The Gus Johnson story you’ve got to read

Maybe you’re like me and you’ve become a recent fan of Gus Johnson who called Washington’s game Saturday.
If so, then you’ll enjoy this feature on the CBS broadcaster from New York Times writer Greg Bishop.
Robert Thompson, the director for television and popular culture at Syracuse University told the Times: “He seems better at responding emotionally to a sporting event than anybody I’ve heard. If he read ‘Hamlet,’ we’d all be into Shakespeare.”
The NY Times also offers an interactive site to hear Johnson’s famous calls.
And because a few folks asked, here’s a link to Washington’s Bob Rondeau call of Isaiah Thomas’ game-winning buzzer-beater against Arizona. Thanks to KJR’s Dave Mahler and Washington IMG College for the link.
