    Everyone's got their favorites that they know who called it, etc.

    IMO--"Swing and a drive......and we'll see you tomorrow night"; Jack Buck......Puckett's GW HR against ATL.

    Honorable mention: Jack Buck--Game 1 WS......."I don't believe what I just saw."

    I was going to say Don Denkinger's safe call in the 1985 series... :)

    Vin Scully, best there ever was.

    Hey, has DD been mentioned as one of the greatest umpires of all time?

    I remember one of Scully's where he said, "If you're wearing a sombrero, throw it in the air..."

    I don't remember which game that was, but it always makes me laugh...

    I don't want to steal from Sports Predictor, but knowing how much Cleveland fans had suffered, I just remember watching the Indians beat the Yankees and the venerable Harry Doyle shouting with glee:

    "The Indians win it. The Indians win it. Oh my God, the Indians win it."

    It was a great moment for Cleveland sports.

    "I don't believe what I just saw!" has to be up there, even if it was for the fucking Dodgers on Gibson's HR...
