(TEGNA) — Major League Baseball is suspended until who knows when. The NFL season doesn't start for another five and a half months. FOX Sports broadcaster and former IU student Joe Buck doesn't have much to do these days. So, he's offering to do play-by-play of your life at home.

He hopes people who get a narration will make donations to charity.

"While we’re all quarantined right now without any sports, I’d love to get some practice reps in. Send me videos of what you’re doing at home and I’ll work on my play-by-play. Seriously!" Buck tweeted Sunday.

Buck added that all the submitted videos that he voices will be posted online. All he asks is that those who get their life narrated will donate to a charity during the quarantine.

"Even if it’s a dollar. Send something!" Buck said. He said he is donating to the St. Louis Community Fund, but he did not specify which charity people had to make their own donations to.

Buck gave a preview of what to expect when he posted a video of his wife, Michelle, in some tough negotiations with their son, Wyatt.

Several people have already posted their submissions, hoping Buck steps up to the mic for them. It seems everything is on the table.
