The Joplin Globe, Joplin, MO - Mike Pound: Mike Shannon has a rougher job than column writing


The Joplin Globe, Joplin, MO - Mike Pound: Mike Shannon has a rougher job than column writing: "We all have days when we don’t look forward to going to work.

Days when the thought of what awaits you at your job fills you with dread, with fear, with nausea. I’m sure Mike Shannon, who as the longtime St. Louis Cardinals radio broadcaster probably has the best job in the world, has days when he has to drag himself to work: “Shoot. I have to drive over to Bush Stadium, sit in the radio booth, drink beer and watch baseball again. I wish I wrote a newspaper column.”"

... The columnist wrote a whole column (if that's what it was), about nothing. Weird the way he dissed Shannon. Maybe he's a friend or something and is pranking him a good one. If not, maybe one day Shannon will bust him a good one in the chops. It makes you wonder what the heck the connection is, but there's not a whole lot of articles about Mike Shannon, so this gets the nod.

Anyhow, if you check out the article, you might wonder just who the drinker really is.
