I love this clip (via The Legend of Cecilio Guante). It’s the lovable, nerdy Tim Kurkjian phoning into Baseball Tonight to discuss the Rangers’ 30-run game. His genuine excitement for the record-breaking feat is only surpassed by his rattling off of obscure stats and voice cracking over and over.
By the time he exclaims, “Is that the only question you’re going to ask me?” there’s an air of wonder and desperation that’s been missing from this particular program since ESPN began incorporating the likes of John Kruk and Steve Phillips. Enjoy it like fine vintage. I bet Karl Ravech does.
