    "hoooo, hoooo. I make that much in 2 weeks. Plus, just because he can land a plane
    doesn't make him a hero, right Robin"?

    Fuck you Howard.

    This guy has been on the air FOREVER!!!!

    The play to play guy for the Dodgers for 50 FUCKING YEARS!!!!!!!!!!

    Howard, you're nothing more than vile, stomach churning, disease and scum. You infect everyone you come in contact.

    The icing on the cake, take a good look at that thing you call a wife. See what's she's been up to. From my understanding her little pet project of the new hospital wing is finishing it's final stage of invisible building technology. It's truly an amazing thing to see, or not.

    And all at the same time children, human children that is, need money for research in to the diseases plaguing them. Unfortunately, the vapid cunt (sorry ladies), only supports poorly rated animal charities who seem to care more about lavish parties than building a new wing.

    I can only imagine what it's like at one of their homes late at night. Either, or both of them walking around, knowing damn well that they truly deserve NONE of it.

    Their prime died decades ago - whether that meant being #1 in most US markets, or posing for a Kohl's ad, (which seems to be Beth's peek professionally).

    How can they stand themselves? That's the one question I've never been able to answer, or even guess at - How can Howard and Beth Stern wake up every day being happy about who they are and what they contribute to society.

    I don't even think the millions can negate that. Bottom line, does Howard ever seem truly happy? I've never seen it.





    .

    BTW, I think I took a sharp right turn while writing this. Sorry. Little venting on a Friday night in Jersey.

    Vin Scully has class, a real work ethic, and is excellent at his craft. Even after so many years, he still seems to care about it.

    No, I don't think Howard could consider that a success by his standards. Especially if Vin doesn't have a houseful of cats and a wife who doesn't
    parade herself around on idiotic red carpets all the time. I live in Vin's broadcasting area, and I don't know anything about his wife. Which is fine!

    You would think there would be more money there for Vin Scully. Must be a number of bad investments

    The only broadcaster he said he looked up to, that I remember is Bob Grant

    He doesn't acknowledge or respect anyone else in the industry

    Vin Scully is obviously an extremely successful broadcaster. He also seems to be well liked by almost everyone. Just let it go.

    Robin, Vin Scully shouldn't be around children. That's all I'm going to say.

    I prefer Scully but that's just me. Nothing like a good radio baseball guy telling the story of a game as the sun goes down.

    I was sort of kidding when I made that statement just to see if it would have pissed people off.

    Scully makes what he does so well seem effortless. Listen to 99% of baseball--or announcers of any sport--and it's clear that he's in a class all his own. He always seems comfortable in his own skin, too, and genuinely happy. I think he's great.

    In terms of character, two men at opposite ends of the spectrum. Fuck Howard.

    Picked up one of these beauties at the stadium tonight.
