I can’t even describe this adequately. I’ll just advise you to listen to the final 34 seconds of the third quarter from the Sixers’ opener as called by Tom McGinnis. A sampling:

“Spencer Haaaawes! Nice play by the big man. That’s a little vet savvy. Hey JaVale McGee, I know you want to block this shot, you are anxious to make up for that little boo boo do… what happened here? They wave it off. They call traaaaveling! And I just screamed out Spencer Hawes in sing-song fashion and you call walking?! That ruins the call! Mr. Referee, we’re on a little rift here.”


Pretty Hawesome.

    This sounds straight out of South Park

    McGinnis is awesome…that is all

    This guy makes it more interesting to listen to the game rather than watch, good shit.
    For a moment I thought I was hearing sound bites from some NBA JAM sequel or something.

    Love McGinnis (the REAL T-Mac), but it’s more fun drinking to Zoo and Malik. I’ve been sobering up since I can’t drink to JJ and Coatsey, so the Sixers were a welcome start. “Down it goes!”, “lock all windows and doors”, and all that shit-that-Malik-says, all worth drinks. CAN’T WAIT for the next game. 10-9-8…

    Tom McGinnis could make a sewing competition sound exciting.

    Dude thinks he’s John Sterling… Still love him though.

    All that describing a basketball game on the radio and Mc Ginnis still said less than Mc Carthy would have on television during a baseball game.
