Prejudiced in favor of Anderson, in large part because he was my key drinking buddy when I was calling charts for DRF in Kentucky (except for the Derby) in the spring of '76. The professional press-box support crew at that time was was beyond-first rate, and that season was one of the great sustained in-game experiences. Every night, an event.
