Poor Verne Lundquist. A legend of the industry getting caught in a viral Twitter moment. But, funny is funny, and if you don’t at least chuckle the first time you see this clip then you don’t know funny.
Following the initial impact, Verne is a bit stunned. His reaction to what just happened is absolutely priceless. During the broadcast he handled it well and laughed it off. After years of calling games from media row he has probably encountered his fair share of errant passes.
On another note, it’s awesome to have Verne calling March Madness games. I’m going to miss hearing his voice this fall during the SEC game of the week every Saturday afternoon.

I think I have something in my eye. Hopefully, Verne continues to call college basketball games for the foreseeable future.
