In today’s Cubs-Yankees game at Wrigley Field, the Cubs (who I am a diehard fan of, unfortunately) were trailing 4-2 as they entered the bottom of the ninth inning. Then, Reed Johnson led off the ninth inning with a home run off of future Hall of Famer, Mariano Rivera, to cut the Yankees’ lead to 4-3.
But, Joe Buck, the play-by-play announcer today for the Fox broadcast, thought Johnson’s home run tied the game. And thankfully, I had my Flip camera handy to get video of his gigantic fail of a home run call.
Check it out:
Seriously, how does the play-by-play announcer not know the score in that situation? As a Cubs fan, if I walked into a room without knowing the score and heard Buck’s call, I would be furious.
