That was just Phil's luck. It was actually a 'Holy Cow' they presented to him on Phil Rizzuto day...it could only happen to Phil. Listening to him do Yankee games was great. He was always saying something wrong, or funny and running out of the booth before the end of the game to avoid traffic on the GWB. A few examples:
"And the ball is out here. No, it's not. Yes it is. No, it's not. What happened."
"Well, that kind of puts a damper on even a Yankees win."
