Last, Last Call – 2008
It’s time to close the book on the 2008 season. Thanks to all of you who visited this webpage. As the “hot stove league” heats up and moves are made, I’ll check back in right here on the House of Blogs with exclusive interviews of the new Brewers…so stay tuned.
It’s an honor to hold the position of Brewers television play-by-play announcer and responsibility I don’t take lightly. It was also a great thrill to be able to call the post season for TBS and an even bigger thrill to witness the first playoff games in Milwaukee in a generation. The city, the fans, Miller Park had all the “national-types” talking. Milwaukee showed very well on the big stage…just like we knew it would. Way to go!
Recently, I signed a five year extension that will keep me in Milwaukee until the end of the 2013 season, at least. My family and I are thrilled. We love it here and feel blessed to be in such a special community.
Bill Schroeder signed a multi-year deal with the Brewers, as well, which I’m very happy about. I think he breaks down a game as well as anyone in the business and he’s a pleasure to work with on a nightly basis. He’s one of my best buds.
Special thanks to my on-air colleagues Jeff Cirillo, Davey Nelson, Jeff Grayson, Trenni Kusnierek and the glue that holds it all together, Craig Coshun, a pro’s pro!
And a big thank you to our entire Brewers TV crew, led in the truck by John Walsh, Ryan Schaber, Michael Oddino, Brian Mikolajek, and Brent Vallenti. Most of them will be busy with Bucks Basketball this winter but we all look forward to re-assembling for Spring Training baseball, which will be here before you know it.
I hope you have great off-season. I’m going to be hanging with the family, tuning up my snow blower and preparing for the winter. I’ll leave you with my some of my favorite highlights of the 2008 season:
