Classic Don Burgundy

This is the play I was talking about last night. He says it's down and off the wall, then that it's gone, then that it's caught by Bonifacio, when it was actually Davis:

And while he admitted to all this shortly afterwards, the worst part of his calls isn't simply needing glasses and not being able to see what's going on, but the fact that he's saying "this one will get down" before the ball is even in the guy's glove. He guesses at things before they happen, and it totally screws him when they don't. Maybe this is a byproduct of not being able to see--he's forced to guess. Then again, he'll do his gun-jumping on very obvious routine plays, so maybe it's a perfect storm for bad play-by-play.

And then Remy blames the scoreboard for Don effing up the call.
