Listen to Kevin Harlan’s hilarious radio call of Football Cat during the Giants vs. Cowboys game on Monday night.
It wouldn’t be Monday Night Football without a cat running through the field … wait … that’s not normal. But on Monday that’s exactly what happened when a black cat wandered into the end zone, halting the action in the second quarter. The New York Giants were ahead at the time, but perhaps a black cat walking through the game is what the Dallas Cowboys needed to get back into the lead going into half time.
The cat, which was on the field for a few minutes before it ran off to probably where ever it came from, and of course the announcers had a field day with the puns.
Here the whole radio call, from legendary broadcaster, Kevin Harlan right here.
“The cat runs into the end zone,” he says. “Touchdown!”
This isn’t the first time Harlan’s had a classic radio call of a less than normal sport moment. Check out this one of him calling a streaker during a 2016 Monday Night Football game in San Francisco, CA.
This also isn’t the first time a cat has captured the heart of sports fans, in 2017 a cat ran onto the field during a tense moment in the Kansas City Royals vs Saint Louis Cardinals game. The bases were loaded and after the cat was captured and the game resumed, Yadier Molina hit a homer for a grand slam.
At halftime the Cowboys were up 13-12. Follow along with FanSided NFL for all your NFL news.
