Munson was the best

POSTED: November 21, 2011 2:48 p.m.

Being from South Carolina and being a diehard Gamecock fan, I've never cared much for the Georgia Bulldogs.In fact, they rank No. 2 after Clemson on the list of college football programs I really don't like.

But I know a great announcer when I hear one, and Larry Munson, who passed away Sunday at the age of 89, was the best I ever heard.

My favorite call -- I'm paraphrasing it from memory, so the quote below isn't verbatim  -- came as the Gamecocks knocked off the Bulldogs back in the late 90s.

"They're tearing the hearts out of us, just tearing them out of us ... right there on the field ..." Munson said as time ticked down. "They've torn our hearts out and they're stomping on them."

Here's a link to some of Munson's greatest calls.
