JJ to Join HK, LA, CW, and SF

Jim Jackson to join the Phillies broadcast team as the pre-game and post-game host:

"We are pleased to have a broadcaster of Jim's caliber in our mix," said Brooks. "He brings a lot of experience with him, and a passion for baseball that not too many people were aware of."

Jackson, 43, has been broadcasting hockey games for 20 years, the last 14 with the National Hockey League's Philadelphia Flyers, but this will not be his first baseball experience.

I've always liked Jim Jackson enough, so I'm fine with the move. It should be interesting to see what kind of implications this has on the future of the Phillies broadcast booth though...the battle between Scott Franzke and Jim Jackson to replace Harry Kalas may indeed be on.

I want to know how he gets his moustache to do that. He must be the world's most careful shaver. Or he uses really small razors for maximum precision. (Mach 0.3?)

Okay, this guy looks like the Tenn. Titans head coach Jeff Fisher.

What the freak? Alito throws out the first pitch at a Phillies-D'Rays game...in a Tampa jersey?

I do like this picture, though. It's like he's looking RIGHT AT ME.
