Let’s reminisce!

Cardinal Broadcasters

It is official. Mike Shannon is retiring after the 2021 season, his fiftieth season in the booth. It is sad, the end of an era, but the Moon Man has more than earned his retirement. I would say to pour out a frosty, cold one in his honor, but Shannon would never approve of wasting a beverage like that.

To help me cope with this blunt and cruel reminder of the passage of time and our fleeting human existence, I have turned to the past. This may be Mike Shannon’s final year in the booth, but in 50 years he has made a lot of memories, more than even I know about. So share your favorite #ShannonMemory with me. I have found some online already and will share them with you now.
