Ump's 'Whoomp! (There It Is)' call

Well, now this is just ridiculous/hilarious.

In case you weren't alive in 1993, Tag Team's "Whoomp! (There it is)" was, like, THE jam that year. It was impossible to escape and lived on through the rest of the 90s as a jock jam.

Alas, 20 years is a long time, and there have been a lot of catchy arena-rap songs made since then. "Whoomp!" has faded into the stuff of VH1. Fortunately, theatrical umpires haven't.

A brief sample.

And just for good measure, the mother of them all.
