Joe Buck recently spoke with Colin Cowherd about his illustrious career and there was quite the revelation that will make him more relatable to the fans.
Anyone who has been to a live sporting event has likely engaged in an adult beverage or three, but did you know that Buck was included in that while on the job?
Buck revealed he and Troy Aikman would down some drinks in the broadcast booth in order to calm their nerves.
The drink of choice? Tequila/Grand Marnier/grapefruit juice.

“We have had that glass of bourbon in the booth,” Buck told Cowherd during a conversation about building chemistry with Aikman. “Although it’s not bourbon, it’s tequila, splash of Grand Marnier and grapefruit juice.
“I went through a couple years where in the first inning of every postseason baseball game, I had the runner go get the biggest beer that the stadium sold. And I had it sitting there, and I would sip it from time to time to remind myself to relax and have fun. I’m just doing a game.”
We love to hear it.
And that could explain a lot about the occasional mix-ups. But hey, we are all only human.
