Yesterday was the 13th anniversary of the best moment in sports history.

One of the many amazing highlights that we were treated to with Don and Jerry in the booth

including the boob grab caught on TV, the lost tooth in the booth and Don and Jerry attempting to take a selfie.

I feel like we had a great thread about this last year, but that's no reason not to do it again. Especially given where we're at these days.

"He's the Pepsi Fan of the Game...until he gets thrown out."

That line makes me lose it every time.

(This deserves to be celebrated every year at SOSH, like Thurman Munson day. )

If Remy had only been able to come up with something like "Markakis has been a real handful in this at bat", DO probably wouldn't have been able to speak for 4 innings.

I wish I could find a clip, but that time they were discussing an upcoming lunar eclipse and Don though the sun came between the earth and the moon.

Their diagnosis of the "Manny cuts off Damon's throw from center" play, ultimately resulting in an ITP HR, was pretty spectacular too. Wish I could find it now.

Can't find the lunar eclipse clip but can find a transcript. DO: "A lunar eclipse is when the sun crosses in front of the moon, right?" Give a few seconds and Remy notes: "We wouldn't be around here very long if that happened." Eventually, it leads to the on-screen telestrator, Remy explaining to the class that "Now in YOUR scenario," as the moon, sun, and flames where the Earth would be are drawn. DO loses it, Remy follows up with "I don't have a lot of schooling, but I'll tell you what: OH MY GOD, even I knew."

As Don said on his final telecast in 2015, he notes that this 'exposed (him) for (his) lack of intelligence'. Remy remembered that he knew Orsillo was wrong 'because we'd be frying'. Don remembers it by his thought of the time: "I'm not a very smart man."

I think the boob grab is the better clip, but they're both all time excellent. I miss DO so much.

Oh my god, some how I never heard this one, but that is hysterical. Good work on the pause and response, Remy.

Watching the pizza scenario again, credit to the cameramen and production people for knowing they had something good brewing there, too. Tossing up the fan of the game graphic makes it even better. Just masterfully done all the way around.

I was thinking along the lines of: "Don, although difficult, will continue to keep us abreast of the game."

“Markakis with a single his first time up. He’ll try to make it to second base this time around.”

Hopefully DO will be back at some point; it's not easy filling space and the guy does it well. I've probably watched the pizza clip a hundred times; it's amazing.

ed - "he's the pepsi fan of the game till he gets thrown out"

Piecah pizzer.

Did the guy ever state his motivation? Was he trying to obstruct the fielder but with delayed reaction, or did he think the front row fan got an interference call and Drew out?

Or is the answer just - alcohol.

The second clip in the thread has an interview with our returning hero. He implies that the pizza-wearer was trash talking all day so he waited until his target was distracted by the foul ball before chucking the pizzer.

i always lose it when Remy pretends he’s the pizza chucker explaining his premeditated throw to his wife. “Honey, I’m going to the game today and if I see some guy...”

He almost got away with it, too.
