I have defended Hawk in the past, but I admit it is getting harder.
Just recently...last couple of weeks, he seems to have gone off the reservation a bit more.
Last nite was bad. It is like now he and even Stoney are fitting the game action around the telling of random stories....this has flipped from the other way around, recently.
At times, Hawk seems disinterested in the actual action on the field, as he wants to get that story out more.
Last nite, Stoney was in the middle of a story, and then the action occurred and Stoney flipped to the game, but then Hawk encouraged him to get right back to the story...not appropriate.
Stoney is smart enough to know what is happening in the booth and I have to think he has either just given up and is laying down to Hawks style or he is also enjoying this approach...I think it is the former.
Sox need to nip this trend in the bud....it is drifting toward weird.
