This man is the reason why watching Baseball on TV or listening to it on the radio is fucking boring. Dizzy Dean. You don't know what you missed. Hearing that a player 'slud' into third base, or the coach 'nanchlatly' walked to the pitchers mount or commented that when ever he flew over Arkansas he had the urge to take a pee. Well..he couldn't get away with it today and I think the comment he made about Arkansas got him tossed off the air. And I'm sure right up until his death he couldn't understand why everyone was in such an uproar about it. Some of the best memories I have are sitting around the radio with my Daddy listening to Dizzy call the games. They are probably the happiest times of both our lives. We loved ole Dizzy...Oh by the way before he became a sportscaster, he was one of the best pitches ever. Oh...and like me..he may have been born in Arkansas, but we're Texan's in our hearts and souls.
