I think people were split about whether they enjoyed the Gus Johnson call of Brandon Stokley’s TD on Sunday, but the announcer himself went on the Dan Patrick Show today to defend his excitement. Via Sports Radio Interviews….

“I thought I was gonna have a heart attack. It was the most incredible thing. I’ve seen a lot of great things in sports. I started doing this in 1990, but I’ve never seen anything; not like in that in football. I mean wow.

Sometimes it’s kinda hard. Some people don’t like that, but in a moment like that, I can’t help but to let go. It’s a job, but c’mon we really don’t have jobs.”- Gus Johnson

Obviously the reason, I like Gus Johnson is because of that emotion, but he does have a tendency to blow things out of proportion. I mean, sure it was a great play, but a week one game between two teams that aren’t making the Playoffs? I dunno.
