David Freese's Walk-Off Home Run, BBC Style

The last few days have been a blur of melancholy and denial for baseball fans, so perhaps you missed Deadspin’s video post of the BBC’s Simon Brotherton calling David Freese’s walk-off home run in Game Six. I would definitely love to catch a full game as narrated by Brotherton and his color guy, especially for the “came up with Minnesota, bounced around between Seattle, New York, and Baltimore before getting a shot this season with Cincinnati” moments.

If that’s the case, enjoy…and imagine for a second what a British Vin Scully might sound like.

Okay, can we just talk about how perfect the St.Louis Cardinals are?

You’ve got this bullpen that is just mind blowing, not to mention that they are ADORABLE

Ya got Kyle McClellan delivering drinks on a motorized cooler

We’ve got a pitcher who can hit

And did I mention that he’s totally perfect and adorable in every sense of the word?

yeah we also have handshakes that are so ridiculous, it’s awesome

Then there is Chris Carpenter, who is so beyond badass that its absurd

Yet he is like a perfect father and totally sweet

Then you’ve got this badass mofo over here named Jason Motte who can throw over 100mph and is totally perfect too

And then you have thee most badass catcher of all time right here who has five gold gloves and one hell of a reputation. You don’t steal on Yadi. baseball players just know that.

Does that mofo look like he wants to be messed with? No. I don’t think so

And then we have this perfect heart breaker (Bitch, you wish you were as perfect as David Freese)

Oh yeah, they also dress up.

And one more reason why the St.Louis Cardinals are perfect……
