Bye, Boog. :(

According to Carroll Rogers at the AJC, "Braves announcer Jon "Boog" Sciambi is leaving Fox Sports South and Sports South to take a full-time position at ESPN." Full article here.

Dear Boog,

The nation needs to know how awesome you are, and I'm glad you'll be on a larger stage. You will be greatly missed in Atlanta, especially by Braves fans who didn't quite "get" Joe before your snarky sense of humor tempered his dry sense of humor. I think we've heard Joe giggle more with you than in the previous decade. ;)

Best wishes, Boog. Please leave Syndrome in the booth in memoriam.

Loves,
Lauren

this sucks. Joe and Boog were the best broadcasters that we had this year. BYE BOOG! :(

Jo said...

This is a catastrophe. Seriously. Joe & Boog are a combo that NO ONE will ever beat. Is it just me or does it seem like things keep getting worse for the Braves?

Crista, when I went away to college, I got lucky -- almost all the Braves games were still on TBS, save a very rare ESPN game and Wednesdays on FSS. Even if you stay local for college, though, college cable might not carry SportSouth or Fox Sports South. College cable is weird like that. :/ You'll learn to cope, though. :)
