Peter is the man. You could tell he was getting on in years, but he still seemed sharp as a tack. How old is he, anyways?

ESPN.com just posted this a few minutes ago...not much info but I hope the "good condition" part is accurate. At the bottom there is a link to the ESPN site where you can send a get well message:

Longtime ESPN baseball analyst Peter Gammons is listed in good condition Wednesday, resting in intensive care after undergoing an operation to treat a brain aneurysm Tuesday. Gammons suffered the aneurysm Tuesday morning near his home on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. He was airlifted to a Boston hospital, where the surgery was performed.

"Peter is resting comfortably after surgical repair of a brain aneurysm," Gammons' wife, Gloria, said in a statement. "We appreciate all of your good wishes and ask that you keep Peter in your thoughts and prayers. Please understand that we are asking for our privacy at this time as we focus on Peter's recovery."


Several ballplayers called the press box Tuesday during Boston's game against the New York Mets for updates on Gammons' condition.

"Peter is one of the Hall of Famers we have on TV, and everybody has a lot of respect for him," Mets pitcher Pedro Martinez said after the game. "I wish him well."

At the beginning of the Yankees-Braves broadcast on ESPN, it was reported that Gammons was responding to his wife's voice. ;-D
