Vin Scully isn’t the only baseball announcer helping people get through this national nightmare. Joe Buck is doing his part too.

Buck — who has a fantastic sense of humor, actually, which comes through loud and clear in his Twitter feed and when he’s being candid — had someone tweet at him last night that they could not wait to hear his voice again. One presumes the person tweeting that meant that he wanted baseball or football back soon, but Buck took it at face value and had a pretty dang good idea about it:

As an example, he did one from his own home:

People have started sending them videos of stuff from their house. The one I and a lot of my weird, Twitter-addicted baseball friends want to see, however, is not a video. We want to see him put voice to this famous tweet that surfaces every October when a playoff game goes past midnight and everyone wants to go to bed and/or die:

You kinda had to be there to really get the full impact of it, but if you’re a late night postseason baseball watcher you can feel that tweet in your bones.

Anyway, here’s hoping he does some good ones.
