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 Munson...trust 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!
