NFT: all of Gary Thorne's Torres HR calls, in one video

Greg from LI : 8/13/2019 9:43 am
It's fun to watch and see his emotions go from annoyed to exasperated to resignation to bemusement.

Gary Thorne is a fellow Mainer. He did University of Maine hockey for 10 years when it was relevant and was a fill in for Mike Emrick on Maine Mariner games(AHL Championships) during the 70's. His honesty of frustration comes out on every Gleyber homerun. Always loved Thorne and Emrick due to those 70's memories. Poor bastard has to call of the O's disasters.
I love Thorne

His best work was by far on the NHL playoffs
Thorne is great.

One of my all-time favorite calls is his "HANG ON TO THE ROOF!" call of the Mattingly HR in the '95 ALDS at the Stadium.
Yes, I'm a big Gary Thorne fan  
Greg from LI : 8/13/2019 10:18 am : link
He's one of the best. The Mattingly call, absolutely, as well as his work in the 1994 Stanley Cup finals. "The Rangers win the Cup! The Rangers win the Cup! The Curse is over! They've done it!"
That was fun

The middle ones are my favorite,

when he just verbally throws up his hands.

"DON'T PITCH TO HIM!"
He and Palmer are some of the best

Down here in MD obviously watch the Yankees games on their channel. They have great commentary and analysis and arenít over the top homers.

Agreed. I miss him doing hockey, he and Bill Clement (Clement Clement hands of cement) had great chemistry. Hopefully when the next NHL TV contract happens they will have a deal with ESPN and we can hear it again.

It sucks he has been sentenced to doing O's games for the past decade plus.

Ehh I disagree on Palmer.
Yes, he is very knowledgable about pitching and explains it well, but he talks too much and can be a pompous Yankee hating ass.
Thorne was the best when...

he was the announcer for the Devils.

Perhaps he has been humbled. Of the two he is obviously going to be the homer. He knows his stuff and is detailed.

Calling hockey games was the best shit back when I wasn't this old.
