Hello and welcome to my blog. This space will be devoted to opinions, observations, lists, articles and whatever else I feel like posting. Subjects will include music, human nature, politics, life in NYC, etc. If I paste someone else's writing up here, it is because the author said something way better than I ever could. By the way, I don't claim to be a particularly smart guy; I'm just a musician with some opinions. If you disagree with me, that's cool -- but then, you're probably wrong.
The long-running announcer for the Philadelphia Phillies died today.
This may be hard to believe, but I watched a lot of Phillies games while growing up in the Philadelphia suburbs, and Kalas's distinctive voice was a huge part of the experience. I am even known to do a pretty good impression of the man.
I haven't followed a sports team for eons now, but nonetheless, it is sad to know that Kalas is gone. Click the headline for the full story.
