Thanks Indeed, Gordo…
From my earliest years as a Twins fan, I remember listening to John Gordon on the radio and being captivated by that lively, exciting broadcasting style. Put simply, he could make any game (a dramatic masterpiece or ten-run blowout) sound exciting over the airwaves.
Though I’m usually more inclined to watch the games on television, the greatest compliment I can give to Mr. Gordon is that I don’t feel like I’m missing all that much on the times I tune in. He will be sorely missed, as was Herb Carneal by the older generation of Twins fans.
I’ll glad the team (with Plouffe’s walk-off single in the ninth) were able to give him one last chance to emote into the microphone like he has been doing for so long.
-Now that the regular season (and Twins season, sadly) is over, I will be periodically blogging about “what went wrong” in the 2011 season. Suffice it to say, it may just take me all winter to finish that series. I will also keep the blogging community abreast of Twins player movements in the offseason and such topics. The posts will likely be much less frequent, but I won’t be disappearing altogether!
Final Log: 63-99, 5th in AL Central, 32 GB Detroit Tigers
