      In other words, these are Hawk-isms.

      I like Hawk for some reason, not because he's a great announcer but it's a fun time just listening to him.
      My Top 4 funniest BBF posts ever:

      1) "plZ dOn;t' pOsT LikE tHIs n e mOr!"

      2) "The teams play 1962 games in 180 days."

      3) "Stadiums don't move silly, people do."

      4) "Once again you quibble, because it is I who speaks."

      5) Almost anything RuthMayBond says...

                Well, technically, you should immediately follow that with a Y-Y-YE-ESSSS!!!:gt :gt :gt
                But, we'll forgive you, though.
                I think that one was coming near the bottom. I noticed after the second day that he's going in alphabetical order.
                Johnson and now Goligoski gone.
                I hope that's all.

                  He uses Catbird Seat, too? Red Barber used that. James Thurber took that phrase for the title of an excellent short story, peppering it with a few of Barber's catchphrases.

                  Joe Gary MCA Emanuel Sonny Dave Earl Stan

                    Warning: Hawk hates the dreaded lead-off walk and is not afraid to say it.
