There is no joy in Mudville today. Fly, fly away Mr. Niehaus. Sad day for sure.

Put away the mustard and the rye bread grandma your baby Dave is home at last. You will be missed for sure Dave. One of the best announcers I ever heard, I would rather have listened to him broadcast on the radio than watch the game. He made it come alive.

Your showing your age here I remember My dad used to talk about him. Didn't he quit broadcasting in the early 60's and then dropped out of sight?

That sounds about right. He was the radio voice of the Seattle Rainiers, and we always thought he was the best. The Seattle Rainiers and Sick's Stadium were an important part of my childhood.
