First and foremost,
I am a Red Sox fan.
Then, a baseball fan.
Those things come after
King of Macedonia
Glass-blowing artisan and
Man Of Letters
Somewhere after that, just before "Hello Kitty" collector, is
Observer of Baseball Announcers.
Turns out that the American culture is not a meritocracy, since Glenn Geffner is an MLB announcer. Since the "observer of baseball announcers" is so far down the list, I do not feel guilty when I avoid listening to Glenn Geffner which, I did, with intermittant success last night. Honestly, what could be more pointless that a mid-September game in Baltimore with 3x5 on the mike?
Glenn Geffner was back at it last night. I think he set a world record for transforming multi-syllable words into single syllables.
see e.g. "throughout" becomes "throut". [rhymes with "trout"]
That's just they way it goes.
I don't get it.
