I love the home run call, cause you can say anything, and put the right emphasis on the remark, and it works. I mean turn any word into a verb and it fits.. he mashed, tattooed, crushed, bombed, sweatered, lambasted, eviscerated, perturbed.... they all work. A home run allows the most freedom in sports, absolutely fantastic.
