Remembing Harry Kalas

Harry Kalas passed away today. I am usually not one to get choked up when famous people die. Maybe I feel a connection and closeness to Harry Kalas that I do not have with other famous people. I guess it has something to do with Radio and Baseball.

I would like to call Harry Kalas genius at calling a ball game. When I was in high school and start of college the Phillies were bad, 87-92. His genius came in by making the games entertaining even when the teams were bad. I listened to more loses than I care to remember, but Harry and Richie somehow made them alright. Harry Kalas is in no small part responsible for my personal love of baseball.
