With sports on hiatus, it’s time to reminisce.

That’s what Giants broadcaster Duane Kuiper did on Tuesday when he joined the Murph & Mac Show and was asked to make a list of his three favorite Giant games that he’s attended.

“No. 1 would be (Madison) Bumgarner’s seventh game in Kansas City,” Kuiper said referring to the 2014 World Series clincher. “For me I don’t think it gets any better than that. No. 2 would probably be 756 with Bonds and No. 3 would be Matt Cain’s perfect game.

“I mean the list could be 50,” Kuip concluded.

Kuiper reflected on Cain’s perfecto on June 13, 2012.

“With the excitement of Gregor Blanco’s catch and even a really difficult play to end the game by (Joaquín) Arias at third. Just watching and being able to broadcast that game was just the thrill of a lifetime, and then watching his family come out of the stands, it’s pretty hard to beat that one. Plus he’s a really special guy in all of our hearts.”

Here are videos of all three memorable moments:
