The Uke

I am grateful that Bob Uecker (like You Ker) still does the commentary on public radio for the Milwaukee Brewers. He's old, like... he has been doing the commentary for the Brewers for 15 years longer than I have been alive. The sound of his voice drags me back to late nights riding in the backseat of a car, half asleep. Back to cookouts, campouts, family gatherings, to backyards, garages, and basements. My dad's side of the family has always been very into the Brewers, so Bob's voice became part of my childhood soundtrack.
