There’s something about the Nation’s Capital that brings out the bombastic behavior of basketball announcers. There’s the Wizards’ Steve Buckhantz who likes his daggers. There’s Georgetown’s Rich Chvoktin who believes a player got fouled. And now only 33 miles away in Annapolis, another b-ball broadcaster goes nuts:
In the opening round of the Patriot League tournament Wednesday night, Bucknell was down 1 to Navy with only 3 seconds left. When John Griffin’s 40-foot desperation shot went in, the play-by-player for the Bison Sports Network screamed “BIIIIIIIN-GOOOOOOOO!” - and yelled it again 3 more times just for good measure.
Now we know what the guy’s favorite church gambling activity is. But you can’t blame the college-age callers for getting so excited.
As they say, boom goes the dynamite.
