Until you get heard
I've been heard! After last year's WV Derby, I mentioned being disappointed with the call of the race:
I'm not sure who ESPN brought in to call the race, but I was unimpressed. (You can visit NTRA to hear it for yourself.) Maybe some year they'll let Mountaineer's excellent Peter Berry make the call. (Turf Luck, Aug 12, 2006)Well, some year has arrived. Bill Mooney reports that Peter Berry is to be the voice of W. Va. Derby. Ah, the power of the dreadful blogger! OK, it's more likely that there's some other cause for this, but still, it's wonderful that folks around the country will get to hear Berry's lovely Australian accent make the call.
Meanwhile, there will be some big names gracing Mountaineer on Saturday: Randy Moss, Jay Privman, and Jerry Bailey will be there, not to mention yours truly and the rest of the Castle crew. Hmmm.... let's test this powerful blog thing:
I'm thinking that it's a shame ESPN doesn't invite local bloggers to sit in the broadcasting tent with Bailey and Moss. Maybe some year they'll invite Mountaineer's own Quinella Queen to join them.
