I want all play-by-play commentary to be like this

Jun 21, 2013, 11:02 AM EST

I have no idea where this comes from. I assume some British comedy show or something. All I know is that I would watch games with this guy doing the play-by-play before about two-thirds of actual current broadcast teams.

    I love the home-run foul ball. And the catcher seems to be referred to as the half-man half-robot goalkeeper, or some such.

      “Wicketkeeper,” I believe.

      By the name of “Salamander”, too. Well caught, Salamander.

    Mother Hubbard! Look at all those sailors.

    hey this is kooky.

    The funniest part to me was him referring to Saltalamacchia as “Salamander.”

      Which is a far better nickname than “Salty.”

    i love the “FBI agent” reference to the umpires – hilarious

    What’s all this then? Jolly good, cheerio, pip pip, carry on.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a Yankee?? Who knew?

    I never saw any Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Ichiro before, but it did make me chuckle.

    “Slams it into the floor – is that allowed? – lobs it to his friend, and….NOT OUT!”

    And the FBI agent signals WIDE…good for him…just happy to be involved.

    I couldn’t even sit through the whole thing. So annoying!

      C’mon now love, it was sure better than listening to Harrelson! And I can’t wait to hear his call of Saturday night’s Stanley Cup game! Wait till he sees the half-man half-robots at either end of the hockey pitch. :-)

        On the other hand, it might make the NL more interesting — liven up the pitchers batting and all that.

    Wow it’s like why did I even watch the video when I could’ve just scrolled through the comments for a complete transcript?

    Some people have no sense of humor

    I’d rather watch someone kicking a puppy. How stupid.
