Courtesy of Brandon Marcello and The Slophouse blog, we came across this compilation of some of Paul Eells' memorable radio calls from the last seven years. Good stuff. Fall afternoons just aren't the same without Eells' trademark celebration of the Hogs entering the end zone.
According to Marcello, KATV's Web site will post additional compilations as the week progresses. This weekend, a golf tournament and celebrity softball game will be held in Cabot to commemorate Eells and raise money for broadcast journalism majors.
For our money, Eells' most memorable on-air moment was his radio call of U.S. Reed's half-court buzzer-beater in the NCAA Tournament, which you can hear by clicking here. Hard to believe that was more than 27 years ago.
