That, my friends, is the home run call for Curtis Granderson, made by the radio voice of the Yankees, John Sterling.
That's actually only half of it. After that he sings a few bars of The Candy Man, substituting "Grandy" for "Candy." I kid you not.
After his "performance" last night he explained to his partner Suzyn Waldman, that the call part is based on a line from an old Broadway show. He never said which show. Did he forget the name of it?
Sterling's over-the-top home run calls have made him famous (or, infamous, depending on whom you ask). You either love him or hate him. I love him and I love most of his home run calls, among them:
"An A-bomb! For A-Rod!"
"A Teix message!"
"Jorgie juiced one!"
But I don't love this latest home run call. It's way past over-the-top and it needs to go! He is truly embarrassing himself with it.
What do you think of John Sterling and his home run calls?
