Computer glitch knocked Orioles-Yankees game off WTMM

Computers, for the most part, make life easier. But sometimes, a computer can turn evil.

That was the case Wednesday night at the studios of WTMM-FM (104.5). According to station program director Brian Sinkoff, a computer glitch knocked the Orioles-Yankees game off the air around 9 p.m., replacing it with ESPN Radio programming. It took about a half-hour before the game was restored.

Maybe the computer likes listening to ESPN Radio better than Yankees announcers John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

I actually enjoy listening to fingernails on a blackboard better than Sterling and Waldman.

I used to get annoyed with Sterling ... but I kind of like him now ... when he and Chas. Steiner were doing the radio games, they were a great listen! Sterling knows the game, and the team, and calls a brisk, breezy, old-fashioned kind of game. Corny expressions, yeah, but he is not drab and colorless like so many of these radio blabbers doing the games. I like it when he points out when the Yankees are playing particularly lousy ....
