9. A personal insight from your ol' Michigan sportswriter buddy here
Frank Beckman is a prick. Joe Falls is a prick too. Mitch Albom is very nice.
I miss JP McCarthy. He was a Republican (read his biography "Just Don't Tell "Em Where I Am"), but you'd NEVER have known it from the grace and style with which he conducted his interviews. The man was, simply, the best I ever heard. He was truly interested in what people had to say and could make the most mundane topics fascinating. He was a giant of broadcasting and his type won't be heard again.
I haven't tuned into WJR since Tiger baseball went to 1270 (and that's a topic for another day). Doesn't sound like I've missed anything.
John
It is now 44 days, 22 hours and 44 minutes to FUNDAY. Are you guys coming or what?
