Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The words of the title comprised the trademark, tagline and rallying cry of radio and TV broadcaster Thompson until some Bible Belters complained and he dropped it. But annoyances like that are minor to a man inducted into the Broadcasters Wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1993 and who has been on the air since 1939. Thompson started his career in Pennsylvania covering the A's and Phillies, then the Senators in Washington. He joined the Orioles in Baltimore in 1953 and, except for a brief hiatus, has been with them ever since; he also broadcast Colts' football games for some 30 years. Writing with freelancer Beard, Thompson offers dozens of anecdotes, some serious, most not, and his sense of humor relies heavily on practical jokes and booze-generated exploits. This is a typical sportscaster's autobiography, but it should sell like crabcakes in Maryland. Photos not seen by PW.

Format: Paperback
chuck thompson was a great broadcaster for the colts and orioles
during the 60's and 70's.

this book gives you a more in depth coverage of the man marylanders
knew so well...

chuck was a true gentleman and the two times i met him, he took
several minutes to talk with you and treat you like a neighbor.

a good book to keep as a keepsake or give as a gift to any orioles
or colts fan. chuck the beer was cold when you called them
so many hot baltimore nights and cool baltimore falls.....

Great, fast read written by my great Uncle Chuck. He was radio and TV sports announcer for the Baltinore Orioles well into his late 70s. He was inducted into baseball broadcaster HOF at Coipersrown.
