Bill Walton, Doris Burke and Dave Pasch did commentary for last night’s Warriors-Blazers game. It was in honor of Oregon’s 159th birthday, Walton said. And it was a blast.
Sacramento rookie De’Aaron Fox had an absolutely wonderful put-back slam to win the game for the Kings tonight in Miami.
Thirty-seven years after he first began calling Huskies games, Washington radio announcer Bob Rondeau signed off from his final broadcast in a characteristically low-key fashion.
If there’s been anything wrong with the Dodgers’ otherwise near-flawless season so far, it’s only that Vin Scully hasn’t been in the booth to call it. While the legendary announcer is hopefully enjoying his long-deserved retirement, the crowd at Dodger Stadium was understandably thrilled to see him back for a pre-game…
Colombian soccer announcer Javier Fernández is the world’s greatest sports broadcaster. Here’s James knocking in a penalty rebound for his side’s only goal in Colombia’s win over Bolivia today, as called by “El Cantante del Gol” and complete with the traditional heavy metal goal music.
Former ESPN broadcaster and over-under aficionado Brent Musburger now has his own radio show for the Vegas Stats & Information Network called “My Guys In The Desert.” The Washington Post’s Adam Kilgore visited him in Las Vegas for a profile, which revealed the depths of his love for gambling, and how he went and lived…
Have you ever counted your chickens? Before they hatched??? Repent.
It was a fun night in the sports announcing world.
The Portland Hale Blazers are playing their only game of the year in Chicago tonight, so the odd mistake of nomenclature is forgivable. Meyers Leonard was misidentified as “Miles” (perhaps it was “Myles?”) tonight and he loudly offered a correction.
Zut alors! Le dinger!!!
Look, “Antetokounmpo” has a lot of letters in it. A-N-T-E-T-O-K-O-U-N-M-P-O. Not the easiest name to pronounce! That, however, is nowhere close to whatever Stacey King said here.
The Marlins are playing their first game since José Fernández died in a boating crash over the weekend, and it’s been an incredibly emotional affair. The whole team is wearing Fernández’s number 16 jersey and both teams paid tribute to him before the game. Dee Gordon’s leadoff dinger provided an incredible moment of…
The Dodgers recognized Vin Scully’s 67 seasons as an announcer with a lengthy pre-game ceremony tonight—one that featured Sandy Koufax and Kevin Costner, among others—capped off by the man himself sharing some golden words with the gathered crowd:
If you’ve ever been curious about the proper vocalization of “!!!!!!!!!,” this Icelandic announcer is here to enlighten you with his call of the home team’s historic Euro 2016 win against Austria:
The Twins lost the first nine games of the regular season, then won four in a row, and finally lost again today to the Brewers. Their scoring has (obviously) increased greatly during their run of newfound competence, and their rookie first baseman Byung-ho Park has been at the center of it all. He’s hit three dongers…
The Mariners stopped their five-game skid in the most emphatic way possible: by walking off the winners after a big ole’ dinger in the tenth inning against a division rival. You can watch the official MLB version of Dae-Ho Lee’s home run against the Rangers if you want, but we recommend these Korean broadcasters…
The Steelers extended their lead over Cincinnati with William Gay’s fumble recovery (until they didn’t, after replay revealed the officials missed a down by contact) and the Steelers’ celebration drew a flag (which the official whiffed on trying to throw) and Jim Nantz declared it a touchdown (for the Bengals). Oh,…
We love Álvaro Martín and Raúl Allegre’s Monday Night Football announcing on ESPN Deportes, and the value of watching football en Español was no more apparent than on the failed Denver Broncos field goal attempt at the end of regulation tonight. ¡NOOOOOOOO!
