Marty in his prime in the 80's was probably the best announcer I ever heard.
It's sad that he's become tired with his job and become the stereotypical worker that doesn't know how good he's got it.. You know.. the guy that's being paid well, but spends his entire lunch hour complaining about how his employer sucks.
I honestly don't know why he didn't retire years ago. It's obvious he doesn't enjoy his job anymore. He could retire and still have the "celebrity" status he enjoys so much. WLW could give him his own talk show, he could still do his annual golf thing, and keep doing commericals..
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
