So long, Skip Caray

Who knows how many nights I've driven home from Bristol listening to the Braves on the radio, with Skip Caray making the call.

One of his calls that gives me a chill every time I see and hear it replayed on TV is described here, from the 1992 playoffs: "Here comes Bream! Here's the throw to the plate! He iiiiiiiisssssssss ... safe! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win! ... Braves win!"

When he got excited, something exciting really was happening.
