Meatless Friday Monday: the Glories of Mike Shannon

Mike Shannon just signed a long term contract extension to broadcast the Cardinals, and in honor of this happy occasion, STLToday has posted this interactive quiz to test your knowledge of the classic Shannonisms of all time.

If you don't know Mike Shannon, think the St. Louis version of Yogi Berra.

Anyway, the quiz doesn't include my favorite Shannonism: one night in New York for a Mets-Cards game, Shannon noted the rather large, beautiful full moon. He said words to this effect: "Just look at that moon! I wish you folks back in St. Louis could see this!"

Feel free to post your (honest) score in the combox. If, like me, your score wasn't so hot, remember how Mike said "there was only one perfect guy, and they..."

I call him "the Froshty Mugger" as I mostly recall him urging folks to watch the game with a "froshty mug of Bushhhh". It got pretty sloshy by the 4th or 5th inning.

I have yet to take the quiz.

6/20 I admit it. I mostly become a fan close to the playoffs :-)
