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.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
