Default Favorite Sports Call

Okay, here's the game: What is your favorite (or two) call(s) during a game? By "call" I mean commentary/play-by-play. Not your favorite play. Any sport.

I am torn between two that will always give me goosebumps. I'm sorry to say that niether is from a Steelers game....and they are both by Joe Buck (sorry):

1st: 1996 World Series - Game 4: 8th inning - Jim Leyritz hits a 3 run homer:

Buck: "Back..at the track..., at the wall, WE ARE TIED!"




2nd: Super Bowl XLII - Game Winning Catch by Burress w/ 38 seconds left (?):

Buck: "Manning..., Lobs it. Burress alone..., TOUCHDOWN GIANTS!"




Whatcha got?

One of my favorites from the great Larry Munson, but I'm a big UGA homer.

"Buck back. Third down on the 8. In trouble. Got a block behind him. Going to throw on the run. Complete to the 25, to the 30. Lindsay Scott 35, 40. Lindsay Scott 45, 50, 45, 40. Run Lindsay! Twenty-five, 20, 15, 10, 5. Lindsay Scott! Lindsay Scott! Lindsay Scott! ... Well, I can't believe it. 92 yards and Lindsay really got in a footrace, I broke my chair, I came right through a chair, a metal STEEL chair with about a five inch cushion ... Do you know what is gonna happen here tonight? And up at St. Simons and Jekyll Island and all those places where all those Dawg people have got those condominiums for four days? MAN, is there gonna be some property destroyed tonight! 26 to 21, Dawgs on top! We were gone. I gave up, you did too. We were out of it and gone. Miracle!" - calling wide receiver Lindsay Scott's 92-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Buck Belue against Florida in 1980.
"Hunker down, you guys! If you didn't hear me, you guys, hunker down!...I know I'm asking a lot, you guys, but hunker it down one more time!" - in a defensive series late in the game against Auburn in 1982, which clinched the SEC title for Georgia.

Well as I am only 22, I haven't been around for some of the great calls of all time.

But the one that sticks out in my mind just recently is the 4X100 freestyle swimming relay team winning gold in the Olympics. When Lezak won by a finger tip to pass the Frenchman Alain Bernard. I'm not really sure who called the actual footage.

Video -- Terrible quality but you get the call.

Speaking of the SEC, how about the Bluegrass Miracle?

"CAUGHT! CAUGHT! JACK HUNT!" (Jack Hunt was a white defensive back who wore #8....the pass was actually caught by #9, Devery Henderson. LSU removed the Jack Hunt reference from its archived version of the call.)
