Ian Eagle pays tribute to Seinfeld in buzzer beater call

Brooklyn Nets play by play man and NFL on CBS announcer Ian Eagle was able to pull off quite the impressive double dip during Friday's Nets-Pistons game in Brooklyn  Joe Johnson hit a buzzer beating three with the game tied at the end of the second overtime for a 108-105 victory.  Not only did Eagle give a solid call of the game-winner, he also paid homage to comedian Jerry Seinfeld, who was sitting at courtside.

Although he may not have a widespread reputation as a funny man, Eagle's sense of humor is sneaky good.  His call of "That was real and that was spectacular" is a fitting tribute to both Johnson's buzzer beater and this famous Seinfeld clip.
