All the Proof Necessary
Tim McCarver was never too bright. Perhaps that's why Steve Carlton wanted him for his personal catcher. But I fear that whatever mental ability he once had has been eaten by Norwegian wharf rats. A few minutes ago, right after the Tigers got the final out, he "informed" the viewing public, as if he were sharing some sort of expertise, that the win was Detroit's first World Series victory at home since they clinched the championship in 1984. Since this is the first time that Detroit has played in the World Series since 1984, however, that news probably didn't come as a tremendous shock to anyone who has a passing knowledge of baseball history or, barring that, merely read the newspaper or watched ESPN prior to the start of the Series. I've never like McCarver's partner Joe Buck, despite that fact that his father was one of the classic announcers. But it pains me to have come to detest McCarver's voice, considering how much I liked him when I was a Phillies fan in elementary school.

Lunch tomorrow or do you need time to recover from your travels?

Fillings in the AM, so Wednesday would be better.

My mom is in town starting Tuesday. Can we do next Monday instead? That would be fine with me, and I may need a chat as the big day(s) approach.

Okay, sounds good. I'll plan on it. I need to read some Butler. And some Marx. Marx. Damn.

I hear a lot of complaints about McCarver and Joe Morgan, but I don't really see the function of the color commentator as essential; thus I always had a soft spot for Harry Carrey.

I know people who complain about Joe Morgan, but I think he's great. I love listening to him when he works with Jon Miller. Vin Scully is the master, of course, even if he is Dodger Blue.
