Joe Buck can get a little too cute at times, but Thursday night (or Friday morning, depending on where you were), he had the perfect -- if not predictable -- call for David Freese's walk-off home run.
Buck paid homage to his father, Jack, by saying "And we'll see you tomorrow night!" at the conclusion of Game 6 of the World Series. Jack had uttered the very same line back in 1991's Game 6 between the Twins and Braves. It's not the first time Joe has uttered the phrase, but given the circumstances, it was the biggest homage. Jack was a Cardinals broadcaster for nearly 50 seasons, and Joe says he thinks of his father often, especially during games.
"[It] was kinda the perfect time to do it," Joe said on KFNS St. Louis. "That was strictly for him and maybe as much for my mom who was watching back at home.”
