There’s an awesome article in The Wall Street Journal about biased baseball announcers. It focuses on my favorite baseball announcer of all time, Hawk Harrelson, finding him to be the biggest homer in baseball. Hawk’s response? “That’s the biggest compliment you could give me, to call me the biggest homer in baseball.”
I don’t usually read the comments, but there was a good one here, from Anne Halverson:
The White Sox is my team, so I honestly didn’t know there was any other way to hear a game! Now that I know, I’m glad I hear a biased game! When I watch the games, I feel what Hawk feels, so what he says is usually exactly what I want to hear. Its like watching the game with your Dad, and why would you want it any other way?
I’ve mentioned my love for Hawk and his homerism before and everything I said then is still true now.
Here’s hoping we (apparently I’m a homer, too) squeak by Detroit and make it to the playoffs.
