I've only been doing this fifty-four years. With a little experience, I might get better.
Now, you tell me, if I have a day off during the baseball season, where do you think I'll spend it? The ballpark. I still love it. Always have, always will.
I know it is the fans that are responsible for me being here. I've always tried in each and every broadcast to serve the fans to the best of my ability.
I'll tell you what's helped me my entire life. I look at baseball as a game. It's something where people can go out, enjoy and have fun. Nothing more.
It's the fans that need spring training. You gotta get 'em interested. Wake 'em up and let 'em know that their season is coming, the good times are gonna roll.
When I die, I hope they don't cremate me 'cuz I'll burn forever.
I knew the profanity used up and down my street would not go over the air… So I trained myself to say 'Holy Cow' instead.
