Ryan Zimmerman Really Is Mr. Walk-Off

This is from Friday, so you probably saw it, but here it is for posterity:

Allow me to list the awesome things about this, beyond that it was a walk-off grand slam to beat the Phillies in a Phillies fans-filled Nats Park:

– The Phillies fan who got the HR ball actually raised his arms in triumph.
– Zim looked back at the Nats dugout before the ball even landed. Swag!
– Charlies Slowes’ HR call is about 1,000,000x better than Bob Carpenter’s.
– Zim received the rare pie in the face-Gatorade shower combo.
– This was Zim’s eighth walk-off HR in seven seasons, a new record.
– Zim is now four short of the all-time career walk-off HR record.

He is 26, he is ours and he is Mr. Walk-Off. We have the t-shirt to prove it.

  1. As I’ve stated on here before I’m not with the masses on the Carpenter hate but MI might be underestimating how much better Slowes call was.
    Few more things:
    -Zim’s effeminate helmet toss
    -His GS was part of a 6 run bottom of the ninth off Madsen
    -F Philly

  2. Got to keep in mind that a radio call requires a level of description that TV doesnt. But I think MI inception’d me into not liking Carpenter as much anymore, though FP is growing on me.

    I agree on your last point though Me. F Philly indeed.
