Read this article if you care to. I enjoyed it. But what's the story behind their rocky start? I dont' remember an on-air rfit or hearing about it.

They also have one on Rooney and Farmer

It's not a violation to post the entire article. But it is a violation to post even a part of an article w/out the link. Now there is some flexibility such as a thread. If the top of the thread contains a link to an article it's not necc to constantly include that link in every post within that thread.

If you happen to wander past a Little League or pickup game on the South Side, listen for the kids mimicking Hawk's homer call. (And not that this is any stamp of approval but ESPN frequently steals Hawkisms -- particularly "You can put it on the board . . . " -- for its baseball highlights or keeps Hawk's voice for Sox clips).

I can only think of two complaints about the broadcasts.

First of all, it's time to get rid of the "Picks to click" because it's lost its meaning.

fvj: Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! :angry:

I actually do recall that altercation on the air, it made some news in the paper but it was quickly shot down by Hawk and DJ right away.

Personally I think Hawk is great. Sure he might be a "homer" sometimes but when he gets angry during a game he's at his best. As far as DJ goes, he has sort of grown on me. I didn't like him when he first got here but he's starting to develop a bit of a relationship with Hawk. However, when DJ does the national TV broadcast on FOX it almost seems like he's a whole new person with Hawk not dominating the booth.

The riff was minor and blown up by the SCORE. IIRC Hawk and DJ exchanged a few slightly angry words. Not a big deal.

For the most part, I agreed with Terry Armour's views on Hawk & DJ and Rooney & Farmer. The Cubune reporter who reviewed the TV side of the Cubs broadcast had quite a few good critical points. But when this guy reviewed Santo & Hughes, he had his nose buried way too far in the corporate ass. The guy had nothing critical to say about those two buffoons.

At least in the whole little story they put together, they ranked Joe Carter as the worst baseball announcer this city has ever been damned to listen to..
