  1. Me too. Sometimes, with a good announcer, that’s the best way to watch a game.

    • A good radio personality sometimes does bring things to life more vividly than a visual picture. There were times growing up when, knowing my parents wouldn’t let me stay up to watch the on TV, I would listen to Royals games on radio in my room, wearing headphones. Good memories.

      • You bet. I fell asleep many times with the transistor radio under the pillow, I’d use that earphone and listen to the Cubs games when they played in SF or LA. It was a great way to fall asleep. I used up many batteries.

    Ford may have, but I have it on good authority that Chevy Chase did not.

    I’ve had those days (the days where you say something utterly stupid) too. I sympathize, Gerry.

    After reading the other replies, I’m not sure anymore if Ford said this in tribute to broadcasters who paint pictures with words or if he just made a mistake?

    • I think it was a mistake, but perhaps it was a truly genuine mistake for the same reasons we mentioned? He honestly mixed up his wording due to the power of broadcasting and visualization.
