I don't even know who's calling this game, but I just flipped on the end of Kansas-Texas Tech. Jarrius Jackson slices through the lane untouched for the layup, and we get this call on the replay:On the offensive rebound, watch Kansas! They look like Buddy Holly in an ice storm!
So they looked terrified and/or dead? Frozen?
How long until I can bust out "They look like Aaliyah in a twin-engine Cessna"?
It just occurred to me that he's comparing a team's entire defense
to Buddy Holly
Update: the man responsible for this gem is Fran Fraschilla.
Second update: according to reader John, "Apparently there's a Buddy Holly statue outside (near?) the Texas Tech arena, and there was ice on it. So he was probably referencing that."
I prefer to keep thinking he was talking about The Day the Music Died.
