Lamenting The Loss Of Harry, Once Again

For some reason — perhaps it's the Cardinals-Cubs series tonight — but we started becoming rather nostalgic and wistful about Harry Caray today. We're not sure why. Jack Buck was always our favorite announcer anyway. Maybe it's just because we don't have many Harrys anymore; people who are liable to do and say anything, and do and say it in as entertaining a way as possible. Maybe if they let Rick Sutcliffe do all the games drunk, maybe. Or maybe we're just vanilla Jim Nantz/Joe Buck/Greg Gumbel-ed out.


Anyway, we were hoping to find a video of Harry pronouncing "Grudzielanek" or explaining how Dawson spelled backwards was Nosewad, but, alas, we could only find this Rapping Harry commercial from the mid-80s. For now, we guess, it will have to suffice.

And Here's Your Rick Sutcliffe Video [Deadspin]
