The dynamic between Gorilla and Gene is really interesting. I believe Gene was brought in to be the play by play guy, but he often seemed to forget that was his role. So, Gorilla would pick up the match call, and they would generally trade back and forth on the call, which makes the commentary somewhat disjointed at times. You're absolutely correct though, Gene would fall back to his little catch phrases, and it really came off sloppy and lazy. "OH, we've got a SHOOTOUT in the Garden this week, folks!"
