05/03/2005: Thought for the Day:
You know, I used to think I didn't like Chip Caray because he was announcing the Cubs, but the one thing that the Braves series is making painfully clear is that I don't like Chip because he is annoying. And then there's Don Sutton. I'm not exactly sure what it is about him, but he's the only person I've ever heard that makes me long for the insight of Hungo. Don Sutton quote of the day:
"How many times does this happen: a pitcher pitches to the presence of that person and to not what he is doing or his physical state at the moment..."
I don't even know what that means. I don't even know what it's supposed to mean. Why is that television color commentary seems indelibly marked with meandering mediocrity. It's the Muzak of insightólike actual commentary, but not really. Or maybe it's just really deepókind of like contemplating the sound of one hand clapping. Perhaps I'm not in tune with my Chi enough when Sutton or Hungo or any number of the others talk.
