Just something I thought was awesome for reals …
Given that a Texas radio station recognized one of my play-by-play calls as its “Homer Call of the Week” back when I was a student broadcaster, I have a soft spot for this kind of thing. I’m fairly certain, however, I never had a moment quite like this one from the radio voice of the Houston Rockets, Craig Ackerman.
Kudos to Matt Yoder (@myoder84) for featuring this in a post on his site, awfulannouncing.com, and pointing out how ol’ Craig was not only hilariously straddling the awkward line between enthusiastic and bizarre but also sticking it to Kobe.
I’m giving Matt the full point for today’s Internet Win—it was his site and his story that gave me the gift of this wonderful video, after all. However, I feel I should point out that I actually first came across it when he tweeted about it from @awfulannouncing, which gives voice to a lot of the stuff I shout at the TV while watching sports.
