Don't flame on me for saying this but, I can't bare to listen to Ralph Kiner any more. I know the man has health Issues and he's been announcing for the team since the pilgrims came over on the Mayflower, but I just have click to another station when he starts talking. He's hard on the ears and hard to understand. I think it's time he packs it in and turn over the mic to someone else.

I agree with pjalst. I watched the game tonight and even made a comment in the game thread. He sounded drunk. He brought nothing to the table, like Arod in a close game. Somebody should talk some sense into him - he's embarassing himself.

At a certain point, you have to help old people out. You tell them they can't drive anymore. You put them in the home. You take them off the air.

I agree. It's to hard to listen to Kiner anymore.

I'm sorry. I know this probably isn't the spot for this, but when did people start confusing "lose" and "loose?" The words are spelled and pronounced differently. They mean completely different things.

What's next? Will people not be able to tell the difference between "killed" and "kilt?"

I've seen this "lose" v. "loose" thing all over the place in the last 3-5 years. Before that, I'd never seen it. What the heck happened?

That was done on purpose, I'm just busting chops. I did drop the ball on Lose and loose, I guess that's because I'm a product of the NYC public school system and Not Nisky.
