That Was a Disgusting Act by Joe Buck

I know Joe Buck's use of the "we'll see you... tomorrow night" call for David Freese's Game 6 walk-off homer was controversial- some saw it as a sweet tribute to a father by his son, while others considered it sacrilege. Put me in the latter camp.

Sure, I'm biased, as a Twins fan who considers that probably my all-time favorite sports moment, and also as someone who's not particularly a fan of Joe Buck. But announcing a game isn't karaoke, and great calls in the past should remain great calls in the past.

Meanwhile, George W. Bush was at the game that night, marking a rare moment in which Buck isn't the most flagrant beneficiary of nepotism in a particular room at a particular time.
