    You need to get those in sports that follow you to keep up with announcements that the Golden Eagles are playing.

    Steve Bertrand lost ALL credibility as a news commentator this A.M. commenting on the large number of rounds fired @ the Boston suspect(s) by the police….From the warmth of a studio in CHICAGO, w/ no knowledge of the situation, circumstances, etc. no such comment should have been issued….
