Default Gene Honda

I was so worried that they had replaced Gene when I was at the game today and he wasn't. Then just now as I was watching the Final Four I heard a familiar voice and it all made sense, I completely forgot that he does this. Gotta say, it's just not the same without him, so it's a big relief to know he's not gone.

This is the down side to having one of the best not just in this game, but any game

I just hope we don't lose Roger Bossard to the Final Four... that would be weird.

That damn basketball tournament can't end soon enough. The guy the Hawks used to replace Gene tonight called Brandon Saad "Andrew Saad" when announcing the stars of the game. The Hawks' old PA guy (Harvey Wittenberg) used to fill in, but he hasn't for a while.

Maybe Harvey asked not to be a part of it anymore. Or they don't want him making mistakes he's made when they've brought him back on Heritage Nights.

Thankfully WTTW doesn't have a fundraising drive going on right now. Gene is the glue that holds this city together.

I ran the Shamrock Shuffle the other day. They had a prerecorded informational message playing and it was Gene's voice. He's all over the place!

I think I just heard Gene announce a sale on women's shoes here at Walmart.

Gene is the Audible Chuck Norris. I just heard Gene on a megaphone talk a jumper off a ledge.

I think Pat Schultz, who fills in for Gene at Sox games, does a good job. Pat is the PA announcer at Loyola.

He does Lollapalooza announcements, too. Or at least used to.

Never received a 2005 World Series ring. Not sure why not.
