Opening Day Is Here

Baseball is back! Here’s hoping my Brewers end their season the same way the Packers ended theirs — with a Super Bowl victory.

The most entertaining part of following the Brewers is Bob Uecker, their radio announcer. He had two heart surgeries last year and missed a large chunk of the season. But he’s feeling much better now, and is still cracking jokes.

The Wall Street Journal profiled him today. It’s worth a read. Note that the article describes his partner in the booth, Cory Provus, as his straight man; one hears a lot more than baseball when Uecker calls a game.
