We've featured Dick Stockton numerous times on this site, even naming the NFL version of the Pammies after the longtime announcer.  There's no questioning Stockton's great career in broadcasting, but it's still a little puzzling to think multiple networks are still employing him to broadcast postseason games in 2013.  It's like the audio version of seeing Willie Mays with the Mets.  During last night's Pirates-Cardinals Game 5, a deciding game in the series, many fans were vocal on Twitter wondering if Stockton was watching the same game.  As always, these are Real Tweets from Real People... I'm just glad I don't have to hear Dick Stockton pronounce "Tabata" for another year. Or get the winning team wrong. — Metstradamus (@Metstradamus) October 10, 2013 Really starting to suspect Dick Stockton has absolutely no interest in baseball. — Steve Lepore (@stevelepore) October 10, 2013 Dick Stockton just identified right fielder Carlos Beltrán as Matt Holliday, never corrected himself. Keep on keepin' on, Stocky. — robneyer (@robneyer) October 10, 2013 With Pat Summeral gone, I'm glad to see Dick Stockton has taken over the "awkward read of a tv show promo" mantle. — Gus Ramsey (@GusRamsey) October 10, 2013 I'm almost as happy about not having to listen to Dick Stockton anymore as I am about another NLCS. #stlcards — Greg C (@greggy_fresh) October 10, 2013 Dick Stockton with a classic play by play tonight. Only 50 wrong calls on my count. Kudos Dick. — Jeff Roth (@jrpt) October 10, 2013 Good call, Dick Stockton. A pissed off Hawk Harrelson would be proud. #postseason #cardinals — Ernest Tolden (@ETolden4) October 10, 2013 Next season Dick Stockton will replace Ron Burgundy in those Dodge Durango commercials. — Tony Pirollo (@theTonyPirollo) October 10, 2013 Is Dick Stockton even at this game? He seems lost. — Steven Anderson (@DoTheViewYM) October 10, 2013 Dick Stockton is trending on Twitter. Does he know what that means? — Brian Mortensen (@brian_mortensen) October 10, 2013 Honest question. Does Dick Stockton's seat face the field? — Joedy McCreary (@JoedyAP) October 10, 2013 Given all the tweets I'm seeing about Dick Stockton, perhaps the Taiwan feed was a good call. — Taylor Ericson (@TaylorEricson) October 10, 2013
