I was close with my grandfather as a young boy, but he died so long ago that I can't remember his actual voice. When I try to imagine it, he sounds like Ernie.
We talked about how media has changed over the time he was a broadcaster. We talked about how to make a baseball game interesting without the visual...aka radio. Painting the picture so to speak. We talked about how he got to where he was.

And we talked about some of the calls he made...about old players that stood out to him(I don't remember who he said...but I think it was something like there's too many.) He just told so many stories. You kind of get lost in the talk with him because he can just take you out of your surroundings and into wherever his story was supposed to take you.

An employee of mine bought me the Brother's K....I have that aversion to sports books, but since it was a gift, I'll read it.

Have read 2 Chabon titles....The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, as well as The Mysteries of Pittsburgh....own 2 more of his books as well.

The Brother's K is probably my favorite book ever. I don't think of it as a sports book, but I know some that can't get through it because of the baseball.

What did you think of kavalier & clay?

I thought Kavalier and Clay was good, but, not worthy of the hype/awards it received. But, then again, I read Philip Roth and close his books slightly underwhelmed, so who am I to really say? Being Jewish helped me like Kavalier and Clay a little bit.

Of the cheap ilk, or of the good-hearted variety?

I felt the same way about K&C. I have Yiddish Policeman's Union on my desk, but I haven't started reading it yet.

Mmmmm. How does one tell the difference?

And it better not be a smell test.

Final note on Chabon, if I ever meet him I will have sharp words for him. I read his children's novel, Summerland(?). Never have I felt like an author stole my money as much as I did with that book.

I do not have that...I have Summerland, and I forget the other....Mysteries of Pittsburgh I actually liked better than Kavalier and Clay.
