Raftery and His Onions

Mar 26, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The New York Times takes a look at some of the unusual phrases used by basketball announcer Bill Raftery. For example, a player who shows guts has “onions,” and when Siena’s Ronald Moore hit a last-minute three-pointer during the NCAA tournament, it was “Oh, onions! Double order,” for the first time ever, the paper says.
