Imagine Bobby Thomson’s Shot Heard ’Round the World without Russ Hodges yelling, “The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant!”
And imagine your walk-off grand slam in last year’s city softball championship without the Raiders’ play-by-play guy getting worked into a frenzy.
The truth is, you can’t. Which is why we mention Call My Play, a new service that’ll create highlight custom reels from the most glorious moments of your life, online now.
Your pickup game dunk on LeBron: you remember it well. Everyone else: doesn’t. That’s what this is for. You’ll have seasoned veterans like Oakland Raiders announcer Greg Papa adding commentary to your diving grabs, your 102-yard interception returns or maybe that night when you went home with a dozen numbers. (It’s still unclear why that was recorded on video, but never mind.)
The method: you’ll upload footage of your crowning moments, and share a few crucial facts (the tale of your rise to pétanque stardom, that sort of thing). Then, a professional sports broadcaster will give it the aura it deserves with a combination of play-by-play and color that’ll put Costas to shame. After a week or so, you’ll get a link with your new video, which you can email or share directly to Facebook. And finally, your triple-double in last year’s company basketball game will be put in its proper historical context.
Cue “One Shining Moment”...
