    Some of my fondest childhood memories are of being in the backyard with my dad on a crisp fall afternoon listening to Ray broadcast Gophers FB games while chopping wood, raking leaves, etc. And of course listening to Ray call Gophers BB in the days when they were hard to come by on TV. He was a classic commentator with a smooth, warm voice, an inviting cadence, unassuming, genuine, a true Gopher through and through.

    I was going to say that he was all those wonderful things despite being a gopher.

    I kid, of course. Most of us Daks were Viking and gopher fans until the scales fell from our hockey eyes and we saw the light. Ray, though, was all good. And I think people like Ray played a big part in our lives because we consumed more sports through radio in those days. Like Halsey Hall, Ray Scott and Herb Carneal. Radio allowed you to be doing other things, so thinking of Ray Christiensen evokes memories of other things that we hold dear, such as spending time with your father.

    He died at least 2 years ago, they just kept him propped up with meds and machines.

    The man's an icon though, at least in Detroit.

    You can always fire/hire a good coach. You can always fire/hire a good GM. Heck, you can always gut the front office.

    But you're SOL if you don't have a good owner. We were lucky to have him.

    Rumor always was the kids would sell one of the teams once Mr. I died. Guess we'll play the waiting game.

    It will be the Tigers. It's been said for years that only Mike cared much about baseball.

    I just learned that he was from Minneapolis, got his start at Uncle Sam's, which eventually became The Depot, and finally 1st Ave - owned by Prince and featured in Purple Rain.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.
