VIDEO: Lax announcer says B.I.G. lyric after goal

Posted by Chip Patterson

Everyone has their favorite broadcaster. Some subscribe to the belief that a broadcaster is like an official, they should do their job so well that you only remember the action on the field. Those fans want play-by-play and color commentary that helps them understand and interact with the sporting event.

At some point, sports commentary became an art form. And thus the "BOOYA!" generation of sportscasting began. As sports media and popular culture continue to grow closer together, the implementation of references into a game's call have increased.

That brings us to the enthusiastic efforts of an announcer during a recent lacrosse match for the Boys' Latin School of Maryland. Calling play-by-play for high school lacrosse may be a stepping stone for this announcer, who channels his inner Notorious B.I.G. after this fourth quarter goal.
