I used to love to turn down the sound to the TV and listen to Marty and Joe, but haven't been able to do that in some time.
Marty is a curmudgeonly uncle whom I still like because I've grown up with him, gotten used to him, and since Joe liked him so much, have made allowances for him. Marty's mood has much improved since his fairly recent wedding, IMO. He seems happier.
No one can call a great moment like Marty Brennaman. I still love Marty because of our history together, my idea of heaven is sitting in my backyard on a warm summer night, sipping a cold one, and listening to Marty and Joe call another win for the BRM.
Marty's not what he was, but then again, neither am I.
Thom just irritates me in a mostly harmless way. He is a huge Reds fan, and I respect that side of him. Some folks love his over dramatization of every little thing. I don't. But I'm gonna love it when he goes off on the woo'ers!
