My favorite Skip moments came when he'd try to kill time during another sorry Braves performance, often by observing fan behavior in the stands. It was like enjoying the horror with an understanding friend.
My least-favorite was trying to extract something interesting -- anything interesting -- from him for a radio-TV column I was writing about on the 20-year anniversary of his lone year as the FSU football radio play-by-play man. That year would be 1973, when FSU went 0-11. I can understand his reticence now.
Thanks for the memories, Skip.
I just ran into Jon last night as he was MC-ing the "Go West!" Blast-Off Burlesque show at Alcove (which was stomach-churningly funny, by the way), and he said he's kind of going for a "This American Life" vibe with a combination of interview, narration and reflection, but what surprised me was the subject-appropriate music and its prevalence throughout the hour. That's a nice mix. And I think he's going to be more comfortable behind the mic as the show progresses.
Ah, feel the love, Atlanta.
I don't know about "good riddance," but I was never wowed by the place beyond its convenient location for us CL lunchers. Anyone have any suggestions on Midtown West pizza options?
I used to like the taste of PBR. But after read this, I don't.
I'll now switch to Blatz.
The Clippers of the East.
Because it's summer?
