10. Ernie...
One of my favorite memories is driving down the street on a hot summer evening with all the windows rolled down. Then a car would pull up next to you at a stop light and you'd hear Ernie's voice coming from the other car and you'd say, "Oh yea, the Tigers are on," and you'd switch on your radio and catch the rest of the game.

Ernie used to frustrate me at times. I'd turn on the radio in the middle of a game. His announcing was so professional and unbiased you couldn't tell who was winning. I'd say to myself, "Come on Ernie, what's the score?"

My only regret is I never met him. I did send him a letter of support after he was let go by the Tigers, and he sent me a nice letter back.

You will be missed Ernie!
