I didn't catch that game, but it reminds me of the original Minnesota Twins broadcast team from the early 60s. They had a guy named Halsey Hall doing the games, and I think he'd already had a pitcher of Martini's before the first pitch most days. Oh well, they were sponsored by the Hamm's Beer Bear from the "Land of sky blue waters".
Oh, and he also puffed a big stogey while he did the play by play.

The truly insulting part is when O'Donnell compliments Cable for going for 2 at the end. I understand why Cable would do so, but O'Donnell says it as if calling a preaseason game is beneath him and he wants it to end as quickly as possible. He's only calling the game to help his name recognition, not because he's interested in football. Face it, the guy is a permanent also-ran sports guy behind Radnich and Ibanez.
