Skip Carey RIP

It was announced that Skip Carey, the voice of the Atlanta Braves for all of my formative years, passed away today. For practically all of my life watching the Braves and listening to Skip and Pete Van Wieren and for many years Ernie Johnson Sr. was a daily experience between April and September. Back then, the Braves were so bad that it was truly comical.

That Skip and the rest of the gang have never been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame is a travesty and a sign of how the baseball establishment is so dominated by the annoying teams in New York and Boston.

Skip will be missed. The crews today are so inferior and yet it is all we have left.
