So admittedly I was about seven rum-and-cokes deep last night, and at a bar, and it was loud, and the sound on the TV was muffled, and I have terrible hearing, but did anyone listen Chip Caray and Buck Martinez last night?
Chip: Welcome back to this no-hitter, and for those of you just joining us in this no-hitter, we should let you know that we have a no-hitter going here! Daisuke "No-Hitter" Matsuzaka is pitching a no-hitter! NO HITTER! Buck?
Buck: Well, I would have to agree with you about the no-hitter part, partner. There is a no-hitter in progress! The Rays have NO hits! Chip?
Now, admittedly I'm more superstitious than most, but jeez, isn't there like an unwritten code in broadcasting that you're supposed to limit your talk about a no-hitter in progress? Some announcers will just refuse to talk about it all together, but even if you do, you don't have to cram it down the throats of this listeners. God, this is actually making me wish for Joe Buck and Tim McCarver.
From now on, I suggest everyone mute their TVs and watch this:
