The French broadcast booth went completely nuts for Vlad Guerrero Jr.'s walk-off homer

In Game 1 of the Blue Jays' two-game exhibition series in Montreal, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was greeted with a standing ovation. In Game 2 on Tuesday night, he made the baseball world's dreams come true -- launching a dramatic walk-off homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth.
The moment meant a lot, both to the Guerreros ...

... and to the baseball fans of Montreal, who got to watch one of their favorite sons not only return to Olympic Stadium but go deep just like his dad used to. If you'd like to get an idea of just how much it meant, click play on the video in the main slot above and listen to the French broadcast booth's call of the dinger ... then do it again about 50 more times, just for good measure. (For those wondering, the color commentator in the background is shouting "Bon soir" -- french for "goodnight.")
