Sports broadcaster Joe Buck stays fresh by doing pay-by-play of Americans' quarantine activities

With the sports world on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, broadcaster Joe Buck is getting a bit antsy.

Fox's top play-by-play man misses his job so much that he's taken to calling the ordinary lives of quarantined Americans.

On Tuesday, Buck tweeted that he was looking to get some "practice reps" in while he waits for the sports world to resume. He asked for his followers to send videos of how they're passing the time for him to narrate.

Buck got things started with highlights from his own home — a "negotiation" between his wife and son that got out of hand fast.

Buck has also "called" a game of fetch, a game of darts and some pick-up football.

Buck is still accepting video submissions that he will narrate. All he asks is that anyone who submits a video pledge to donate to a cause that will help others during the quarantine.
