    I'm dead serious.
    In the P.J.'s, my blend tape plays, bullets are strays
    Young bitches is grazed
    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped
    Plus the Island is packed
    From what I hear in all the stories when my peoples come back, black

    I looked at the fox preview, and it looks like we've got the Moose, Darryl Johnston with Dick Stockton this week.


    I really couldn't ask for a better set of announcers for a game that I am already hyped up to watch, and it's only Friday.

    I'm dead serious.

    I didn't put him first b/c I despise Buck and McCarver. If they're tied for 1, he's certainly a 1a.

    He is the most pompous, high-browed announcer I have ever heard. He thinks that being a great player automatically makes him the games best announcer. If you're not sure how good he was, wait an inning or two and he'll tell you (maybe b/c he was surrounded by one of the greatest hitting lineups in the history of baseball) He is the least informed accouncer in baseball. He attacked Billy Beane for writing a book he didn't write and which Morgan hasn't read.Hes an arrogant SOB who has made Sunday Night Baseball unlistenable.

    A nice Morgan gem on Sunday Night Baseball:

    Miller: The Boston Red Sox, you think of as a team that can hit, they've always hit. This year they're second in the league in batting average, 3rd in slugging and number 1 in on-base percentage, which might be the most telling stat of all, Joe.

    Morgan: I think that's a surprising statistic to me, you know, on Boston, 'cause that's not normally the way they play the game...You're showing them there first in on-base percentage, that also brings a point that they're taking more pitches, they're making the pitchers throw more strikes now, making them throw more pitches early in the game. All of that goes hand-in-hand with being maybe a better offensive team, maybe even better than they were last year, 'cause they were more free-swingers last year.

    He refused to go to the Ryne Sandberg induction ceremony into the Hall b/c he came out of retirement and broke morgans record for HR's by a 2nd baseman. I hate the guy.

    Why is he so good, in your opinion?
