2010-04-05 09:30:00Season Opener RoundtableI used to quite like the late Harry Kalas and Richie Ashburn on Phillies TV broadcasts, where they were dryly humorous. But they would rotate over to the radio side and just... not talk. You would hear about two minutes of crowd noise, then a faint "pop" sound and Kalas would say "Ball," then go back to maintaining radio silence. (Steven Goldman)
