As a Tiger fan, I love our TV announcers. Mario and Rod are fabulous. And, I often said, that Rod Allen was the only thing that made the 2003 season bearable.
Today, they had a beautiful conversation. They showed a clip of current White Sox manager Robin Ventura getting beaten into a conniption by legendary pitcher, Nolan Ryan. As they showed the clip, Rod said, something to the effect that Ventura had a few knuckle sandwiches. Mario replied, and I’m paraphrasing, ‘it was more like a picnic.” I have been laughing for the last 10 minutes.
Here’s a video of that fateful day in 1993.
