I am king of this land for as far as the ball shall travel!
Of course, I do remember one instance where two players (I forget which game it was and when) went back-to-back, Kenny got all in the moment and ad-libbed. It went something like this: First Batter: I AM KING OF THE DIAMOND! BRING ME YOUR FINEST MEATS AND CHEESES FOR A CLUBHOUSE FEAST! Next Batter: NO, >I< AM KING OF THE DIAMOND! BRING ME...UH, WHOOOOO! After the highlight, it went to Dan Patrick who just calmly said, "Uh, yeah. You go Kenny."
I believe it goes along these lines...I am king of the diamond. Let there be a grand clubhouse feast. Bring me the finest meats and cheeses in all the land.
The line is.... "I am the king of the diamond, bring me all your finest meats and cheeses, there will be an abundant post-game feast"
The line is, "I am king of the diamond! Let there be an abundant clubhouse feast with the finest meats and cheeses of all the land!
I remember: "I am king of the diamond! Let there be [a / an abundant] clubhouse feast [featuring / with] the finest meats and cheeses in all the land.
When Raul Mondesi hit a walk off.... "I AM KING OF THE DIAMOND. LET THERE BE AN ABUNDANT POSTGAME FEAST!"
