It's my Parting Shot for some Long Weekend Short Shots...
Yes, I know it's only Tuesday, but I'm finally taking some holiday days...not that I have to really explain myself!
While I'm away, sports on the radio and on the website will be in the capable hands of Drew Wilson. I'm happy to say that my new in-station colleague is here and settled in, after having shared a play-by-play booth with him for the last 13 years...either in Prince Albert or at SaskTel Centre. One thing I really appreciate about Drew is that I found out that I'm actually younger than him...by five whole months! That will make us the oldest tandem in Saskatoon sports broadcasting in several years. I prefer to refer to that as being the "most experienced" duo in Saskatoon sports in many years!
Should I be retracting my "Fire Gibbons" thoughts when it comes to the Blue Jays and their manager? I could, but I think G-M Ross Atkins deserves credit for being able to provide him with capable depth replacements for injured position players and pitching coach Pete Walker should get the kudos for helping Gibby negotiate the bullpen, especially in trying situations!
