Joe Buck would

"Personally, I'd love it," Buck said the other day. "We've always toyed with the idea of having the hometown guy involved in a World Series broadcast. I'm from that camp. In my dad's era, we paid a nod of tribute to the greats. And there's no one like Vin, or close to Vin.
"I'd happily step aside to hear his voice (on the World Series). I would not fight that at all. That's just how I grew up."

Vin Scully is the DaVinci of baseball broadcasters. It is a pleasure to listen to him call a game as he paints a picture of the action on the field. An absolute professional in every sense of the word. It's not as easy as one would think, calling a baseball game, but he consistently keeps the listener interested in the game. He's the best in the business.

Good story on Joe Buck's father. He always has been in my top 10, make that top 5 in sports broadcasting history. Besides his stellar work with the St. Louis Cardinals and broadcasting Monday Night football with Hank Stram commentating back in the 70's and 80's, people who remember the early days of the American Football League recall Jack Buck broadcasting games. In the early days of the AFL, it was ABC who televised those games back then. Jack Buck gave the AFL immediate credibility when the AFL was just a fledgling league.
