David Ortiz finally hit a dinger. I don’t think words can quite do justice to the response in Fenway. But they say a picture’s worth a thousand words — so when that ball got out, this is approximately what happened in Boston:

    just say it, Sarah: Red Sox nation had a collective orgasm.

    It was so big, The Eck couldn’t invent any new terminology to describe it.

  2. Sarah Green says:

    Man, I am loving listening to Eck during these broadcasts. Wishing Jerry Remy a speedy recovery, of course, but I could barely contain myself when last night, he stopped himself in the middle of a story about Nolan Ryan so as not to “jinx” Daniel Bard.

    Really considered putting an, um, anatomical photo in that collection above but…we’re a family site.

    One of the funniest blog postings in months, and all true.


    Almost as good as a Dick Allen HR!

  4. I think an audio clip of ‘Afternoon Delight’ would have been apropriate.

    You know, sky rockets in flight?

  5. Sarah Green says:

    Oh, we could do a whole separate post of audio clips!

    – Beethoven’s Ode to Joy
    – Meg Ryan’s fake orgasm
    – Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus
    – “Danger Zone” from Top Gun
    – Fanfare of trumpets blaring
    – “I Can See Clearly Now” by Johnny Nash
    – Church bells pealing

    Anyone got some more?

    Loverboy “Take me to the Top”

    Elvin Bishop “Struttin’ My Stuff”

    Sex Pistols “Submission” no, wait…..

    I’m loving Eck too, Sarah. the gushing over young pictures “who can throw the gas” is hilarious, he’s clearly in love. him and his trivia questions keeping Orsillo on his toes and “how do you guys even talk about Wakefield? I got nothin”.

    plus, he’s clearly baffled by the Jays 1st place standing, which he mentions once an hour.

    I could do without “cheese with hair on it” though. ewwww.

  8. Lyndsay says:

    pitchers, not pictures. doh!
