Signs We Are Near The End of Civilization: Tim McCarver is Cutting An Album

Suicide

How many times have I wondered what  a slightly boozy, slightly senile catcher-turned-announcer would sound like singing all the old standards? Well, now my prayers have been answered.

But here’s the thing – by the sound of it, McCarver can really sing. When the Fox telecast cut back from a break they showed the Phillie Phanatic dancing to one of the old classics and play-by-play man Howie Rose made the joke that we weren’t listening to Frank Sinatra play over the PA, but McCarver instead. And after hearing his ‘talk-as-singing’ style that Sinatra made so famous, it was quite a pleasant sound. If you’re a sports fan and a fan of old crooners, this album will be right up your alley as nobody in sports is as old and ‘croony’ as McCarver.

All I see is Shatner doing Rocket Man in a catcher’s mask. I’m simply speechless.
