Skip Caray

Well, I'm sure everyone has heard the news by now, sad times in Atlanta. I was born in 1978, and Skip has been broadcasting Brave's games since 1976, so I haven't known the Braves without him. It's silly I guess, but it seems a bit of my childhood died along with Skip. That nasal voice has been in the background in my house for 30 years, from the day I came home from the hospital until just last week. RIP Skip.

"A lotta room in right-center, if he hits one there we can dance in the streets. The 2-1. Swung, line drive left field! One run is in! Here comes Bream! Here's the throw to the plate! He is...safe! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win!...Braves win! They may have to hospitalize Sid Bream; he's down at the bottom of a huge pile at the plate. They help him to his feet. Frank Cabrera got the game winner! The Atlanta Braves are National League champions again! This crowd is going berserk, listen!"

Morgan Freeman is not dead, just some broken bones, bleh. Skip Caray was the son of Harry Caray and the Atlanta Braves baseball announcer for 32 years. The Atlanta Braves are a baseball team in case you didnt know .

That was one of the best ballgames I have ever seen. Incredible seeing Francisco Cabrera pull a hit out of his @ss.

I will never forget that particular game. My wife got p***** Off at me, cause I was screaming in the living room.
