I have been an Atlanta Braves fan since they sucked beyond belief back in the ’80s.  They were always on TBS and became my favorite team.  And through all those losing seasons I watched as I learned the game, there was that familiar, witty, sarcastic commentary from Skip Caray that made it all easier to accept.  Well, Mr. Caray passed away on Sunday in his sleep.  I’m shocked and saddened by this.  Not having Skip Caray around makes baseball that much less enjoyable.  No doubt his Pop greeted him at the pearly gates.

The man was good at what he did.  He knew his stuff and had many memorable great calls.  But I will never forget this one.  Quite possibly his greatest…

“The 2-1. Swung, line drive, left field! One run is in! Here comes Bream! Throw to the plate! He is … safe! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win!”

Rest in peace, Skip.  You will be missed.
