Man, it feels good to hear Kuip on the call again.

Duane Kuiper’s return was made so much sweeter by hearing his iconic “It. Is. Outta here!” as LaMonte Wade Jr. went deep in the 6th.
Having surprised everyone with his return Saturday, Kuiper left his partner Mike Krukow speechless. The duo hugged it out after a sudden entrance to the broadcast booth pregame, a moment that Kruk later said made him feel like a “buffoon.”
“I’m the only guy in the Bay Area that didn’t know he was coming back! He got me good, it was a sight for sore eyes,” Kruk said recalling the moment.
As the legendary duo went through business as usual, Wade Jr. gave Kuip a chance to do what he does best, and Kruk was happy to hear it.
“Good call partner,” Krukow remarked lovingly.
Yeah, Kuip, good call.
