Santo Bashing


In the third inning of Wednesday night's White Sox vs. Mariners game the White Sox television booth invited frequent guest/rambling old man, Moose Skowran, for a chat.

In the midst of yet another Hawk/
Moose story about Mickey Mantle (they tell at least 10 of these a game when Moose joins the booth), Paul Konerko hit a long flyball to the warning track. Moose, clearly perked by the home run possibilities, starts cheering like a wild man. When the ball is safely caught by the outfielder, Moose distinctly utters in a clearly dejected tone:

"O man, I just sounded like Santo right there"

Yes, the worst insult an announcer can give himself is comparing themselves to Ron Santo.
