PICTURE OF CLASS
From Joe Posnanski's column on Ernie Harwell, the Detroit Tigers' Hall of Fame radio announcer from 1960--2002, who has inoperable cancer:
Few around sports have ever been as loved as Harwell. Ernie, who is 91, said that maybe it was because his voice had always been around, day after day, year after year, barbecue after barbecue, booming through summer thunderstorms. "It's just there," he said of his own voice on the radio. "You can listen to it, if you want. Or you can be doing something else, and it just sort of drifts into your psyche."
