Since I gave major props to the Sabres' RJ, I think it's only fitting to link to this tribute to Bob Murphy, the former Mets radio announcer who passed away in 2004. Some of his classic calls are on the site. The 2 minute montage up here contains a bunch of these, including the first Mets game in 1969 brought to you by Rheingold Extra Dry, and "The Mets win the game, and they win the damn thing by a score of 10 to 9!" (I had previously thought the latter was from a playoff game, but it was a fairly innocuous Philly game on 7/25/90 in which the Mets were leading 10-3 entering the bottom of the 9th, and somehow squeaked it out.)

The summer airwaves will never be the same without him. It's a 1:05 start, and that means it's Tanqueray time!
