Not the last. Reminds me of that commercial "Well played, Mauer..."

Loved that one.

Not sure how you would find the footage of the game from just after when Smalley (who was in the booth instead of Blyleven) talked about it. He started by pointing out that it was so subtle that most people had probably missed it and just went on chuckling about how it was a very Mauer moment. The phrase I liked was when he appreciatively noted how he (Mauer) is "just good at 'stuff'." Was a fun moment.
