Posnanski revisited his 32 Best Calls In Sports History to honor the 25th anniversary of Kirk Gibson’s home run in the 1988 World Series. Checking in at #10 is Larry Munson’s epic call of Lindsey Scott’s 92-yard catch-and-run that helped Georgia beat Florida in 1980. I remember watching the game live, and probably hearing some network announcer call it, and I’ve heard the central part of Munson’s call many times. But I had never heard the aftermath, which is absolutely incredible.
“Man is there going to be some property destroyed tonight!”
BTW, the rest of Posnanski’s piece is great, too. I spent about half an hour last night watching all the clips, then expanding to look up some of my other favorites. Good freaking times!
