Verne Lundquist Taking A Basketball Square In The Face, In Extreme Slow Motion

Now that Vin Scully’s retired, Verne Lundquist reigns supreme as the patriarch of sports broadcasting. The CBS legend got a bit more into the game than usual, though, before today’s broadcast of the Notre Dame-WVU game in Buffalo. Ouch!


This is a Deadspin Video, in which strange sports moments are slowed down to ridiculous speeds and matched with indie music. This video features “Say Uncle” by Vienna Teng. See previous episodes here. A Spotify playlist of every song used in Deadspin Videos can be accessed here.


Timothy Burke is formerly Deadspin's Video Director.
