The “announcer jinx” is a very real thing, and Joe Buck just proved it.
During the rare (maybe we should stop calling it rare at this point) Tuesday night football game between the Baltimore Ravens (6-5) and Dallas Cowboys (3-8), Buck and Troy Aikman were discussing Ravens kicker Justin Tucker.
As a fan of the game, I always cringe when I hear a color commentator discuss a kicker’s streaks or success while he is attempting a field goal or extra point. Buck does more than just that. He goes the extra mile.
Check out this incredibly obvious and unnecessary jinx:
Come on, really?
The game is quickly approaching halftime, and Baltimore currently leads the Cowboys 14-10. If the Ravens end up losing by two points or less, we will 100 percent blame Buck.
You have been warned, Joe.
