Love him or hate him, John Sterling will always be remembered for his quirky — to say the least — home run calls. If I’m not mistaken, I believe he has just released his latest hit: “Gardy Goes Yardy.”
This call came on Friday night in the fourth inning when Brett Gardner launched his second homer of the year to tie the game at 1. But that’s not where I’m going with this.
We did a nice job brainstorming for Curtis Granderson, and Sterling eventually used one Mr. Andrew Fletcher** thought up. Let’s see if we can do the same for Gardner, as I really think Gardner deserves a better call on the rare occasion in which he does hit a homer.
Here’s what popped into my head:
- “A homer by Brett the Jet, something he’ll never forget!”
- “Brett the Jet, bombs away!”
If you think of better ideas be sure to leave them in the comments.
**If you happen to know Mr. Fletcher, creator of Scott Proctor’s Arm, you should know he is graduating from Quinnipiac University today. You can follow the live Webcast here to see him walk. The ceremony begins at 10:45 a.m., and Bill Nye (the Science Guy) is this year’s speaker!
Congrats, Fletch. And to you too, Mr. Andrew Vazzano, creator of TheRopolitans.com. These two chuckleheads introduced me to blogging, and I can’t say thank you to them enough. I’ll miss you two dearly next year.
I hope both of you will be employed by the time I graduate.
