Joe Garagiola Dies

Joe-Garagiola-Twitter

I know that we are in the middle of Holy Week, but occasionally on this blog I write about my influences growing up.  I remember Joe Garagiola as the “voice” of the Major League Game of the Week.  Today I found out that he died this week.  He was one of the few national announcers that I liked.  I had a hard time listening to the ABC crew, but NBC’s Game of the Week was always pleasant to listen to.  Garagiola was 90, so he lived a long life.  I hadn’t heard of his work recently, but in the process I came across this “highlight” video.
