My Idol

While all you guys grew up listening to Munson or Skip, I grew up listening to the Hawk and still do the rare times he's on TV. There's never been a better 1-2 punch calling a ballgame than Ken Harrelson and Tom Paciorek through the late 80s and mid 90s. I could listen to them every night...and actually did as a kid. If you haven't hear Hawk call a game, be sure you do this summer whenever the White Sox are on WGN. He's like the Northern version of me on this. The only person who sounds somewhat like Munson after a huge play is Hawk.

It's like the sound the ocean makes against a baby's bottom. Wait...smooth as the tide on a newborn. Shi*. It's smooth, okay?

So Congrats and here's to hoping you make it into Cooperstown.

He's a good one. I spent 4 years in Illinois when I was 12-16 between '90-'94 and I know exactly what you're talking about . Those two turned me into not only a White Sox fan, but into a baseball fan. Best of luck to him!
