You see – when we think of Ernie Harwell, most people automatically hear his renowned voice. A voice that for decade after decade filled every open space of air, where ever there was a loyal Tiger fan and a dusty old radio. His voice echoed from basement-workshops and backyard-garages with pennants tacked to the walls, from front porches on warm summer nights and corner gas stations during the heat of a slow Sunday afternoon. Wherever you were at, Ernie was there with you and he took you to the game, from the very first pitch to the final out in the last inning, when you couldn’t be there in person, but had the time to listen to his colorful, fabulous descriptions of the action.
Even now, when we reflect back to days and years gone by, times past, we can still see ourselves wherever we were at, doing whatever we were doing way back then and still hear that voice in the background doing what he loved to do for us.
He announced many games during many different things that were happening in and around the city of Detroit and Ernie became one of those people who put many others at ease. Whenever they heard his voice coming from the radio, you were confident that when Ernie was broadcasting the day’s game, everything was all right in the world.
I have never heard of anyone who was as well liked as Ernie or who has come across as being as nice a fellow as he was. Many souls will miss him greatly, as his passing brings us all just a little step closer to our own mortality.
Another season of our lives down here has ended and now a famous announcer calls the plays above, just waiting to introduce us to the rest of the team who has gone on and joined the big game before we do.
Thanks for the Memories Sir and for being the great role model that you were and by the way, until I get there, can you save me a seat behind the dugout! I still need a few more autographs!
Rest In Peace.
I am not to happy with what he has done in his marriage, but they also say that it takes two to tango, or so I’ve heard. But there was one thing that I was glad to see happen regarding the New Nike commercial.
Go find it on You Tube, and see how you think you may have handled it. I feel that he did an exceptional job with his comments about it, and if he actually meant them, then he won that round as far as I’m concerned.
In the commercial, you see a frozen picture of Woods and there is a voice talking to him which is supposed to be his father, from heaven and he is asking him if he learned anything etc. etc.. etc…
Woods commented that his dad always had a way of talking to him when he needed it. Those aren’t his words exactly, but that’s what I got out of his comments about the commercial.
Sure, Nike ran the ad for exposure, but for whatever reason it was done, many people would have gotten mad about the use of their father.
For his reaction to this ad, I have to salute his coolness and adult demeanor. Maybe his problems have helped him to grow more as a person than in the past.
Thumbs Up, Mark Levin is an American guy with an agenda of clearing out and bringing light to the corrupt B.S. that takes place in this great country daily. He is the guy who is on the line for the regular American Citizen and not trying to sell a bunch of crap to get rich.
Oh sure he has a book to sell or maybe a few of them, I’m not sure. But one thing is different from the way Sean Hannity does it, he actually cares about what is going on in America and doesn’t give a rats ass if he walks away with a dime while doing it.
In my further oppinion, Sean Hannity on the other hand is one of those guys who is charging for Sign-Up on his site and selling what he can to line his wallet. He says he cares about America but when you go to his site to see what his spiel is all about they want you to register and pay $5.95 a month before you can hear any of his archived radio broadcasts.
Now either he is making millions from people wanting to hear his shows for $5.95 a month or he is just set on trying to make a buck. I doubt it’s millions so he would probably do better to drop the $5.95 charge per month and to make his material free. Then I may want to buy his book. NOT. By charging, he’s got as much of a chance to get rich as old Uncle Jed did while hunting for food. It isn’t likely to happen!
So listen up to Mark Levin, because he is the guy who is doing it for us for FREE and trying to make America a better place for all and for generations to come!

The new Burger commercial with the crazy King in it, is causing health care professionals of the psychological type to be outraged. (find it on You Tube, search- crazy king, the king or burger king)
They all have their boxers and panties in a wad and they are fit to be tied, (with a rope or straight jacket, whatever their preference) and are speaking out against the ad.
They feel that the crazy King is making fun of the poor unfortunate souls that these doctors deal with on a daily basis. The mentally challenged and crazy bunch who reside in mental institutions across America and around the globe.
Well, how do you think our beloved senior citizens in America felt, when the “Where’s the Beef” lady was shouting out about cheep hamburgers being served by the fast food industry in America, making them all look like a bunch of cheep penny-pinching Kooks!
How about those individuals who are from Southern decent, who had to withstand years of torture by the “Hey, Does that thing got a Hemi” guy in the Dodge commercials? That didn’t make the Southerners look to awful brilliant now did it!
“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” is another one that picked on seniors for a long long time.
How about this one, it offended millions across America. The hairless bug-eyed Chihuahua (little dog) that ran around Shouting “YOQUERO TACO BELL”. They stood up to the torment of being labeled as eating Mexican food, just because of their name. Mexican Chihuahua. They stood there on their short little legs and took it for years and without so much as a squeak from any of them. Even they knew it was all in fun!
So all I have to say is lighten up. You shrinks and psychiatric doctors aren’t Gods, so get off your high horse and learn to laugh about things a little bit, I’m warning you all, Because I hear that in the next Commercial, they are going to turn the tables on you. So you better learn to laugh about things and do it quick, before the two guys in white suits come after YOU!
When the faculty of a school lets bullying happen to the extent that it did in this case, they should be Jailed! Incompetence is not an excuse, ever, by anyone, to not at least seek help and get suggestions on how to handle a situation that could escalate into violence.
Apparently what had happened was the students began to pick on a girl because of a failed romance with a popular boy in the school. The group of juvenile delinquents harassed the girl to the point of taking her own life because of the torment she had been going through for months.
Now the prosecutor, has several of the bullies up on some serious charges which they indeed should be.
Northwestern District Attorney Elizabeth Scheibel announced the charges and to many peoples amazement, they didn’t include not one single charge brought against any of the faculty at the school or in the ruling board of education for the school district.
Scheibel apparently stated that no charges were being sought against the faculty because they had “a lack of understanding of harassment associated with teen dating relationships,” and the school’s code of conduct was interpreted and enforced in an “inconsistent” manner. Meaning the faculty failed to follow through on rule enforcement and discipline in many other instances as well.
Then answer me this, Why the hell are those people allowed to run and fill critical positions at a high school, if they are not educated enough to perform the job duties that go along with the positions!
Like I said before, Ignorance is not an excuse! EVER! Tell any judge you didn’t know the law and listen to what they tell you oh sad unknowing individual. I will add further that whoever the charging prosecutor may be, they are as guilty of the same negligence and need to also spend a few good years behind bars for not charging the faculty, all the way up to Gus Sayer the school Superintendent. (Maybe a few of them are related some how or something? Someone should check into that!)
The students acted wrongly and should all be tried, but the administration at the school failed to act in prevention of what they were informed was happening and should equally be tried as well, because their lack of action contributed directly to the girls death.
Apparently according to Massachusetts representative John Scibak, there is a Bully Awareness bill being worked on there, but he didn’t mention anything about investigating why the adults involved aren’t being brought up on charges. All he basically commented to, was that they should possibly be reprimanded for their failures to prevent this tragic act of bullying from taking place. Why isn’t anyone going after the acting adults in this case? What the hell is being covered up in that state!
If that county keeps these people in the school system, there’s a lot that we as parents won’t tolerate and that would definitely be a major one, because that girl could have been any one of our children! That kind of ignorance of individuals in administrative positions won’t be tolerated, for the safety of all of the kids!
Students and parents alike, must take a stand to never let this happen again, and see this through or else the next individual taking their life could hit closer to home!
At-least, Do what’s right Now for Phoebe Prince.
You know I ran across this little guy the other day on YOU TUBE and I just had to give him a spot here at Moneys Tight.
This precious little boy is Great, and the happiness that shows on his face with that wide open mouth grin is just to much. I can’t remember the last time I experienced that kind of true joy and fun like he is obviously having.
This little guy is talented and I sure hope that his parents lead him towards a career in music, for as long as he wants to play.
This is what Free Range Children SHOULD BE ABOUT. Not RUNNING LOSE!
It also shows me why Grandmas and Aunts always squeeze kids cheeks!
