    I get it, I did the same thing a few times this summer.

    Joe's voice would take me back to the days of my childhood when I had nothing but time to listen to the game. His voice could make me feel the warmth of sunshine, smell the fragrance of the grass, and see the dust flying on a play at the plate.

    Joe seemed to always enjoy the game regardless of the outcome, and if the home team lost today, he just knew we'd get 'em tomorrow.

    As if that wasn't enough by itself, he was a obviously a good friend, a good neighbor, a good husband, a good father, and a solid citizen.

    RIP Joe.

    I want to put flowers at his statue at the ballpark this afternoon. Is that a nice gesture or does it cross the line into Crazyfan?
    Do it!

    Ditto. Good grief. Thanks for the link.

    Does anyone know if an audio clip of the last few minutes of his last signoff is available? They played it on the radio this morning and it is really something.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I purposely avoided most of the news because I'd be crying all day... and just reading the posts on this thread I'm welling up. I don't know if Butler County, or the cities of Hamilton and Fairfield have flags - but they should be flying half mast...


    As a native Hamiltonian from the west side, this is truly a sad day.

    Enquirer had some media sounds of Joe. Reds.com might do something.

    I'd like to get the clip of the entire "Star of the Game" conversation from his very last time in 2004. He had Marty as the star and they just talked about all the memories. And then that sign off.....man, that was something I'm proud to have had the opportunity to listen to.

    And I'd definitely head over to the park today/tonight. Seems like many are over there. On the noon news, 700 had a live report from the ballpark.

    And Austin Kearns is on with Willy now.

    700 is really doing an awesome job today with the guests and coverage. That interview they played between Joe and Bob Trumpy during the 11 AM hour was great.

    Man, I sure hope they do something great for his funeral. I really hope they have some sort of service/ceremony down at the stadium. I'd definitely drive down from Columbus for it.

    I was kind of thinking the same thing. Maybe have him lie in state at the entrance to GAB or the HOF & Museum.
