The Biggest Homer Ever

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , — Peter Edmiston @ 9:33 am

From time to time, it’s important to point out that sometimes our commentators in the world of sports aren’t exactly impartial in their call of the game. Homerism is a fact of life, no matter the country and no matter the sport. Most of you probably think you’ve seen the most blatant homerism already (from Wolo, perhaps)…but you’re wrong. So very, very wrong. THIS is the most incredible commentator ever. To set it up: this is the Milan derby – AC Milan vs. Inter Milan – and to say they’re bitter rivals would be an understatement. The gentleman on the call here would seem to be an AC Milan fan.

Sweet mercy that is some kind of emotion. Perhaps our guys here aren’t homer enough after all. I’d love to see Pete Pranica do this after the Grizzlies hit a key three-pointer at the end of a game:

“THREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! MIKE MILLER!!!!!!!! MILLLLLLLEEEERRRRRR!!!!!!!! AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!”

Can we get someone on this?

(thanks to Awful Announcing for the find)
