McCarver signs off

I started listening to Tim McCarver in the 1980s when he was a Mets broadcaster.  He and Ralph Kiner taught me so much about baseball and how to call a game well.  Love him or hate him (and my eyes roll just thinking about his obsession with baseball's obsession with pitch counts), he will be missed.

I can still remember the 9th inning of 2001's game seven. Bases loaded.  Rivera on the mound.  McCarver says that Jeter, who was playing in, should move back since Rivera induces so many bloop hits in short left field.  Sure enough.

Lou Reed, 1942-2013

With my Cali/Grateful Dead sensibilities, I wasn't a huge fan, but he and the VU were as influential as any R&R band in history.

Perspective, bitches!

An important message from Mr. Cole, in his typically restrained manner. Most of the media's coverage of FAIL is done by people who aren't desperate for health insurance.

Ramblin' Tommy Scott (aka Doc Scott)


Mr. Chamberlain, who had started the show late in the 19th century, retired in the late 1930s and gave Mr. Scott control of both the show and the laxative. Other medicine shows were fading at the time, but Mr. Scott continued with his. He eventually set aside the Herb-O-Lac for a skin liniment he unapologetically called Snake Oil, but his most enduring commodity was his nostalgic pitch. In time, he renamed his show “ ‘Doc’ Scott’s Last Real Old Time Medicine Show.”
