Dick and Bert

Are there any announcers more entertaining? They make watching the game on TV almost as fun as actually being at the game.

I enjoy listening to them and actually think they call a pretty fair game. Bob Uecker just flat cracks me up and I listen to his games just to hear him. Anyone what to make a wager that the current hot dog debate will last at least till the 4th of July? Will Dick ever have his dog deliver to the box like Bert does?

And why doesn't Bert eat the bread with his 'dog? Will Bert continue to talk with a mouthfull of animal parts? How many birthday references will we hear with 355 days until his next B-Day?

I do get a kick out of that pair. They are tied at the top of my list with Frank-n-Woog for Gopher hockey broadcasts.

Sorry this is old history, but for me nobody was more entertaining to listen to than Harry Caray and Jimmie Piersall back in their WSox days-but then again they had to be.

Not that I'm bored at work or just have nothing better to do. The answer to your question is 135 more time. Well that is how many more time they are broadcasted on FSN. Plus how ever far they make it in the play-offs but should be pretty close though. Could be a few less if Bert happens to slip a couple "F" enhymers by mistake. I met Bert after a game a few years back at a bar next to the dome. He was a hoot. We bought him a couple Coors lites and he bought our table a round. Pretty down to earth guy and between Dick and him they are two of the best at what they do.

Watching as many games as possible on FSN (which my wife will fairly accurately tell you is around 125-130), you cringe just a bit in July/August when some of the phrasing D&B use gets repetitive: "...when he's throwing the ball good..." "They play the game the right way...", the 'call,' the AFLAC trivia, the "This copyrighted broadcast..." speech, but after watching a few WSox games on WGN, you can easily thank your lucky hanky that we don't have to listen to those contrived homer-isms. Overall, Dick and Bert are a good balance.

Now, if we could get the fans in front of me to leave the 'Circle Me' signs at home, it's all good.

Geno,

I have to agree with you on that one. Harry and Jimmy were a classic on the old Sox games. One of my favorite lines was Harry saying to Jimmy (who was on a rant for one reason or another) "You're crazy if you think that". To which Jimmy replied, "I'm not crazy, and I have the papers to prove it". Way funny!

I still have an old baseball autographed by Harry when I saw him at the old Evergreen Park shopping plaza.

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.
    • IceHawk
      Thanks Rick! Jeff hope to make it always a good time and laughs when you get a group of great people together. I usally do more jaw jacking  then fishing at these things but for me its just as much fun 
    • Rick
      I will donate a few goodies. I will send it to @Tom Sawyer if he messages me his address.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger. 
    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.
    • smurfy
      i'm considering going out sat to chase walleyes, cats or crappies................OK whatever will bite. whats frustrating is i live 5 mile from the chain, grew up in richmond and all these maps have me confused??????????
    • DonBo
      Toying with the idea of heading up there Saturday morning. Only been there a couple times, never on the opener.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Anyone go out on the opener? I usually wait a week before heading up there, so curious to hear some ice/fishing reports.
    • Roscoe010
      Did any of you check out the pits for winter trout opener last weekend? Thanks!
