    I almost bought a Nehru jacket once. Instead, I bought a fringed leather vest.

    Peace.

    Many times I would turn the radio to the station I would listen to Reds games and it would be silent except for the murmer in the crowd. I would wonder if this is the right station or not? Then I would hear Joe say, "That's a curve for a strike." All was well then.

    Was a pretty good golfer at one time, I hear.

    Is there a reason why Marty Brennaman just doesn't do TV?

    There's less autonomy for TV announcers. They've always got a producer in one ear telling them what to do next. That's not an issue on the radio. You just follow the format and the log. I imagine Marty prefers the control that radio allows him.

    The extent of my Nehru jacket knowledge comes from Barbie ripping up Ken's Nehru jacket in Toy Story 3.

    I participated in most "hip" clothing styles (so I thought) of the 70's. Good and bad.

    Cleaned out the basement last weekend and found my hippie army jacket. Upsidedown US flag on the back and a peace sign patch and one that said "bombing for peace is like ____ for virginity".

    My wife was appalled.

    Re: Criticisms of Fox Sports Ohio Broadcasts

    Here is how I rank the Red broadcasters:

    1. Marty Brennaman-Simply the best announcer in baseball. ATOBTTR is legendary and gives me goosebumps every time.

    2. Chris Welsh- Great technical guy and it is oh so funny when he puts Thom in his place

    3. Jeff Brantley-Though he sometimes forgets to tell me the score, he is definitely the most colorful personality they have. You can tell he is just loving life.

    4. Jim Kelch-Nothing bad at all about Kelch, just nothing great either. He is the perfect utility man.

    20. Thom Brennaman-Uuuugh! He is fun when the Reds win, but man what a drag all of the other times.

    Do wanna sell that jacket? Because I would totally wear it out on the town.

    Joe understood that you didn't always have to fill every second with your voice. I wish more announcers understood this.
