What's your favorite sports sound?

My favorite comes from Rangers GM Glen Sather from back when he was the Oilers GM.

If I had the Rangers budget I'd never lose a game

Of course Sather became the Rangers GM and missed the playoffs 4 years in a row with the highest or close to the highest payroll in the league.

Kenny Wheaton with 'The Pick' for the Ducks in 1994 against the Huskies at Autzen

"the most improbable finish to a football game!"...okay, obviously it's a homer call, but this was probably the most important play in the Ducks' football and, possibly, sports history - that win sent us on the way to winning out and going to the Rose Bowl. Plus it was over then-no. 9 Washington, and to get such a big win over a top-10 team - and having it be your most hated rival - was massive.

just as good is Dave Niehaus' home run call for any Mariners game, "FLY AWAY! Goodbye baseball!" :D some of the play calls for the Mariners from '95 and '01 are classic too.

Quoteth the immortal Ben Dreith: "Number 99 of the defense, after tackling the quarterback, was giving him the business down there."

I wish there was a clip of that. We're coming up on its twentieth anniversary.

no sound files, but... i'm reenact them in text form.

"practice? we talking bout practice? not a game, but practice? practice? practice? practice, man? we talking bout practice.... man... not a game... not a game... not a game... not a game, but practice?"

also, from a play by play standpoint:

"the dallas stars! brett hull! they've won the stanley cup! deep in the heart of texas, the stars are shining."

and from daryl reaugh, "after that hit, grant marshall looks as confused as a goat on astroturf" and " eddie belfour is standing on his tippy-toes like a midget at a urinal"

There's two that will always stick out to me...

First, from Super Bowl XXXII... "You can stand up and salute in Denver... you've got the World Champions!"

And from the 2004 World Series... "Red Sox fans have longed to hear it! The Boston Red Sox are World Champions!"

He is our favorite NHL announcer in the whole league. When my friends and I get together, we tune in the Sabres to see if it's the home or away broadcast team just so we can listen to him. He's the closest thing to the North Stars Al Shaver.
