The current Lakers management and Mike D'Antoni simply are not champions. Dr. Buss would be mortified.
And was Flea referring to Paul Geary or Mike Mangini? Because Mangini is a GREAT drummer, but he joined in... 1994, I think?
Hey Shannon, should Mike have started Brister at QB after No.7 retired? I think so. This is where it all went wrong?!?!

San Diego Padres announcer Jerry Coleman passed away on Sunday. Coleman also won World Series championships with the Yankees and fought in World War II and Korea. He was also the Padres' manager for a year. He was a real American hero, who just happened to be one of the best baseball announcers ever! I remember hearing him, Jack Buck, Ernie Harwell and so many greats on the radio growing up...there's only a few left these days, we'd better enjoy Vin Scully of the Dodgers and Mike Shannon of the Cardinals while we have a chance...Thank you, Mr. Coleman, for doing your job well and for your service to your country. Rest in pease, Sir.

Redskins lost mike shannon I wonder who will fill his spot.
Two coaches were fired today Leslie Frazier and Mike Shannon. Many more on the hot seat. Funny listening to the television guys yesterday. I disagree the Rams need a quarterback, offense line, running back, deep threat wide receiver, corner back, fire Les Sneed, special teams coach and the offensive coach. 7-9 doesn't cut it. Stan Kronecke doesn't want winning product then we shouldn't be to upset with losing team.

After McCartney cut an ebullient demo of “One and One Is Two” for Kramer in a Paris hotel room in January 1964, Lennon cracked, “Billy J. is finished when he records this.” Harrison asked if they could take out the “one and one is two” part. Kramer and the Fourmost passed, so it went to another Liverpool band, The Strangers with Mike Shannon. Their version lost the demo’s swing and did not chart when released on May 8, 1964.

Game 3 of the World Series was on MLB Network Radio on my drive home. Was great to hear Mike Shannon and John Rooney's voices again.
I don't love the Cardinals because they are in the playoffs year-in year-out, or that they win championships from time to time, though I'm thrilled when they do. I love them win or lose because when I began playing the game of baseball at the age of five at the old ball fields in Carthage next to the golf course, growing up in Southwest Missouri they were the team on the radio. They were the professionals I aspired to be as I learned the fundamentals of the sport. They were the toughness and skill of Bob Gibson and the speed of Lou Brock. They were the timeless names like Curt Flood, Dal Maxvill, Julian Javier, Roger Maris, Mike Shannon and even Tim McCarver, all introduced to me by Harry Caray and later Jack Buck. They were heroic figures and as much a part of my formative experience in baseball as the smell of glove leather and freshly cut grass, the pop of the mitt and the crack of the bat. Those Cardinals represented for me the pinnacle of the road that I'd just entered and the goal I could one ...
I really don't know why everyone is fussing about Tim McCarvers? I always kind of liked him. What they should do since the World Series is about the best ... best teams, best umpires, etc. Have the best announcers do the game. Have a match up like Vince Scully and Mike Shannon do the broadcast. They could take a fan poll and determine who is the best. Those are my thoughts.
I guess it's time to go back to my regular profile picture and Timeline cover photo to the regular stuff now that the World Series is over! Game 7 wasn't necessary, and it was fun to be able to show my support for the team I grew up listening to, with the late Jack Buck giving the play by play action, with Mike Shannon as the color man! Our Cardinals really tried to take this series, but they just couldn't get a decent hit off the Red Sox pitching crew! Mike Matheney did not do anything wrong at all, and it wasn't his fault that the Cardinals lost the World Series this year. For his first season as team manager, Mike Matheney has done a phenominal job! Our Cardinals are still NLCS champions, and we still have the pennant!
Tonight just might almost... almost... make up for Lou Brock, Curt Flood, Roger Maris, Orlando Cepeda, Julian Javier, Mike Shannon, Tim McCarver, Dal Maxvill, Bob Gibson and everyone else who broke my heart back in the Impossible Dream season of 1967!
Why is Cardinal Nation so large? Great broadcasters: Harry Carry, Jack Buck, Mike Shannon.
I wish Mike Shannon and Tim McCarver would narrate my life play by play.
Cy Young Award Winner What?!? Clayton Kershaw Who?!? Not this time, Not in WACHtober! (On a side note.. was that not the most boringly called game ever??? I even like Cal, but seriously what a snooze-fest! Next game I'll be turning the sound on the TV down, and Mike Shannon on the radio up!)
The best part of Cardinal baseball tonight? Sir Mike Shannon returning to the broadcast with standing ovation. Right ?
Mike Shannon was pleased with the tonight!
"The pitch to Bruce Harper ..." Welcome back Mike Shannon we missed you.
Wainwright leads Cards past Nationals 4-3 . Carlos Beltran homered and Adam Wainwright picked up his 18th win as the St. Louis Cardinals moved closer to capturing their first NL Central title since 2009 with a 4-3 win over the Washington Nationals on Monday. St. Louis has won three out of four and lowered its magic number to four. The Cardinals, who have clinched a post-season berth, remain two games ahead of Pittsburgh. Both teams have five games left. Cincinnati is three games back after losing 3-2 to the New York Mets. Washington has lost two in a row. The Nationals are on the brink of elimination five games behind Cincinnati in the battle for the last wild card spot with five games remaining. Beltran's two-run homer in the fifth off rookie Tanner Roark broke a 2-2 tie. It was Beltran's team-leading 24th round-tripper of the season and first since Aug. 24 covering 91 at-bats. Wainwright (18-9) gave up two runs on six hits over seven-plus innings. He struck out five, giving him a career-high 214 on the ...

Great Cardinals victory tonight. Bullpen lights out. And the return of Mike Shannon was a kicker. Enjoyed the heck out of him tonight on radio driving back from ballgame on Beltran's homer. "Get up,get up,get up baby. Home Run Carlos Beltran" .Jack Buck is smiling up in Cardinals Heaven.

It was so great to hear Mike Shannon's voice tonight on the Cardinals' radio broadcast; Mike has been out for a while after heart surgery. Not the same without him in the booth. Love the way he says "Ste-rike." Cards winning, Pirates and Reds both tied in their games. (yes, still rooting for Royals but a succession of miracles would be needed for them to sneak into wild card).
I'm sorry & - I'm normally listen to you guys, but I missed Mike Shannon on loud
Mike Shannon says he knows who should be tonight's closer . Wainwright
love listening to Mike Shannon on the radio, great to have him back.
And welcome back Mike Shannon! Shannon to Rooney -- "I know who Matheny will use as closer tonight. Wainwright, he he he."
I like mike Shannon but Wainwright pitching 9 is lunacy
Mike Shannon on KMOX: "I have the answer for who he is going to use as closer tonight." John Rooney: "Who?" Shannon: "Wainwright."
LOL asking Rick who Mike Shannon & Mike Matheny are just to ensure that he hates me. ❤️
Just heard Mike Shannon say, "If you want play-off tickets, now's the time to get'em". Wouldn't say, it's quite that easy but I'm so GLAD, he's Back :) Love Mike!
