#15694 Phil Humber's Perfect Game!

Posted by sven-erik312 on 22 April 2012 - 11:44 AM

Hi there FFP!
Some great points there. I didn't see any of that stuff., the best I could get was the highlights on ESPN America. The game was way past my time zone anyway. But, you know, as a kid I would listen to Braves games with Milo Hamilton doing the games. Maybe just to fill up airtime, but he used to always make comments on the status of other ball games with stuff like "Hmm, Pitcher XXX has a no hitter going into to the 6th, lets see what happens."
Having been away from the game on a daily level for almost 15 years, I notice that I don't hear alot about other games from the local play by play guys, at least not as much as I would like to think I remember. When it's a network broadcast, it seems like those guys follow other games a little better. I always liked hearing about other games on the radio
One bizzare thing I saw on TV once was Andy Messershimdt pitching a no hitter against the White Sox and loosing, I think it was 1988.
The most exciting thing I ever saw was the Braves pulling off a triple play in Atlanta against the Reds in 1969, but they stilllost the game

Even though this site is devoted to the Cubs and even though I know that there are a few Cubs fans and Sox fans who absolutely loath the "other side", you just have to tip your hat to Phil Humber, I mean a PERFECT GAME MAN! Congrats to Phil, that's just fantastic!

But I started a Masters program in 1989 and finished it in 1981.

Obviously, you got your Masters in Time Machines.

There, you see. It*s pressure again! Ha, ha! I of course meant '91!
