Happy Birthday to Bob Prince, The Gunner

A hearty birthday salute to Bob Prince, "The Gunner," legendary voice of the Pirates and a one-of-a-kind Hall of Fame baseball announcer. 

And a big Thank You to whomever compiled this collection of Gunnerisms.

The word "Colorful" doesn't even begin to describe Bob Prince and his larger-than-life persona.  He lived large: He was the walking, talking, living embodiment of incisive commentary, laser-sharp wit, encyclopedic baseball knowledge, kindness and generosity.

"He'd a needed an oar to hit that one."  Here's to ya, Gunner.
