Out of the Blue

Thanks to Quboid for noticing that the hidden counter at the bottom of this page surpassed the 666,666,666 mark, meaning the site has had over two-thirds of a billion visits since 1996. This makes me recall looking at that counter years ago when it passed the 36,000 mark and being shocked because I never imagined it would get to that point (so you can imagine my current level of disbelief). Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the support over all these years.

Cosell was awesome.

And here I believed I was one of the only people who thought that. Seems like everyone I know hated him. :/

Here are my opinions on some of the announcers being discussed here:

Loved Cosell. Love Marv Albert. Hate Joe Buck. Used to like Tim McCarver when he began doing Mets games, but before long his attention to detail gave way to pedantry. He's become positively tedious.

Marv Albert is one of those that I am indifferent to.... definitely has a distinctive voice though. As for for McCarver..that is a perfect way to explain it Blue. Some people just get a bit bitter with age, I think McC is one those people. It gets old fast.
