Yes, he's been doing that lately whenever the team does anything good. It's a bit much. It reeks of desperation.
I just think Hawk's becoming weird in old age. I'm not one who minds old stories about old players, but Hawk is now mentioning Ted Williams a handful of times every week. I'm embarrassed for him.
I'd like to see Hawk removed from the booth and made a team ambassador.
