He definitely saves up for 'em, for sure! Since I work overnights, I can usually see a day game but cannot watch night games unless they're on my weekend...
let's just hope I change to swing shift soooooon!

Sleep from 5 PM to 1 AM...work from 2 AM to 8 AM. Also helps to not have kids.

Yet, after 2 years of doing this, it would be nice to actually have a normal life! And have actual weekends!

LOL...how much do we take for granted in our lives? Isn't it funny how we don't appreciate the little things.

I saw that too. I missed out on the latter part of my grandpa's life (the other one died before I was born) so Ernie is like a grandpa to me!

Ernie Harwell ranked as 16th-best announcer of all time

Somehow this doesn't seem quite high enough: Ernie Harwell is ranked 16th on the American Sportscasters Association's list of the Top 50 Sportscasters of All-Time.

The rankings -- chosen by the association's members and a special committee -- are topped by the L.A. Dodgers' Vin Scully.

Rounding out the top 10 are Mel Allen, Red Barber, Curt Gowdy, Howard Cosell, Bob Costas, Jim McKay, Keith Jackson, Al Michaels and Central Michigan grad Dick Enberg.

(For the whole list, click here.)

A couple more with local ties are former University of Detroit/Pistons coach Dick Vitale at No. 47 and former Tigers/Lions announcer Van Patrick as an honorable mention.

But how could any such list not include Matt Millen, one of the very best football broadcasters of his generation?
