For @wissoxfan83 Petition to Replace Buck with Bob Uecker-Now we're talkin"...

  • At least for the short term, this should make @wissoxfan83 smile. Me too sox, plus an entire generation of baseball purists with a sense of humor & a total understanding of what baseball is really meant to be…not life or death, but America’s National Pastime. I just watched a Carson rerun last week, whence Johnny endowed Bob with his famous Mr Baseball moniker. What a showman…Where the heck do I sign ?!

  • Uecker’s HOF induction ceremony is absolutely hilarious-Wille Mays, Eddie Murray, Lou Brock, Rollie Fingers, Brooks Robinson, George Brett, Reggie Jackson-the list of HOF players constantly wiping tears of laughter is endless. If nothing else, please take the time to watch this utube video, & hopefully you have a brighter day because of it. I say Joe Buck needs to go !!

  • I like it. Uke did some Cleveland baseball in that baseball movie with his famous line Just a bit outside. I imagine he has done some series games, he used to be a regular on national broadcasts. i still enjoy listening to him in the summer doing Brewers games.

  • Uke and Bo Ryan doing D1…I would pay for that!!!

    That would be pure heaven on earth.

  • I really think what Trump proves is there is enormous pent up demand for a network specializing in satirizing and calling out the real status quo, not the fake one Democrats and Republicans (both on the take) prattle about!

    Comedy Central is just Democratic Jokes’r’Us.

    Fox is just Republican Spin.

    The rest of the networks are just John Podestas propaganda eunuchs and news prostitutes. They are shameless liars on the take for access and checks.

    Wait a minute. I didn’t mean John Podesta. I meant John Doe.

    Trump better hope he loses so he and Sheldon can start this network in January.

    It’s time.

    Mega bucks to be made.

    I think most Royals fans would be delighted to sign that petition…and a life time ban doing Royals broadcasts.

  • @JayHawkFanToo Joe is just so far diff from his HOF broadcaster Dad. IMO but that’s prob how he got in the biz. I once heard KC broadcaster Don Fortune say Joe “was the rudest, most pompous asshole he’d ever encountered in 50 years in broadcasting.” Said Joe almost broke his finger poking his shirt logo while screaming “do you even know who I am ?” when Don asked a trivial question during the all star game media day in KC a few years back. I was never a big fan of Don but that convinced me the dude was a jerk cause Don was an old KC guy by then with absolutely no nest to feather with his commentary going forward.

  • @globaljaybird

    Every Royals fan I know hates Joe Buck.

  • @JayHawkFanToo I’m still wearing my “Thank You Kansas City” T shirt & WS Champions hat proudly for another week, and well beyond because the older I get, the more I can get away with…

  • @globaljaybird

    Amen to that brother.
