Hopes for a speedy and complete recovery go out to former major league catcher, current real-life announcer for the Milwaukee Brewers, and greatest movie play-by-play man ever Bob Uecker.
Uecker announced today that he will be having heart surgery on Friday. Doctors say his prognosis is good and we can expect to see Uecker back in front of the microphone in 10 to 12 weeks. Which is good, because that means Norm MacDonald can keep telling this story. God speed, Harry Doyle (although I will always remember Uecker as “Mr. Baseball).
Oh, the first person who makes a “Mr. Belvedere” joke…I will come to your house and hit you in the face with a shovel.
