OSGOOD WON’T KNOW WHETHER TO CRY OR WIND HIS WATCH: 

Similar to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ legendary announcer, Myron Cope, if you don’t live in Pittsburgh you probably haven’t heard much about the incomparable Mike Lange, the long time play-by-play man for the Penguins.

If you have yet to indulge in the wacky one linerism that defines the calls oozing from Mike Lange’s tongue, then you are in for a treat. 

Check out the compilation below:

In the spirit of the Stanley Cup Finals, I have worked up some of my own calls that I think would make Mike Lange proud.  I did say he was incomparable, however he actually lives in the same development as me, so that make me qualified to try my very own:  

  • Put the coffee on Ethel, dessert has been served
  • Someone call him a cab, he just got shut off
  • Mash those potatoes Ma and save me a beater
  • Stroke the kitty cause that shot was PURRRRFECT

There you have it.  Just a few attempts at Mike Langeisms – for better or for worse . . . 

Think you can do better?
