    Allusions (1)

    • Casey and Issac talk about the 1951 New York Giants and what has become known as "The Shot Heard Round The World". The Shot Heard Round The World in sports usually refers to a Bobby Thompson homerun capping a late-season run of the 1951 Giants for the NL Pennant. The title of the episode comes from a now-famous response to the game by Russ Hodges, the WMCA-AM radio announcer covering the game. The shot was in fact, literally heard 'round the world, as the broadcast was being listened to by servicemen in Korea. The term originally comes from Emerson's Concord Hymn and refers to the opening shots of the American Revolution. It has also been used to refer to the shots which killed Archduke Ferdinand and thus began World War I
