The YFSF John Sterling Call Contest: Mark Teixeira
The signing of Mark Teixeira means that the Giambino! is gone, and that means we lose one John Sterling home run call, but gain another. This is your chance to predict what Sterling's call will be for the newest Yankee slugger. The commenter with the best entry (as judged by the moderators) will win a YFSF mug. If anyone actually nails the name (we'll find out in April), that person also gets a mug. Here's my attempt:
"Well, Suzyn, isn't that just like baseball. Yesterday the Yanks couldn't hit worth a lick against Sidney Ponson, and today they're knocking Josh Beckett around."
"Sidney will be Sidney."
"Isn't that the truth!" (Sound of screaming fans in background. Someone has clearly hit a home run. 5 seconds elapse) "There it goes! It is high! It is far! It…is…gone!!! A shot by the Excellent Texellent!"
Obviously I have set the bar low. Have at it!
