The heir apparent??

I feel as though I am living with the heir apparent to the Cosell Kingdom.  That’s right, the late Howard Cosell’s estate.  At any given moment throughout the day I am provided with a running commentary of what I’m doing, how I sound (more on that later) and any other random piece of information I might (or might not) find of interest. 

As an example, we’ve had a bit of a cough thing going around our house this week.  I find myself coughing more and sneezing more.  I then hear, “Cough”…”Blow Nose”…”Bess You, Baby”.   It’s like living on a reality show set. 

Then I’ll drop something and hear, “Uh oh” in case I wasn’t aware that I dropped the lid to the pot on the tile floor.  There’s also “dog”, “cwacker”, “muuuk (milk for those who don’t speak the native tongue)” and my favorite “twash twuck”. 

There is no pride with this little sportscaster around.  I’ll be carrying her up to bed and not even realize that the soda I’d just swallowed had a bit of an effect on <ahem> my system.  And, then I’ll hear it, “Buuhp”.  No, that wasn’t the sound I made, that’s how my little prognosticator says it. 

It could be worse.  She could have access to the internet and have a blog herself.

    I am so sorry Howard Cosell isn’t around anymore.

    To set the record straight, Howard Cosell DID NOT say “Look at that little monkey run” when he was referring to Redskins wide receiver Alvin Garrett. Cosell made this remark 11 years earlier in 1972 in reference to a play by Kansas City Chiefs Mike Adamle. It was 1983 on Monday Night Football when Cosell made his comment about Alvin Garrett which was “That little monkey gets loose doesn’t he.”

    I am still looking for a sound byte or video clip of Howard Cosell saying “Look at that little monkey run.” I hear that it might be contained in a Preseason 1972 K.C. Chiefs @ Giants 07/29/72 “Hall of Fame” Game. Can anyone locate an actual clip?

  2. I found your blog on MSN Search. Nice writing. I will check back to read more.
