Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the sports world is trying to keep themselves occupied at all times. This isn’t easy or ideal for anyone, but it’s the cards we have been dealt for the foreseeable future. Fox Sports play-by-play announcer Joe Buck is absolutely feeling that itch to get back to work, and he’s doing all he can to pass the time and support the cause.

“I have good news for you,” Buck posted on social media. “While we’re all quarantined right now without any sports, I’d love to get some practice reps in. Send me videos of what you’re doing at home and I’ll work on my play-by-play. Seriously!”

No way, right? The famous announcer isn’t really going to call home video like it’s an NFL or MLB playoff game, right? Guess again.

The only catch is any video that gets posted, the sender has to donate to a cause during quarantine, even if it’s just a dollar. Buck announced he is pledging to the St. Louis Community Fund and started off the new trend with his family in his own home.

Staying at home can be entertaining. It can also be incredibly boring. The Buck family, including Joe, his wife Michelle and son Wyatt, are living proof. It’s only natural Buck’s first video is about them, too.

The commentary is pretty spot-on as well.

“This is called negotiation, ladies and gentlemen. Michelle, on the left, is trying to prepare dinner, Wyatt, on the right, fighting back a yawn dressed like, kind of a half-assed Fred Flintstone. And he now, he wants to watch Blippi, folks. Oh, and he’s hit his mom! He has hit his mom. Mom is playing it up. Wyatt is crying. All hell has broken loose inside this house, quarantine Day 7. For us, it’s about Day 13.”

COVID-19 might keep him at home, but it’s not stopping Buck from preparing for the upcoming Major League Baseball season, the World Series and the Super Bowl in 2021.

His Twitter feed is full of other home videos he’s practicing on, too.
