A Tribute To Dave

Pretty cool idea by ESPN 710.

710 ESPN Seattle and News Talk 97.3 KIRO FM, the radio home of the Mariners, will broadcast game 5 of the 1995 American League Division Series in tribute to the Hall of Fame broadcaster Dave Niehaus Saturday, November 13, 2010 at 12noon.

“My Oh My – A Tribute to Dave Niehaus” recognizes him as one of the best and most exciting broadcasters in the game. This commercial free replay of a fan favorite game as the Seattle Mariners defeated the New York Yankees in an amazing divisional comeback will include memories and comments from former players and broadcasters including Ken Griffey Jr., Jay Buhner, Rick Rizzs, Harold Reynolds, Ron Fairly and more.

“Dave’s play-by-play speaks for itself, and stands the test of time,” said Carl Gardner, Bonneville Seattle Media Group Vice President and Market Manager. “We can think of no greater tribute to the man than to re-broadcast his master work – the greatest game of his exceptional career.”

Dave Niehaus, the voice of the Seattle Mariners since the team’s inception in 1977, passed away Wednesday, November 10, 2010 at the age of 75. For more information on the passing of Dave Niehaus and to hear an audio montage of his greatest calls, visit www.MyNorthwest.com.

    I am not new to this site. There have been numerous, and I mean numerous occasions, in which I have run into a comment section (on this very site) with comments not pertaining to the thread itself. I am not trying to make this out to be such a huge deal, but I will abide by the encouraged “rules”. It is for this very reason, that I take my comments to sodomojo. They are not well known, but do a fine job, and are not as uptight as certain people. I have been on this site for 2 years.

    Dave’s loss is nothing to take lightly, but you guys are absurd. I have been mourning myself, but it is a Mariners Blog! There is absolutely no need to harp on me for placing a comment in this particular section. I happen to always place whatever is on my mind, in the most recent thread. There is no point in placing it else where, seeing as how no one replies to a comment that is two weeks old. I hope to find one day, a blog that simply provides entertaining and up to date stories (which this one most certainly does), but at the same time answers questions. Even if that section has to be organized in a different area within the site.

    The guidelines are not difficult to follow.

    More to hand…I like a media suggestion: assign a jersey number to Niehaus. Then retire it. Make Niehaus the first member of the Mariners Hall of Fame.
