    I love LA’s emotion and love for the phillies every game he calls….he was legitimately speechless here….awesome

  • http://superfantabulousblog.blogspot.com/ maria

    LA was either speechless or choking.

  • Mark

    God I wish that was Harry calling it. I like Franzke but, I can’t imagine what Harry’s call would of sounded like

  • zack

    so is that what a professional hitter does?

  • FuquaManuel

    Where is Harry anyways? Is comcast doing TV coverage for the series?

  • http://www.majorleaguejerk.com Gonzo

    I think I heard Wheels screaming in the background. Truly awesome man.

  • http://www.phillies.com Mike

    Nah Gonzo, that was LA screaming and wildin’ out…

    I dunno what the deal is with Harry… it seems that he is calling the games less and less with every passing week =(. I know him and Wheeler can’t be in the same room together… but lately he’s not even there when Wheels isn’t around….

    Larry musta been sippin on something just as that ball was hit.

    oh! git! *cough* burk!

    god bless Larry (I will not use the phrase “LA” till this series is over)

  • MikeY

    @ Mike:

    Harry does innings 1-3 and 7-9 on TV and innings 4-6 on the radio during the regular season.

    During the playoffs, with him not being on TV, I think he’s doing innings 3-7 on the Radio with Franzke and LA doing innings 1, 2, 8 and 9.

  • The Juggernaut

    Larry Anderson is the man!!!!

  • Rick

    When i heard it on the post game show, i thought LA said “OH SHIT”

  • Matt

    I could watch this everyday for the rest of my life. Brilliant.

  • Gonzo

    Thanks for commenting on this, Matt. It showed up in the recent comments and it was fun to watch this again.

  • Watrick

    I started reading this blog this year, and didn’t know you had the clip with LA and Franzke. This is truly awesome. I can’t wait to have kids, and then have them be 19 and not see a winner their whole life, and I can be like, “When that fat Canadian Bacon hit that ball, my life changed. For the first time in my life I thought, we have this-we’re going to actually win a title…. I’m speechless…”

  • Lynniemac

    ” I can’t wait to have kids, and then have them be 19 and not see a winner their whole life…”

    I think that might qualify for pre-parental cruelty, wishing that on your yet-to-be-born kids.

  • Paaaaaay-dro’s hair now

    Scott, when can you move to CSN and get rid of McCarthy?

  • Watrick

    It was more based on empirical records of championships in this city, not so much as “I wish the teams don’t win” senario. Loosely based on my dad bringing up the 1980 team anytime something good was happening to the Phillies. I’m just glad I don’t have to hear about that all the time now.

    Thanks for bumping this again.

    Bump.

    “Here’s Rollins!”

  • Dave

    Awesome Website! Personally I love our new carpet runner. It’s a great first impression to friends visiting to my place. And the carpets are very enjoyable to walk on! Never again do I have to experience the pain of walking on glacial stairs in the morning. It also supresses the sound produced from walking on it! I extremely advise everyone to get one! It’s besides a perfect safety addition to your home. Trust me, falling on a stair with a carpet runner is much more enjoyable than falling on one without any!

    Great Blog! Personally I love mine new carpet runner. It’s a very good first impression to friends coming over to my house. And the carpets are very enjoyable to walk on! Never again do I have to experience the pain of walking on chilly stairs in the morning. It also mutes the noise created from walking on it! I highly advocate everyone to get one! It’s also a amazing safety addition to your home. Trust me, falling on a stair with a carpet runner is much more preferable than falling on one without any!
