Happy birthday to every Cardinals fan's favorite announcer (well, since Jack Buck died and Joe moved to Fox)...

  1. I am assuming that this is his wife, but she sure looks a lot younger than him! I will have to check this one out! You got me curious now! :) Anyway, happy late birthday Mike! He is an unique one!

  2. An unique one? Is that grammatically correct?
