Listen to This Announcer Absolutely Lose His Mind After Miraculous Buzzer-Beater
Tommy Jenkins, the play-by-play announcer for Young Harris college basketball, could be forgiven for believing that the team’s game against Montevallo on Monday was over — given that just 1.6 seconds remained, and Young Harris was down by 3, with Montevallo shooting a free throw.
Still, it’s college basketball. Crazy things can and do happen on a regular basis.
And so when Young Harris player C.J. Wilson corralled the rebound off a missed free throw, took a dribble, and heaved the ball 60 feet through the basket for a remarkable game-tying buzzer-beater — Jenkins absolutely lost his mind.
YES! YES! YES! OH MY GOODNESS! YES! YES! YEYS! FORGIVE ME, LORD! I COUNTED MY CHICKENS BEFORE THEY HATCHED! WE KNOCKED DOWN A THREE POINTER! IT IS TIED! POINT-SIX SECONDS WHEN HE NAILED IT! PEOPLE WERE ALREADY LEAVING THE BUILDING, THEY’RE COMING BACK IN!
Lesson learned, Tommy. It’s college basketball. Never count your chickens before they hatch.
