Cubs Fact:

On May 13,1991, three generations of Caray's broadcast the Cubs game. Harry called the Cubs action, while son Skip and grandson Chip worked for the Braves.

I am not a fan of either Caray son. I can't tell if I dislike Chip or Brenneman more.

It's really tough for me to watch any game that Brenneman announces. It has to be a game I desperately want to watch - in order to be subjected to that kind of punishment. Him and joe buck.

I'm not sure how I tolerated Chip Caray for so long. Perhaps it was because that was when Stoney was a rock star to me and before he turned into a bitter prick.

In order for me to insult you properly I need some clarification. Do you like the 1998-2004 version of Chip and Steve or are you talking about the current White Sox and Braves version? Or both?

I liked the 1998-2004 version of Chip and Steve.
Skip, on the other hand, always put me to sleep.

Chip and Joe were the absolute worse pair in my lifetime. I really didn't watch Cubs game during that period.

In fairness, Joe + anyone would be the worst broadcast pair of a lifetime. Joe was so bad that he could bring down anyone.

I'm with you. "Swung on, belted...". Loved it.

He does mess up a lot, but today, him and Dale Murphy are 2 pretty likeable guys and there is something to be said for that.

Joe Carter was so bad - he was good. And I loved him.

Joe was bad in a different way than Hawk. Joe was more like a cute puppy who couldn't help peeing on the floor when he got excited, "Bad puppy Joe".

Hawk is more like a mean old junkyard dog who intentionally shits in your shoes everyday. "BAD F'N DOG HAWK!!"
Please don't feed the psychos.
