Chuck Thompson’s is the only voice I hear from way back on those summer afternoons with a transistor radio sitting on the picnic table in my back yard while my family eats crabs. 

He was the Orioles and the Colts.   “Unitas...Berry....touchdown” was as iconic as “Go to war, Miss Agnes!”  

His speech on being inducted into Cooperstown was as beautiful and warm as the man himself.  That he considered himself a friend to all his listeners.

He was. 



Ain't the beer cold!

In the late 90s I was driving on the beltway up around Security Boulevard/Liberty Road area and I passed Chuck Thompson.   He was driving a big old Lincoln Continental or Cadillac or something of that ilk.

And his license plate frame on the back said "Ain't the beer cold".
