Earlier today we told you about Joe Buck’s performance for the ages for Yankees/Red Sox this weekend. Well, Yankees play by play man John Sterling is anything but dispassionate and boring. Sterling’s trademarks include his “Yankees win, theeeeeeeee Yankees win” call at the end of a Yankee victory and his unique home run calls. Love him or hate him, at least he doesn’t sound like he has one foot in the grave ala the Buckster. Sterling’s newest entry with Canadian Russell Martin is perhaps one of his most… well… interesting. Qu’est-ce que c’est??? Huge H/T to @LevityNYC for the clip!
In the interest of full disclosure, I’m a Yankees fan dating back to the days of Paul O’Neill (don’t worry, I get a good share of hate for it), and part of me loves Sterling’s bizarre schtick, but I’m aware that scores of baseball fans (in New York too) can’t stand the man’s announcing. Let us know what you think about John Sterling’s eccentric excitability. Would you rather have your home announcer sound more like Sterling or Buck… or neither? Leave us a comment below!
