Did You Hear About the Tigers Alleged Announcer Fight?
I have worked with some announcers I don't get along with. The negative energy can be quite a driving force. Sometimes spite is the best motivator... For me anyway.
Tuesday night, after another Detroit Tigers loss to the Chicago White Sox in Chicago, announcers Mario Impemba and Rod Allen got into a "physical altercation" and it made national news. Click here to see the story.
The agent for Rod Allen's denial leads me to believe EVERYTHING happened just like it was reported.. The team was NOT announcing last night in another Tigers victory. It's like they don't want a high draft pick.
It was an alleged argument over a chair that lead to the physical stuff. It's alleged Rod Allen put Mario in a choke hold from behind. HIs agent denies it.
The 2 have been working together since 2003 and this weekend Detroit is scheduled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1968 World Series champions during the series with St. Louis. I am sure the Tigers would like to have their A team working it. Kirk Gibson and Matt Sheppard have filled in the last 2 games.
