We Believe In: Hawk Harrelson's Homerun Call

One of the few redeeming qualities of the movie Bull Durham is Kevin Costner's "I believe" speech, that along with the giggles from watching Tim Robbins' attempt to throw a baseball. To say he throws like a girl is an insult to females everywhere.

What does this have to to with us? Well Robin Hood's speech has inspired us here at T3I to roll out a new series. Here's the first of things we believe in. In other words, just some random junk we think is cool.

Ken "Hawk" Harrelson's Homerun Call

For those of you unfamiliar with Hawk, he's the color man for Chicago White Sox broadcasts. His "You can put it on the booooooaaaaaarrrrdd......YESSSSSS!" cracks us up every time. Next time SportsCenter flashes a ChiSox highlight, listen caerfully. Enjoy, and Hawk...we believe in you.

"4-2 good guys," - I barely recall it but about 20 years ago, Hawk actually did the Yankees telecasts on effing Sportschannel (its amazing that we even had Sportschannel on our cable system back then)...good stuff Champ.
