Open Thread: WPIX and the 1987 YankeesBy
Ah yes, the pre-YES Network days. Remember when WPIX Channel 11 and MSG broadcast Yankees games? That seems like a lifetime ago now. That’s back when Tim McCarver was actually a pretty good announcer, though he was doing Mets games back then. With all due respect to the guys calling the games now, it’s going to be tough to top the days of Jim Kaat, Bobby Murcer, and Phil Rizzuto in the booth.
Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. As far as local sports go, all you’ve got is the Nets at the Knicks in each teams’ first preseason game (7:30pm ET on MSG). Talk about anything you like here, go bananas.
