I am totally swaggerjacking the Wake Up Zone on 104.5 here, but this topic could prove to provide some interesting discussion. The passing of Harry Kalas yesterday prompted them to pose these two questions; Which announcer would you want to call the last game you ever listened to, and if you could pick a sporting event and venue to be at when you pass, which one would it be?
I will start. I didn't listen to that many game growing up, so I don't have some announcer that I remember from my childhood. My announcer would be Mike Keith calling a Titans game. His call of the Music City Miracle still gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.
My sporting event and venue would be Wrigley Field watching a Cubs game. There is no great sporting venue in the world.
