OK, on three: GranpaWolfhouseLandfillGreatGamGamandAmerica!
Just when you thought no one cared about the good of this country, there are people that are willing to stand up and do what's right:
Chris Singleton is getting out of the White Sox broadcast booth, and in his place, we get Steve Stone.
This is amazing on multiple levels -- first of all, I don't think anyone liked Singleton. He sounds half-asleep when talking, and fully asleep otherwise. He provided nothing for Farmer to work with, and the two of them just didn't seem to have any chemistry from the get-go. Best of all, the Sox didn't have to fire him -- ESPN wanted him. Where else can you get a dry commentator who doesn't have the ability to put together a coherent sentence? Oh yeah. ESPN.
To further sweeten the deal, we get Steve Stone (a recent convert) to provide much needed color commentary. Stone filled in for a couple games last year, and really brought some of the action to life. He's generally well-liked, and doesn't have an incontinence issues.
