sports tidbits and clarification
2) Now that Niehaus is in the Hall of Fame, I think it's time to put Skip Caray or Tom Cheek in the Hall of Fame. Skip Caray passed away last night, he was the Braves' announcer for at least 20 years. He should be in next summer in Cooperstown. Tom Cheek, who also recently passed away, was the Blue Jays announcer for many years. He called two world champion teams, 1992 and 1993 Blue Jays and called Joe Carter's famous home run in Game 6 of the 1993 World Series against Mitch Williams.
3) Enough with Favre. Mad Dog, you and I are in agreement on this. He isn't the second coming of Paul Bunyan, let alone Paul Revere.
