    I don't even feel like posting a link. He died in the booth during pre-game today. Not that I didn't expect it to happen sometime soon considering how old he was, but it still stings pretty bad. The games will just never sound the same.

    RIP Harry.

    I don't think I could imagine a better way to go if I was Harry. He died in the very spot he loved the most, doing what he loved to do more than anything else.

    Death doesn't come with much more dignity than that.

    Not to mention he got to see the Phils win another WS before he went.

    My condolences.

    And at the risk of sounding selfish, I got to see him call one.
