Audio: Minor League PXP Announcer Quotes CM Punk While Quitting On-Air

This is Qumar Zaman's last day on the job as play-by-play announcer for the Lake County Fielders.
Zaman left no doubt about that as he was quoting lines from the now epic CM Punk promo (included below) on WWE Raw a few weeks ago, during the broadcast.
I'm all for standing up for what you believe in, but it really takes some of the sting out of your impassioned speech when announce that you're going to watch a wrestling PPV with your friends over the weekend.
The round of applause in the booth when he finishes up is a nice touch though.
The real winner in this situation seems to be CM Punk.
The guy cuts a great promo, wins the WWE title last night, and inspired a minor league announcer to quit his job while making people aware that the Lake County Fielders are every bit the major league catastrophe the Dodgers are.
