Mets, SF Giants, Notre Dame and College Park

Those who are of another generation, perhaps parents or grandparents of a current high school student, might recall the voice. New York transplants living in the East Bay might recall that voice as the original voice of the New York Mets. Bay Area fans of a generation ago might recall the voice calling Giants games. Then there was Notre Dame football on the radio, Notre Dame highlights on Sunday, and of course, the Cotton Bowl on New Year’s Day. For one sports fan, at least, a College Park High School home football game has a pleasant nostalgic appeal. And it has nothing to do with what happens on the field. Rather, it comes through the loudspeaker, as the gentleman who serves as the Falcons’ public address announcer – – and I’m not sure who he is – – sounds uncannily like the late, great Baseball Hall of Fame announcer Lindsey Nelson.
