How great was Hawk's call on Sunday when Timo scored on Ben Davis' double to win the game?

Even that national wrap-up shows like SportsCenter turned up Hawk's call.

"Come on, Timo; Come on, Timo; Come on, Timo; Come on, Timo!"

Good Stuff.

That WAS great. Hawk is such a homer, but I think he's awesome.

I was yelling the same thing right along with him. It was sure nice to pull that off and especially with two outs. Timo and Ben - the dangerous duo!

A Cub fan friend of mine took that call as a chance to defend Ron Santo, asking me how I can advocate one's call and not the other's. I explained that the difference was that Hawk still managed to at least mention *some* of what was going on during the play, while Santo just would scream "Ahhhhhhh, go, go, go!" and you would have no idea what was happening AND he's on the damn radio.

Wasn't that right after Hawk was kind of making fun of cleveland's pitcher for throwing over to first a million times as if he was scared of Timo running? Hawk kept mentioning how Timo isn't nearly as fast as he looks when he dances around with the big lead.

Is there any way to hear this quote online? I haven't had time to hear it yet and would like to before it becomes a distant memory...

Thanks

Hawk's call of Alomar's HR on Saturday was awesome too. He was discussing bunts with DJ and suddenly surged with emotion: "YOU DON'T NEED TO BUNT WHEN YOU CAN DO THIS! THE GAME IS TIED! YES!!!"

Hawk rocks!

I LOVE hearing Hawk go nuts. Its awesome to have an announcer with so much passion for our team. You can just tell how big of a fan he is.


Did anyone notice the little dance Timo did when he was called safe?

I was trying to find the clip of this as well. I already heard it a few times, but I want to listen to it a few times. MLB.com has the Indians broadcast team calling it which is kind of stupid. ESPN.com doesn't have it up on their media player.

My only suggestion would be that if you're near a radio, tune into the Score at 10:00 and/or 11:00 and Boers and Bernstein should play it. They always play highlights of the Sox and Cubs games and I'm sure that will make the cut at either or both times when they play the clips.

I'm a big Hawk fan, but this kind of makes sense. mlb.com probably wants a non-homer announcer doing their games over the internet. That disqualifies Hawk immediately

They played it at the top of their show at 10:00, I believe they replay the exact same intro at 1:00...

Hawk's call was awesome in the moment and in retrospect!

It was especially great since the game was broadcast on WGN. Sox fans all over the country got to live the moment with Hawk on WGN!

I can imagine Sox fans every where on their feet, I was! Pleading with the baseball Gods and willing Timo across the plate!

Hawk, you made our day!

Sportscenter ran the call; Craig Kilbourn was back for "Old School" week and even shut his yap for Hawk to do his thing.

Great, great moment. One of the great calls in Sox history. Four "Come On Timo's" followed by "here's the throw" and a "Safe! Sox win ..3-2...YES!"

:hawk

I luv the moment!

As a Sox fan who sees VERY few Sox games, I appreciate the call immensley. I fortunately saw the game (call) on WGN. It bothers me though the manerrisms on the Sox bench when we fell into a tie ("here we go again"); and the lack of emotion by the "team" when Timo scored on "Big" Ben Davis' hit ("what do we do now?").

The Baseball God(s) have been kind of on my **** list lately, because they have answered very few of my prayers the last two weeks. Yesterday, I actually called upon them to see Ben Davis through that at-bat, and they finally helped us out.

I don't have it on tape, but I think I was yelling, "C'MON TIMO!" from my perch in Section 530 as well. :D:

My Call was a little different, "Yeah BEN, Run you stupid mother F*****, RUN!, Send Him Joey, send him, Send Him Joey you better... YEah Run F*****, he's going to be safe! You better call him SAFE you A******, yeah we won we finally won a F****** game!!"

I'm probably too much of a Homer for the MLB Baseball webcasts too.

now that i've heard it;

it struck me as a call of a very bitter and frustrated old man finally seeing a chance to let all that built up frustration and bitterness out and grabbing it with both hands

not to be confused with home team enthusiasm!

he should buy a ticket and go sit in the bleachers if he wants to do that

just my opinion...

Damn right he's frustrated....He knows more about this team and cares more about there success that most broadcasters do. He's a huge homer, but he cares and thats the most important thing. If you can't appreciate that, well quite frankly, you dont know jack.

i just think a broadcast booth isn't the right place to show it so one sided as Hawk did last night, that's all...

Hawk works for and supports the Sox so why wouldn't he be excitied and one sided? I'd be pissed if he wasn't and so would every other Sox fan.

Hawk rules. I see a ton of games on Directv and so many announcers sleepwalk through games. You can tell Hawk lives and dies with the sox, like we fans do. He's not doing a national broadcast.

Please forgive me. I read in the "Talking baseball" forum that Ben Davis was recently signed to a minor league pitching deal with the Reds and, of course, could only think of one thing.

In memory, and due to the fact that this has been a slow day for ridiculous trade idea threads, I thought it only fair to bring back and oldie... but a goodie.

So, BUMP.

EDIT: For the record, the good part isn't the thread, but what happened on the field to inspire the thread. ALSO, I've noticed that had I read far enough down in the "talking baseball" thread, I would have seen that this was brought up alread.. oh well - it was still classic.

Santo's pathetic politicing for himself just personifies why he has been such a prick going back to his playing days.

Hawk, on the other hand, is an enthusiastic homer who brings a lot more perspective and color to his broadcasts.

He is also not afraid to knock the team when it is doing poorly, or underachieving. He is realistic in his philosophy and, like him or not, really identifies himself with the team if they play like champs or chumps.

Santo thinks its a ****ing conspiracy if the cubs are not 162-0, win every game 14-0, sweep all postseason series and player awards, and adds no baseball insight of value at all.

That 'Timo' call was Hawk at his best. A true homer, he tried to provide Timo with that bit extra to get him in. Just like a true fan cheering on their favorite team in the same situation. I truly loved that call back then, and still do.

Santo would have just sat there with a call like that and said 'that's nice.'

It is a real shame a pro like Pat Hughes has to have such an oxygen tank like Santo in the booth.
