As promised, Lou Merloni played second mike for Joe C. in the abysmal game versus the Massilon Indians last night. He didn't do bad.
He made some rookie mistakes, such as repeatedly saying "as I said earlier" and being terified that a wee bit of non-talking time would arise during the broadcast. The most trenchant analysis was provided by Mrs. LC, who said in the third inning, "this is going to be a long night for Joe". It was, in many ways.
Lou told a lot of stories from his playing days. You wonder what he would have left to say if he did another game tonight.
