  2. Joe Garagiola was always one of my favorite sportscasters. He used to be one of the broadcasters of Monday Night Baseball when I was a kid and he used to host a 15 minute pre-game show. He was always knowledgeable, funny and likeable. He used to tell the story of how most major leaguers were the best baseball players in their neighborhood when they were kids but that he wasn't even the best catcher. He grew up just a few houses away from Yogi Berra. I have his 1951 Bowman baseball card on my dresser. Monica's dad gave it to me. (Rob)
