Frank the Tank

And I thought the best impersonator named Frank, was Caliendo. I was watching TVG this afternoon (muted of course since Carothers was on --kidding) and I caught a glimpse of an interview with Frank Mirahmadi, track announcer at Turf Paradise. They were discussing his call last Sunday of the $50,000 Hasta La Vista Stakes, a turf marathon that went well over 3 minutes. If you haven't seen it yet, it's a gem. If you have, carry on.

(Hat tip to luisbelosi on youtube: "He used nearly two dozen voice impressions during the 1 7/8-mile turf marathon: Marv Albert, Tony Calo, Mark Johnson, Richard Grunder, Michael Wrona, Larry Collmus, Keith Jones, Dick Stockton, Jack Buck, Hank Stram, Phil Georgeff, Dave Johnson, Robert DeNiro, Marlon Brando, Andy Rooney, D. Wayne Lukas, Mike Battaglia, Vic Stauffer, Rodney Dangerfield, Trevor Denman, and Ed Burgart.") Whew, and at the end he makes a nice tribute to the late Luke Kruytbosch who passed away last year. In staying with Keith's fun friday theme, this one's a beaut...just wondering why he didn't work in the Terminator when it is the Hasta La Vista!

Thanks for posting that. Mirahmadi is a genius. Great handicapper, great announcer and super on the impressions. And "God bless the soul of Luke Kruytbosch," indeed.
