Odin sacrificed an eye, trading eyesight for insight, and disguised as Vegtam the Wanderer, traveled the world in quest of the wisdom of the ages. I have the eye sacrifice part covered. I'll get back to you when that wisdom thing kicks in.

Halsey Hall, "Holy Cow!"

Halsey Hall was the first play-by-play announcer for the Minnesota Twins. He was famous for eating green onions, smoking bad cigars and frankly, his folksy ineptitude. This is a link that captures him in all his glory.

LISTEN TO THE LINK!

Bankrupt or not, thank god I was raised a Dodger Fan. I have had the greatest play by play Announcer in the game... Vin Scully.

I thought Harry Cary was "Holy Cow"? What's up with that?

Gunnar don't get your panties in a bunch. ;-)

Harry might have borrowed it, but it was Halsey's calling card.

Red Barber. Period.
