Bad call, Buck
October 28, 2011 - Per Peterson
I didn’t think I could think any less of Joe Buck. But then came Game 6 of the World Series. Buck calls the big games for Fox and capped off Thursday night’s thriller with “We will see you tomorrow night” after St. Louis’ David Freese won it with a walk-off home run. Sound familiar? That’s because Buck ripped it off from his late father, Jack, who had arguably the best voice in the history of voices. It was Jack Buck who shouted, “And we’ll see you tomorrow night” after Kirby Puckett’s legendary Game 6 home run against the Braves in 1991. Jack should’ve trademarked his quote, but even he couldn’t foresee his own boy plagiarizing one of the greatest lines in broadcast history. Perhaps Joe Buck got so lost in the moment and that's the first thing that came to his mind. Maybe he prayed Wednesday and asked his father if it would be OK to use his line. Even if he succeeded in convincing himself it would be OK to use it because he's his son, it was still a pitiful decision. Shame on you, Joe Yuck. “And we’ll see you tomorrow night” is sacred ground and you stomped all over it. Shame, shame, shame on you.
