John Arnold "Jack" Brown Play-by-play Announcer 1960-present Brown was a 25 year-old part-time disc jockey in California struggling to make it in the business when the AFL was formed and teams hired or held tryouts for play-by-play announcers.

Just revising an old headline...

Posted 07-18-2010 at 10:49 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

I can't edit this "headline anymore since the thread is closed, so I am putting my revisions here. I know it seems a waste since this is four years old, but I liked those threads and I like writing. So I go back and revisit them, they appeal to my desire to write "Onion" type headlines.

Twins demand that Selig force White Sox to forfeit all remaining Target Field games

"Games that they would lose in the Metrodome they now stand a good chance of winning, and that might mean the difference in winning or losing the division. And that's just so unfair. Everything happens to us." Former pitcher/Hall of Fame bitcher Bert Blyleven


Twins ask Selig to give them the division title "right now"
