It Has Been A Decade Since We Lost Harry Caray


On this slow February sports day, the biggest news today is probably still the saddest: It has been 10 years today since Harry Caray shambled off this mortal coil.

Caray was 84 years old when he died, which is impressive; that's about 25 years longer than you might have thought he would have lived. There's something blissful about Harry's inherent Chicago-ness; we would never have believed he ever broadcast for teams other than the Cubs if we didn't know better. In an age of expendable, interchangeable talking heads, Harry was uniquely Harry. We can't imagine him broadcasting for anyone other than the Cubs.

Everybody has their great Harry stories, and here's one of our favorites. Here's a rundown of great Harry moments. The man will never be forgotten, and will always be loved, even by this Cardinals fan.

Hey! Holy cow!
