I guess it's the person saying the quote (not the quote itself that he gets wrong), but this was hilarious none-the-less. The O's and Yanks were in the midst of a homerun battle and the Orioles had comeback from down four once and were trying to do it again. Luke Scott came up after a Melvin Mora homerun and nails a pitch to centerfield.
Listen closely as Thorne, first goes crazy, and then tries to use the crowd in his call....
I can't stop laughing after that for some reason. Okay, a couple of things. First, if Luke Scott actually hit it back near the scoreboard at Camden Yards it would be somewhere around 550ft. Second, as every 80s nerd knows Darth Vader never would have said, "May the Force be with you."
I love how he starts the quote and then trails off at the end because he knows he screwed it up. Good stuff as always from the ever-clueless Thorne.
