Must Be in the Front Row

Jay Jaffe hipped me to this from Miller Park Drunk: 10 Reasons Bob Uecker is better than whoever your announcer is.

Most tremendously excellent.

"10. Bob had a woman follow him to the point that charges were filed (later dropped) and a restraining order was placed against her banning her from contacting Bob or going to any Brewers games. Somehow I don't see anyone doing that to Ken Harrelson."

Not without an intent to commit murder.

Hawk has got to be the worst one out there.

i bookmarked this link way back in '03 (seems weird calling 2003 "way back"...). it's freaking hilarious. like genuine belly laughing funny. i didn't have the time to read thru it again right now, but it's really awesome. i hope you all enjoy it!

[2] okay, just read again. not as funny as i remembered. maybe i read them too many times over the years. still fun to peruse thru some of uke's quotes...

Trevor Hoffman, after giving up 2 homers in one inning last night, gave up another dinger this afternoon ... that is *6* in 9 innings of work this year.

When some folks lose it ... they LOSE it .... he hasn't had a WHIP higher than 1.18 since 1993!
