The Return Of Randy!

Wednesday, December 09, 2009

Every six months or so, these Randy Moller videos turn up on Youtube and in turn make me extremely happy for the rest of the day. 790 The Ticket has put together another collection of the Panthers' play-by-play man's greatest hits, so grab some popcorn and enjoy!



My top three:

3. "Mike Bibby be floppin'."
2. "Homey Don't Play That."
1. "Beyonce had one of the greatest music videos of all time!"

The Mariners Announcers Have To Get Happy About Something

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

The Mariners were actually in the Wild Card race at one point this season, but faded like a falling rock in the fourth quarter of the season. Which is why, Seattle's announcers Dave Niehaus and Mike Blowers decided to have some fun on Sunday. Not only did Blowers pick of Matt Tuiasosopo as player of the game pan out, but he even predicted the at-bat, count, pitch, and location of his first major league homer....



Now that is just unbelievable. The way they're giggling makes you think could be fake, but I think the reaction as the ball goes out gives it credibility. Too funny.

Randy Moller Is Back

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

It's round two of the Randy Moller Experiment over at the Dan Le Batard Show, and I couldn't be more pleased. We need something like this to get us going on a blah Tuesday, right? Right! So get your popcorn ready, sit back, and enjoy....RME 2.0!

(Oh and please make sure you listen around the :30 mark for what could be the best call in the history of Sports)



Bonerama!? Are you kidding me??? And Meatloaf too? This is just too much. I have to go lay down.

ESPN's "Greatest Game Ever Played" Getting Great Reviews

Friday, December 12, 2008


ESPN has been in the film game for awhile now, but after a few failed attempts at creating original flicks, they've moved onto documentaries. While their originals were poorly thought out, and often very cheesy (see: 3), their docs have struck a chord more often than not.

Their latest effort is a colorization and look into the 1958 NFL Championship Game appears to be another step in the right direction, and after viewing this extended preview....I think you'd agree.



Sure it's hosted by Chris Berman, but I'm a sucker for a good documentary, and this one looks like a winner. It airs tomorrow night at 9pm, if you want to check it out. Here are some more details....
Hosted by Chris Berman, The Greatest Game Ever Played explores the most important game in NFL history to commemorate its 50th anniversary. ESPN Films has created an unprecedented look at this landmark event, which featured 17 Hall of Famers and the only NFL championship to be decided in overtime. The presentation will include new colorization/restoration technology and previously unseen footage of the game.

Additionally, to give viewers perspective about the impact of the 1958 NFL Championship Game on players then and now, ESPN Films brought together 11 surviving members of the legendary game and their modern day NFL counterparts from the past two Super Bowl champion teams - the Indianapolis Colts and the New York Giants. Pairings include Baltimore Colts star receiver Raymond Berry with current Colts head coach Tony Dungy; former Giants kicker Pat Summerall with current Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri; Giants running back Frank Gifford and Colts defensive end Gino Marchetti with current Giants head coach Tom Coughlin; Colts great Lenny Moore with current Giants running back Brandon Jacobs; former Giants linemen Al Barry and Rosie Grier with current Giants lineman Chris Snee; and former Colts star Art Donovan with newly retired Giants star Michael Strahan, among others

John Mayer Is My New Favorite Announcer

Thursday, March 27, 2008

I was going to post this saying that this Anonymous guy is my new favorite announcer, but after a little sleuth work (I read the YouTube comments) I found out that it's musician John Mayer. He is in Japan for some reason, and this is the best call of an at-bat I've heard in quite awhile.....



"And that happened" is now my new favorite catchphrase. I will use it until it's no longer funny.

Audio Highlights From Mike And The Mad Dog's Call Of Georgetown-Villanova

Friday, March 14, 2008

I cannot thank reader Ben M. enough for sending me clip after clip from Mike and the Mad Dog's call of the Georgetown-Villanova game yesterday. This is by far the most hilarious collection of clips I have ever put together. Enjoy!



Just amazing. The trainwreck quotient before this game was probably set at a solid 8 out of 10, but they surpassed that a million times over. Good times.

My Personal Favorites:

"Another three by Wallace, that's his first" (Umm okay?)
"Villanova down by nine has the pumpkin" (I will not make fun of this one...Pumpkin is now the ball's official name)
"Always in the top of the country, Field Goals, defensive defense." (Pass)
"It's a 30, so we won't go anywhere. Thank you there my pal."
"Now this game is a 40-37 start." (I think that was in the 2nd half)
"That was offensive pass inter...offensive goal tending." (Pass)
"West Virginia to follow in the afternoon night cap." (Afternoon Night Cap?)
"Hibbert can't even believe it, he's shaking his heads." (He's like a Hydra really)
"Let's be honest this game's over. This isn't TV so we're not going to try and keep you watching." (Honesty is always the best policy)
"He's got Doc Rivers, John Thomspon Senior, and Ewing." (What?)

No Doug, We Didn't Hear You

Thursday, March 06, 2008

This is Doug Birdsong of Bison Sports Network. Doug seems pretty depressed as Navy goes up two in triple overtime and looks like they're going to pull a Patriot League win out. That will change soon enough....



BING! GO!!! Yep...still March.
