“This is what the people will be talking about for the rest of the day, probably the rest of the week,” said Holden Kushner.
He wasn’t kidding.
During Monday’s broadcast of the “Holden and Danny Show” on 106.7 The Fan, Kushner set up a “previously unheard” recap of the Washington Redskins win over the San Diego Chargers. The highlight reel is about six minutes worth of calls from the game’s radio broadcast.
“We have found, via the internet, Washington’s football team radio call that you weren’t allowed to hear. It’s with Larry (Michaels), Sunny and Kris.”
And so begins the “Larry Michaels Highlight Show”…
Michaels: So the Redskins, the best team in the NFL, come in with a record of 11-0. (They) win the coin toss, Sunny, don’t want the football. They don’t even need it.
Sunny: Kick the ball.
Michaels: So — me, me, me — Kai Forbath, leads the league in all kicking categories, to kickoff.
So, Scifres back to punt — me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, that punt out of bounds at the one.
This awful field position brought to you by D.C. realty. When you don’t like where you are — move.
Redskins — me, me, me — decide not to score the TD and kick a field goal. Why do they do that here, Kris?
Kris: I have a reason for everything.
Michaels: So here’s Forbath, who has never missed in his life to kick… and it’s blocked! Keith Burns is doing a sensational job, Sunny.
Sunny: Throw the ball.
Michaels: Thank you, Sunny.
So after the Chargers cheated and it isn’t called it will be their stolen and undeserved football at their 15. And believe me I know about getting things you don’t deserve.
Redskins ball at their own one. What should they do here, Sunny?
Sunny: Throw the ball.
Michaels: Okay, Sunny. Griffin back to pass. He’s staring at one receiver… it’s illegally batted in the air. Touchdown San Diego. How does that not get called?
Kris: Twenty years ago they would have been considered completely normal.
Michaels: That bad play call and opponent touchdown brought to you by frustrating sadness. Frustrating sadness and the Redskins partners for 21 years.”
And it continued right through the exciting conclusion of the game.
Major credit to Danny Rouhier for voicing the entire production, with the exception of the real “Kris Kooley.”
Me, me, me, me, me… now listen to the whole thing.
