Hey maybe there'll be a rain delay so we can listen to Waite Hoyt

It's going to be cold and wet out there today so bundle up and check the batteries in your transistor radio. You don't want to miss all those stories.

Aw! It's 2009 isn't it? In that case, stay home, watch the games on TV and, during commercial breaks, re-read this line from Hoyt's Wikipedia page: "when he wasn't playing baseball he spent days working as a funeral director and nights appearing on vaudeville." And try to understand how we went from that to this: "After graduating from St. Louis Country Day School, Buck began his broadcasting career in 1989, while he was an undergraduate at Indiana University."

Oh, you national pastime!
