition: While We’re Waiting…

Not only have I never written a “While We’re Waiting…” before, but I haven’t much read them either.  This is likely (a) something I shouldn’t be admitting because (b) I have no reasonable excuse.  In the olden days, when WWW was just a collection of links, I felt fairly justified in my parsimonious clicking.  After all, by the time it came out each morning I’d...

Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants Set Game 6

After a 162-game season, a Wild Card Game, a Division Series round, a League Championship round and five games of the World Series, the teams will square off in Kansas City for Game 6. Game 6. Those two words, when discussing the World Series, send shivers down the spines of...

What Game 6 History Will Be Made Tonight?

A classic World Series is usually defined by seven games, but that can’t be without a Game 6. One way or another, it ends after Game 7. Gone is the sense of urgency, of desperation, of finality, by the team trailing entering Game 6. The feeling the game could turn on any play hangs like a cloud over the trailing team. FISK: Best game ever? Many of baseball’s most dramatic moments...

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...

Juuuuust A Bit Outside – Royals Broadcasters

As the weather turns warmer, one of the greatest traditions across the country is to sit on your porch or your deck with a radio and listen to the baseball game as the fireflies flicker and the cicada’s siren blares. Baseball broadcasters are a part of the fabric of summer. Because of that, we all have a passion for those that fill our ears as they describe the action of our ball...

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...

Ozzie and Gibson discuss their most memorable games

Wednesday night, during MLB Network’s MLB Tonight show, two clips were shown as teasers for upcoming episodes of a new series called My Most Memorable Game. It left me wanting more. In the shows, MLB Hall of Famers (or in one case, future Hall of Famer) share with hosts Bob Costas and Tom Verducci their recollections of the most unforgettable game of their respective careers. The...

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...

Top 10 Metrodome moments in Twins history

For 28 years, the Minnesota Twins called the Metrodome their home. There were certainly some drawbacks to playing in such a sterile environment with artificial turf and a Teflon roof, but the Twins had some very memorable moments during those years. Soon, the site of those memories will be gone as the Metrodome is scheduled to be demolished next month. In anticipation of the Dome...

Ron Burgundy reminisces on Vin "Mad Dog" Scully

Burgundy is Back, America! And he is on the campaign trail right now hosting ESPN, interviewing Peyton Manning, and setting down with Dan Patrick to re-create some of the greatest calls in sports history. But the most compelling and rich portion of Ron's time with Dan, was when he reminisced about his time in Tijuana with The Vocie himself, Vin "Mad Dog" Scully - at least...
