World Series 2011 Game 6: Joe Buck’s perfect “We’ll see you ... tomorrow night” (video)

But the best thing? It may just have been the call by Joe Buck, who channeled his late father Jack, on David Freese’s 11th-inning home run...the one that gave the St. Louis Cardinals a 10-9 victory and brought about Game 7 tonight. (Video after the jump.)

And the best thing is that Buck didn’t clutter it with words. For all the deserved criticisms Buck gets (for, among other things, defending Cardinals Manager Tony La Russa), he nailed this call...with just a simple, elegant sentence, taken from his dad’s 1991 call. Perfection.
