Costas and Michaels Felt Like Mets Post Season Baseball
It felt like it was the post season and somehow the Mets were playing the Giants in the Wild Card round. If only that were true, but hearing the two of them certainly gave me a taste of what that would be like, and I loved it.
I was surprised to learn that neither of these two sports icons never called a game together. How come? Why not?
I must admit that while I’m a huge fan of Gary, Keith and Ron, after listening to them for over 1,000 telecasts, the short break was refreshing to say the least. Gary’s homerun call was awesome to me when I first heard it on the radio and for a few years I even considered it one of the best Mets homerun calls in their history. Now I’m back on Bob Murphy’s bandwagon. Is it me, or is every deep flyball a reason for Gary to go into his four-bagger routine?
Getting back to Costas and Michaels, while we still get to hear Costas call games for the MLB Network and in the post season, Michaels hasn’t called a baseball game since the 1995 World Series over 15 years ago.
Here’s some good news for those of you who enjoyed the nostalgia of the moment, according to MLBN president Tony Petitti, the network will pair Costas with other surprise guests including Michaels again if he’s up for it.
Can you imagine a Vin Scully and Bob Costas pairing? Now, you’re talking - how awesome would that be.
What were your thoughts on Michaels and Costas last night? Did you have that post season feeling too?
