    His call of Gibsons home run in 1988 was the best.

    He lived a very long and eventful life.

    This one is one that stings.

    He and Jack Buck were in a class by themselves. Could listen to either read the phone book.

    I was so looking forward to the Athletics and their pitching staff kicking the Dodgers Ass. Dodgers took all momentum in game 1 and never looked back.

    His John Adams bio was a tremendous read.

    The Panama Canal one was just as good. Sometimes, the professional historians stick their noses up at the popular historical writers, but I really enjoyed his work.

    The way Chernow writes them I didn’t even feel like I was reading a “biography” so to speak

    I woke up and saw the news to that, having her organs donated.

    Reported that Dr's are trying to decide if any are okay for donation after fire damage and smoke inhalation.
