My love for Mike Shannon is proud and unabashed. I will sing it from the highest mountain. A few weeks back I listed some of my all time favorite Shannonisms, and I really could have listed quite a few more. In honor of our favorite Cardinals radio personality's seventy-seventh anniversary of birth, the St. Louis Post Dispatch published a quiz challenging the reader to finish the classic Shannonism.
Like I said, I am basically an expert.
Anyway, because I adore Mike Shannon I wanted to wish him a happy birthday and since I already covered Shannonisms, I thought I would just post some great Shannon calls and moments instead. In seventy-seven years, one sees some fantastic things.
Happy birthday, Moon Man!
