Merrill and Mike’s Moment of the Game
Since we are South Jersey’s radio home for Philadelphia Eagles football, Merrill Reese and Mike Quick grace our airwaves each week.
With that in mind, I have introduced a new feature for our Philadelphia Eagles coverage for the 2012 NFL season.
Merrill and Mike have called many games over the years, from meaningless preseason games in August to meaningful playoff games in January. But it’s the spontaneous, off-the-cuff conversations and remarks the two make in game that make them the best pair of broadcasters in Philadelphia sports.
It could have been an awful penalty the replacement officials called on the Eagles, there were a lot to choose from, or it could have been the Clay Harbor TD reception late in the 4th quarter to win the game.
But for Week One's narrow victory against the Cleveland Browns, our moment happened at the very beginning of the game during the coin toss.
What they are referring to is this egg-on-face moment brought to you by Hasselbeck in an NFC Playoff game. It actually comes full circle back to Philadelphia as former Eagles CB Al Harris intercepts Hasselbeck in overtime for a game-wining touchdown.
