Just curious, this might be a stupid question but it's bothering me a lot. As we all know, Marty uses "And this one belongs to the Reds!" to end every Reds game. I have heard the story from him at various times on air about how he first used the phrase his first or second season to describe an exciting Reds win. I have always assumed this was his orginal tagline and he created it himself.
This afternoon I bought MLB Audio from mlb.com for the season. I've been listening to various games this afternoon as I do work and I have to admit I love hearing some of the announcers live that I have never heard before. I was listening to the Giants/Brewers game which the Giants won. At the end of the game, there was a double play and John Miller ended the game with "And this one belongs to the Giants." Like I said, this was one of the few times I've listened to games other the Reds on the radio. Does John always use this phrase and, for that matter, do other announcers? I've always enjoyed Marty using it and thought it was his own tagline and his signature call.
Any thoughts or help on this one?
