I've heard his voice over the PA system during a hawks game before... maybe it was just a recorded message.

I met Gene at Soxfest in February - he's really nice and easy to talk to...he has such a 'smooth and creamy' voice- haha. I asked him if he's ever made a mistake while at the microphone because i've never heard him say anything incorrectly or stumble over any words. He says he has made mistakes but he tries to do everything flawlessly.

nice banner for Sox Clubhouse - I love it.
