NO HITTERS are why Joe Castiglione is the man and Glenn Geffner is not."Great job, Glenn Geffner," Joe said after Geffner finished interviewing Clay Buchholz.Made me chuckle.
i heard thethermodynamics thing i almost drove off the road. on another note: Mr Buchholz curve is pretty devastating. A poster on another board said that wasn't uncle charlie, it was Sir Lord Charles. even Vin Scully gave the last one an "oh my".
What planet is Geffner from? As early as the 6th inning - possibly earlier - Geffner was using the phrase that shouldn't be uttered in a game like that: no-hitter. This was in direct contrast to Castiglione, who, according to the Boston Globe, "observed all the usual broadcasting superstitions and didn't directly mention that a no-hitter was in progress, behavior that was imitated in the Sox dugout." Thank God we got home in time to watch the rest of this historic game on TV. I used to like listening to the games on radio better than watching on TV, but not anymore. Joe, our condolences for having to work with this guy.
I was at the Rock Cats/Sea Dogs game in New Britain, CT and usually was listening to the play by play ofTHAT game on WDRC 1360 but of course I was checking in on theSox too (WTIC 1080). Became awareof no-hitter; later, the PA announcer would mention it was going on andtoward the end some of us werelistening to Sox coverage onWalkmen (orthose in suites had the game on TV)and we got to hear that final out, etc. When I heard Joe say, "Glenn has gone down to the clubhouse in casewe need to talk to Clay" Ithought, thank God!: yes, it's too bad he gets to interview him but it'd be Joe and Joe alonemaking the historic call ofthe last out!And just when I thought Glennhad stopped his annoying habit,he did it again a few games back:"so, the run scores and the RedSox are back to within 4 to 2".Arrgh! He means "the Red Sox areback to within two runs--it's4 to 2". Skips over words.Annoying!
