I GOT A SNOW DAY TODAY!!!!
How cool is that? Well, not really that cool. School being canceled means I don’t have to go to work, which means I’m bored all day at home with nothing to do besides school work. On top of that, I have to make up the hours I’m missing at work today before the end of the week. Damn. I remember when snow days were fun.
But I guess this gives me time to write a J Beanie post. I was going to talk about the Super Bowl and all that stuff but, no. Last night’s Cavs game gave me a great topic to talk about today.
Mo Williams was amazing. LeBron James was incredible. But they weren’t the best part of the game. They came in second and third in the top three performances of the night. Austin Carr had one of the best, most incredible announcing performances of the year, or even all time.
In the second quarter, Mo Williams made two three’s with in a few minutes of each other. AC’s calls for both those three’s were unbelievably classic. My description of the calls will not do them justice but I’ll do my best.
LeBron drove, passed it to Mo in the corner and drilled the three. Fred McCoud said something like, “Batman finds Robin this time.” Pretty lame but we all got what he was saying. Then Mr. DiGiorno Pizza says this “Batman to Robin in the corner… and it’s gooooooood from deep in The Q.” Now, just reading that, it doesn’t seem too bad. However, AC started in his normal voice, then when he got to the “it’s goood” part, he started singing in a high pitched, gay man’s voice. Why? Who the hell knows. Probably the same reason he still has a job. My brother and I replayed this line at least six times. It kept getting funnier and funnier. We couldn’t even get to the end of it without laughing.
As good as that line was, AC was far from done. Less than two minutes later, Mo hit another three. AC went back to work. “Williams from… da… deep in The Q.” You could tell he was looking so hard for something to say other than “deep in The Q” but couldn’t think of anything so he just went with it. But he wasn’t done. He followed it up with “Enie, meanie, minie Mooooooo Williams” in his singing voice again.
Later in the game, Tarence Kinsey hit a three and AC just gave up trying to find a new “catch phrase.” He just unleashed “Tarence Kinsey from deep in The Q.”
So everyone, I think we can look forward to many more “deep in The Q” lines for a long time. Long live Austin Carr.
