Totally unexpected. Dave Niehaus died today at 74 years of age. It seriously made me sad. I scoured youtube and couldn't find one of his famous "GET OUT THE RYE BREAD AND MUSTARD, GRANDMA, IT'S A GRAAAAAAND SALAMI!!!!" calls, but I did find one. And at least it's a good one. Rest in Peace, Dave. You were one of the GREAT ones.

RIP. Seems like a lot of the great baseball announcers are starting to pass away, guess thats what happens when you have old guys.

Dan Fouts died?

I prefer to be called an asshole, but either way, I am what I am.

Even to my boy.

I'm a long time Mariners fan. My whole baseball watching career I heard his voice the most.

Well, I knew it couldn't have been that shit-for-brains Bob Trumpy, but I was hoping he died anyway.

The announcer I grew up listening to has a cameo in this Meat loaf tune. he became senile in the 80's, but he was the shit in the 70's.

I'm so glad that happened before he passed. Total class act, and he deserved it.

I'm convinced his son, Chip has early stage Dementia. He started his career SO strong and then folded. He's awful now, just terrible.
