He and Gino were so good you'd shut off the TV sound and put on the radio while watching. R.I.P Gil.

Yup.

I would have liked to hear him give the call for "The Call" in SB XLIX. Though I love Kevin Harlan's call, I would have loved to hear Gil. His replacement was not even close.

Funny, the Old Guys calling the Red Sox--Joe "Swing and a Pop-up" Castiglione and Some Guy Who Remembers Tris Speaker--mentioned listening to Gil back in the day when the Pats sucked so bad they were perpetually blacked out.

The good ol' days, when you never saw a home game unless you paid for a ticket. I think I started listening in '67 or '68.

I still recall a friend who in about '95 declared, "well, at least the Red Sox will win a world Series before the Patriots ever win a Super Bowl!"

I got the DVDs back then

so I could hear the Gil and Geno calls of the game.

Verne Troyer, the actor and stunt performer best known for playing Mini-Me in the Austin Powers movie franchise, died on Saturday. He was 49.

His spokesman confirmed his death but did not specify the cause or where he died.

A statement on Mr. Troyer’s Facebook page on Saturday said he had gone through a “recent time of adversity” and that “depression and suicide are very serious issues.”

The statement said: “Verne was also a fighter when it came to his own battles. Over the years he’s struggled and won, struggled and won, struggled and fought some more, but unfortunately this time was too much.”

It really is too bad because he was slated to play the kid in the Harambe biopic.

Given what has been released, he passed away a year ago:
“MRI scans confirmed a ‘rapidly progressive destructive brain disease’.
“Professor Judith Cross (the Prince of Wales’ Chair of Childhood Epilepsy at UCL – Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health and also Honorary Consultant in Paediatric Neurology) reviewed Alfie at the PICU on 15 June 2017. Professor Cross concluded that Alfie has a progressive, ultimately fatal neurodegenerative condition, most likely a mitochondrial disorder and that “even if it were possible to stop Alfie’s seizures, which did not look likely given his poor response to anti-convulsant treatment to date, his brain is entirely beyond recovery.”
