This is our weekly look at the most popular — or in some cases our personal favorite — videos on Clippit over the past week. Clippit is an awesome app that allows us to quickly grab 30-second clips from several live TV broadcasts and share them on social media.
Joe Buck and Troy Aikman call the amazing Super Bowl LI finish
We’ll start with this one as there are a lot of Brent Musburger videos to come…
The Patriots’ comeback (and of course Falcons’ collapse) to win Super Bowl LI was absolutely amazing, and we thought Fox got the job done with the broadcast of the Big Game as well. And I thought Joe Buck and Troy Aikman particularly did a great job, especially with the wild finish.
They sounded like fans at the bar yelling at the TV when they saw the replays of Julian Edelman’s absurd catch.
“OH THAT’S A CATCH!”
“OH MY GOD!”
I find that genuine emotion awesome. And I thought Buck did a really nice job with the final play:
And these replay angles from Fox were terrific on the touchdown:
Buck has taken a lot of crap over the years, but he’s grown on me at least after his handling of the 2016 MLB postseason and this NFL season. He knows when to be level-headed, when to show plenty of emotion, and when to let the crowd do the talking.
Brent Musburger calls his last game
Man, we’re seeing too many of the great broadcasters retire — from calling games, at least — over the last few months. Brent Musburger is leaving ESPN to to have a radio show in Las Vegas, and last week he called his final game. It was the Kentucky-Georgia men’s college basketball game, and those of us watching got a treat, as the whole production basically served as a tribute to Musburger (even in Rupp Arena with how Kentucky treated him). And the game went to overtime!
Here was one last, “You are looking live” from Brent:
And plenty of more clips from the night:
And this awesome video montage tribute put together by ESPN after the game ended:
And Brent signing off:
