For Pete's Sake

‘Does he get both feet in?’ Tony Romo’s call of cat on field was wonderful

This wasn’t quite as entertaining as Kevin Harlan’s call of a fan on the field during an NFL game last season, but when you’re working a blowout game, an animal distraction is welcome.

During the Ravens’ 40-0 win over the Dolphins on Thursday, a cat ran on the field. The CBS broadcast used slow motion to show the feline footwork, and broadcaster Tony Romo then had a wonderful call of the action with observations like:

“Oooh, look at the change of direction!”

“Does he get both feet in right here at the end, Jim?!”

Here is the clip, which NFL UK shared:

Not a cat lover? Don’t worry. NFL Network reporter Stacey Dales shared video of one of her dogs intently watching the cat on television. It’s priceless:
