Bob Uecker is having heart surgery and will miss the next 10-12 weeks. We wish Bob all the best and hope for a speedy recovery. In his honor we are re-posting one of our earliest posts, 10 reasons Bob Uecker is better than whoever your announcer is. A post that got me a phone call from the police and some nasty emails. Good times.
It's really not going to be the same without Bob Uecker doing the games though. His voice is synonymous with the Brewers and his daily rants are like nothing else in all of baseball. He really is the best.
Sometimes I wonder if most Brewers fans know how lucky they truly are. Sure, the team has never won a World Series and it was 26 years between playoff appearances. Admittedly that stuff sucks, but at the same time we've got Bob Uecker and you don't. Bob Uecker is one of the best announcers in all of baseball and probably one of the coolest guys in all the world. He's like the cool grandpa who buys you beer, plays beer pong with you and your friends, then proceeds to wipe the floor with everyone (If only that stereotype existed.)
We love Bob here and would love nothing more than to slam some Jack Daniels with him in the announcers booth. Now, here's 10 reasons why he is not only awesome but better than every other announcer in baseball.
