Best EVER!

Whoa, I was trying to figure out why Kalas would be mentioned in this thread, until I saw "Best EVER!". I once had a fishing guide in Montana who sounded exactly like Harry Kalas. I'd be reeling in a rainbow and could picture Kalas calling the action on the radio. The guide had no idea who I was talking about.

This one's great. Sorry that it's in Dutch, but I think you'll get the point.  ;)

I'm not trying to be mysterious about it, it's just that what I do is tough to explain.

I just read that Harry Kalas died today:

Harry Kalas, the voice of the Phillies since 1971, died April 13 after passing out in the press box during a Phillies - Nationals game. Kalas worked 27 seasons with the late Richie Ashburn and has called more than 5,000 Phillies games.

Goodnight, sports announcer man.

Madden announces retirement.  I thought he was great with the exception of the last few years and as I've said he's a friend of family but I know some of you are probably happy.  I think it was time, too.

WTF is a goaste? Is it like a pink sock?

Anyone hear that Madden is retiring and Chris Collinsworth is taking his spot?  Who wants to chew on this one for a minute?

I have a love/hate thing going on with Collinsworth, he's from Cincy but I used to hate him when he had his own call in radio show in Cincy and I was living there.  Now that he's moved on, he's become a little less snotty, but he can still get on my nerves.  Definitely a step down from Madden, however.

I think Collinsworth is 1 of the better announcers these days. He actually knows what he's talking about and makes sense.

Its hard to believe, but even over the last couple years, there was still a good dozen who were worse than Madden.

I think Collinsworth is about 3 steps up from Madden. He definitely isnt worse than Madden

Still the best.  I wish he'd start calling more games.  Seriously

I know many have seen this but I can watch it over and over again.

Is it true that Screamin' A is leaving the ESPN sports media hegemony.
