Broadcasting icon Joe Buck has his work cut out for himself over the next week.
As USA Today's Art Stapelton noted, Buck will call a major sporting event every day next week for FOX:
- On Sunday, Buck and Troy Aikman will call America's Game of the Week, as Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers travel to Tampa Bay to face Tom Brady and the Buccaneers at 4:25 p.m. ET.
- On Monday, Buck and Aikman will have a quick turnaround, calling the Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills matchup at 5:00 p.m. ET.
- On Tuesday, Buck will have to shift gears entirely, calling Game 1 of the World Series on FOX. We don't yet know what two teams will be playing in the World Series, but the series is slated to be played at the neutral site of Globe Life Field in Texas.
- On Wednesday, Buck, along with Hall of Famer John Smoltz, will call Game 2 of the World Series.
- On Thursday, Buck will have the honor of calling an NFC East Game on Thursday Night Football, with the Philadelphia Eagles set to host the New York Giants.
- On Friday, Buck heads back to baseball, as the World Series resumes with Game 3.
- On Saturday, Buck will call Game 4 of the World Series
Unless there is a sweep in the World Series, Buck will be back at it on Sunday, Oct. 25, when Game 5 is currently scheduled for.
While this is probably the most hectic week of Buck's broadcasting career, he's shown in the past that he's capable of managing an incredibly heavy workload. In October of 2012, he called a San Francisco 49ers' regular season game and a San Francisco Giants' playoff game on the same day. Certainly, though, FOX will be getting their money's worth on the 51-year-old this month.
