Game On!

Where have all the voices gone?

Some are left

intoning their best

keeping things interesting

keeping moments inspiring

while slowly their time

their value

is expiring

as they are thrown

to the back

in exchange for those

who lack.

It really mattered

who said what of who

did what and how they

said of who

where and when

so the moment

big or small

would never

be forgotten.

Recent choices

are lacking

real voices

with any real personality

memorable personality

dryer in taste

than any martini

only settling for flat

soda banter

is if the moment

does not matter.

Dick Enberg,

Brett Mussberger,

Bob Cole,

Vin Scully,

Ted Darling,

Rick Jennerette,

Keith Jackson,

Danny Gallivan,

Al Michaels,

Howard Cossell,

Van Miller,

Curt Gowdy,

Marv Albert,

Phil Rizzuto,

Ralph Kiner,

Mark Lee,

Bob Kostas,

Pat Summerall.

These guys have

or had the voice

and could really

tell it all.

  2. Hopefully, the void means new voices will eventually come to fill it in.
