Don't forget. I need to exchange phone numbers with some of you so we can talk by cell phone at key times. I can't be there in person, but I'd love to be able to talk to some of you and share in your excitement.
Rory Markas, the lead radio and TV announcer for the Angels, as well as working USC basketball and FOX 11 news some mornings during the baseball off-season...has been found dead at his home. He was only 54 years old.
I knew Rory at least a little bit better than an acquaintance. He helped me when I first starting working part time at KNX radio, and we shared some meals together in the Angel Stadium press box before games.
Very sad news.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
