Want To Win Cardinals Headphones?

Now here is something you definitely want: these Cardinals headphones.

And, even better, we’re giving away a pair for free.

The headphones are from BiGR Audio, the makers of the official headphones for Major League Baseball. They have the same tech specs as Beats by Dre, plus come in a Cardinals collector’s bamboo box. You can even use them with your iPhone, iPad or iPod. And, if you use them with your phone, they even have a built-in call answer button and microphone.

If you don’t win the ones we’re giving away — details on that in a second — you can purchase them for $49 right now, a savings of $100. They’re available here. For the discount, use the code “bigrcards” after you click “Add to Cart.”

Remember too, the holidays are coming … gifts are needed, although of course you need a pair for yourself too.

How to win

What else would tie in perfectly with Cardinals headphones than your favorite Cardinals call? Maybe it’s one from Jack Buck — plenty of memorable ones to choose from there — or Mike Shannon or Joe Buck. Or even Dan McLaughlin. (You might get extra points for coming up with a memorable Danny Mac call …)

Share your favorite call in the comments below — just the words, or a link to the call if you prefer. (The Internet is magical — you can find anything.) After Friday night’s amazing comeback victory, I’m sure many of the Cardinals classic calls are top of mind.

And that’s it. Only one entry per person, and entries are due by 7 p.m. Central on Tuesday, Oct. 16, since that’s an off day in the NLCS. We will have a random drawing of all the entries and post the winner.

So think about your favorite moment — Game One is still hours and hours away, so you need a way to pass the time — and enter now!

  1. My favorite call would have to be Jack Buck’s call on Ozzie Smith’s HR in the 1985 NLCS against the Dodgers. “Go crazy, folks! Go crazy, folks!” I heard this call live on the radio while I was driving home from work in St. Louis and I was actually close enough to the stadium when the call was made so I could not only hear the call on the radio, but the fans going crazy in the stadium. It was electrifying!

  3. My favorite is also from Joe Buck and also from a Freese at ball during the 2011 Game 6. This time it was the Walk Off Home Run. The Call was simply… “We Will See You Tomorrow Night.” I had chills, because I had just seen someone post a video link to the same exact call that Jack Buck made in Game 6 of the 1991 World Series when Kirby Puckett hit a walk-off. It was almost 20 years to the day. I had to think Joe had been waiting to make that same call his father had made.

  5. I’m going out of the box for this call…it wasn’t a Cardinal broadcaster, so if it makes me ineligible…bummer. Skip Carey broad casting a 1984 game with bases loaded and Joaquin Andujar at bat. Mentions that the fans are in an agitated state and that if Joaquin gets a hold of one they will be in a frenzy. Next pitch = Grand slam Andujar. Frenzy ensues. I laughed for three innings.

  7. This was one of the best and one of my favorite — an otherwise ordinary August game from 2007: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcWO0eBjh6Y

    And this was one of the damn saddest but a favorite because of the sheer poignancy of it all: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDpnD2aS_rU

    Then there’s Jimmy the Leader in Game 6 of the 2004 LCS against Houston: http://mlb.mlb.com/video/play.jsp?content_id=19998633

    Chills, goosebumps, tears from any of these three.

  9. I don’t care for Joe Buck, but as Craig catches the ball to end the World Series. “What a team, what a ride. The Cardinals are World Champs in 2011.” To me it summed up everything that was Cardinals baseball last year, it was an amazing ride that I for one am privileged to have witnessed.

  11. Mine isn’t a call you’ll hear over and over. I picked it for the emotion and excitement (and a little humor). This one is fairly new but it’s the call when Jon Jay made the juggling catch of the line drive in center field in Houston. The catch itself was amazing but I love the excitement as they realize he actually caught it. This clip has all versions of the call but I like KMOX’s John Rooney with Mike Shannon adding in, “you’ll see this one on Looney Toons.”

  13. One of my favorite Jack Buck calls was when Kirk Gibson batted in the 9th in a WS game against the A’s. Gibson was hurt and limped to the plate as a pinch hitter. He hit a game winning walk-off homerun. When the ball went over the fence, Jack described what happened and then said “I don’t believe what I just saw!”

  15. I moved to St Louis during the World Series last year. I remember being all alone in the city and watching the game. Hearing Joe Buck’s “We Will See You Tomorrow Night” really hit home for me! My new city was on the verge of awesomeness (and is again)!

  16. Hearing Joe Buck say, “What a team, what a ride!” at the end of Game 7 2011, still makes me choke up. Because, really, it was. 🙂

  18. 1985 Game 5 of the NLCS. Bottom of the ninth with one out. Game is tied at 2. My brother (8 years old) and I (10 years old) are watching the game as Ozzie “The Wizard” Smith steps to the plate. The Oz is not noted for his power but as a 10 year old desperation kicks in. The count is 1 and 2 and I make a promise to Ozzie, that to this day, I haven’t kept. Praying to the baseball Gods, and speaking to the television monitor, I promised Ozzie Smith if he hit a home run I would pay him $75.
    To this day this is one of the most fond memories of my childhood with my brother. We joke about it nearly every time we talk baseball. Some day I will send The Wizard a check with a thank you note attached. My love of Cardinals baseball has never diminished!

    Here is the call.

  20. I was a casual Cardinals fan for years until the 2005 season. Before that, I don’t recall ever jumping around my living room and screaming at my tv as much as I did for Pujol’s Game 5 homer. Plus, if you listen closely, you can hear Brad Lidge’s dreams being crushed. Here’s the call, courtesy of Mike Shannon.
