SUPER BOWL LVII
Is the NFL ‘DOINK!’ the best sound in sport?
The 2023 Super Bowl got off to a flyer with early scores tied at 7-7 and the Chiefs with a chance to pop over a go-ahead FG. But the goalpost was hit.
Harrison Butker of the Kansas City Chiefs looked to give his team a lead after an early touchdown and conversion for either side had us tied at 7-7. But the kicker slammed his effort against the left goalpost, and we heard that very satisfying (well, not for the kicking team) noise, generally referred to as ‘DOINK!’
Sports noises we love
A pool ball slamming into the pocket. A tennis ball powering into the net cord. A clean-as-you-like homer thudding off the hardwood or metal alloy bat. So many sporting noises give us pleasure.
It’s fair to say, Twitter loves a ‘DOINK!’
