Merrill Reese enters HOF after calling Eagles games for 40 years

After calling Philadelphia Eagles games for 40 years, Merrill Reese will join the team's Hall of Fame when the Eagles face off with the Green Bay Packersnext week on Monday Night Football on ESPN.

According to the Atlantic City Press, his first game was on Dec. 10, 1977, a 17-14 victory over the New York Giants. Sunday's contest against the Seattle Seahawks was his 645th consecutive game including regular season and playoffs.

Reese is well-known for his "It's gooood!" field goal call and doesn't plan on cutting his career short any time soon, as he told the Atlantic City Press.

"This is the job I've always wanted," Reese said. "I've got no plans to retire. They're going to have to remove me with a crane."
