I saw this tweet going around today and immediately got excited. This is inarguably one of the five best recurring types of tweets. Just something where everybody hops in and shares all their favorite sports memories. I love it.
And announcers have such an important role in shaping moments. There are certain calls all of us will always remember that are forever tied to some of our most cherished moments.
I immediately knew what my answer was, but I felt conflicted as to whether or not I could tweet it, since it's from a Tennessee-Georgia game and we're 48 hours removed from UGA handing us a fourth straight ass whooping. But Verne Lunquist's, "It's caught! It's caught!" after Jauan Jennings hauled in a Hail Mary to beat the Dawgs in Athens in 2016 will always get me. I'll never forget that moment.
And in terms of just the most memorable calls other than those from the teams I care about, I'm always partial to Joe Buck's, "We'll see you tomorrow night," after David Freese's walk-off homer in Game 6 of the 2011 World Series. Using his dad's signature call in St. Louis after such a remarkable game just always seemed so cool to me.
And then of course nobody could make this list without Al Michaels from Lake Placid in 1980. I get goosebumps every time I see this video and hear his call and I wasn't even alive. I truly can't imagine what an incredible moment that must have been.
What calls will you always remember?
