Four entertaining calls from the Redskins Radio Network as Sunday’s game went past the end of regulation. Say whatever you’d like, but Larry Michael, Sonny Jurgensen and Sam Huff produce a broadcast unlike any other.
The Final Whistle
Larry: And they’re headed to overtime!
Sam: And some of the people are heading home.
Sam: Well, they just don’t want to be in the crowd with the traffic.
Larry: I don’t see anybody leaving, Sam.
Sam: Well, they’re coming up the aisle way.
Larry: He looks like he’s headed out to maybe get a beverage.
Sam: Ok. Or go to the bathroom.
Larry: One or the other.
Sam: Maybe both.
Sam: Well, Roger Goodell knew what he was doing whenever he set up this schedule, to bring the Cowboys in here and to play the Redskins.
Sonny: Well, they play twice every year.
Larry: Every year since 1961.
Sam: Well, that was Pete Rozelle.
Larry: He knew what he was doing, too.
Larry: Redskins will have it first and 10 at their own 18. We are in overtime at FedEx Field.
Sam: Does that mean the first team that scores wins?
Larry: That’s exactly right, Sam. We’ve been through it a couple times, I know, with you.
Sam: Well, that’s good. I just want to make sure.
Larry: First team that scores wins.
Sam: Ok. Well, the Redskins have the ball, so you’ve got a good shot.
The Missed Field Goal
Larry: We are ready, this is it, from 52 yards out. The kick is on the way, he’s got the distance, and heeeeeeeee.....
Sam: He’s got it!
Larry: He missed it! He missed it wide right!
Sam: He missed it?
Larry: He missed it wide right, so the Cowboys will take over.
Sam: I thought it went through?
Larry: Wide right.
