Tim McCarver is a professional, and even sometimes professionals are allowed to make a mistake every now and then. On Wednesday night during Game 1 of the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Detroit Tigers McCarver may have made a mistake, or one of the best jokes we have heard in a while. Either way we love the guy and he played it off with a big laugh. Our friends at Awful Announcing point out that “Barry Manilow did play at AT&T Park in 2007 and the fans apparently did chant “Barry, Barry!” The exchange went like the following (which you can also see in the below video:
“They used to say it for somebody else around here,” Buck said.
To which McCarver replied: “When Barry Manilow was playing in a concert.”
Of course! You remember baseball’s all-time home run king, Barry Manilow.
“Or Barry Bonds,” Buck teased.
Later in the inning, Buck said to McCarver: “Come back to me over there.”
“Sorry, it’s one of those moments,” McCarver laughed.
Yeah, one of those senior moments.
