To pry myself away from the ever-distracting computer, I decided to attempt to write my paper outside on the deck before I had to go to a party. Since the Yankee game was on at the same time, I decided to put the radio on so that I could listen to my two favorite radio personalities: John Sterling and Suyzn Waldman. It's always a joyous time when I get to listen to Sterling paint a visual picture of the game as he often sees it (which is unfortunately not often close to the actual game that is being played).
I have to admit, they weren't too bad today, during the 4 innings that I listened to them. I like how Suzyn gives you information about the other games that are being played around baseball, more specifically info about the Jays games. I didn't realize that Hill was 0-25 and it was nice to hear updates on how Halladay was pitching.
It was also cool to hear the homerun call that Sterling has for Nick Swisher. I found myself cracking up at his rendition of "Hes Swish-a-licios." I will admit I held my breath wondering if the homerun was actually going to be a homerun...... Today was apparently water bottle day giveaway at the stadium, and Suzyn was quite puzzled on how much the water bottle looked like a baby bottle... Hmm, I wonder...
It is funny because I used to watch the baseball games while I was working at my old job. Since the sound on the TV wasn't great, we would mute the game on the TV and turned the radio on. For the most part I would watch the game but when there was a customer I would sometimes have to leave the vicinity of the screen. It was often comical because there would be instances in which I wasn't watching the game but I would hear the play from the radio. After hearing the call, I would run to the TV (since the radio is about 3 seconds ahead of the television broadcast) and would often find myself wondering if I was watching the same game that John Sterling was seeing. Since I doubt the television is distorting the game, it must be John's eyes that are slowly failing on him.
