Video: Harry Caray Fired From Cardinals

This week in the Post-Dispatch, Media Reporter Dan Caesar profiled longtime KMOX and KSDK sportscaster Ron Jacober as he draws near retirement. I’d encourage you to read the whole thing if you’re a nerd like me and enjoy the history of sportscasting in St. Louis.

Chicago Cubs fans doing Harry Caray impressions at Opening Day

There are a few things in life that everyone can do. Very few of us actually practice them, we aren’t expected to be good at it, yet sometimes you just have a natural gift for it. Those things that I’m speaking of are doing the robot (the dance), doing an impression of Chewbacca, and doing an impression of Harry Caray.
