The people who "really, really like" George (who basically sounds like a continous loop of Sally Field's "you really, really liked me" Oscar speech) keep saying they are glad he is not a "homer".
But he is, he is ...a homer.....for the other team.
I mean how hard is it....to either not cheer as much or talk about non-stop, about the other team.....or be as excited for the team you cover as you are for the other one.
No one wants a Ken Harrelson.....but this year, with the team in a real race for a division or WC, he could be more pumped for it.
I do not bash him for being nice.....i think he fits the percieved idea of what a Midwestern person is like......he could be the Vin Scully of the midwest if he wanted to, beacuse of his stories.
