I got a small, not very menaingful story to tell about Chuck. I was at the Blue Jays game yesterday with my work and as I was standing outside the Dome before the game and who did I see chatting with some random fans? Chuck Swirsky.

So to start the Chuck talk, I would say something I always appreciated about Chuck is the time he spent talking to fans. He was never too good or too privileged to chat with the average fan. He always lived and breathed for the Toronto Community. Seeing him with a smile on his face chatting with people outside a Blue Jays game just shows his commitment to this city, even though he knows he will be moving so soon.

Good story, I could not agree more with you in what you are saying. I dont know how many time I sent him an emai and he responded back in under an hour, he would have over 300 messages in a day. For him to get back to almost every fan is an achievement in himself. I also remember playing in the raptors cup for Brock University a few years ago and at a lunch in, Chuck gave this great speech about passion for the game and what it meant to him. He then took the time to have a conversation with me about not just basketball but life in general. He is a standup guy for sure. Also like how he is always willing to listein to someone opinion on sports, even if they are not the brighest guy. Stand up guy. Chuck will be missed.

Really in the end, I have decided it won't be my last listen. I will catch some bulls games on TV and I believe Chuck is getting his own radio show over there so I am planning on trying to listen to that online. Long Live Chuck!

I would do that as well but he is only doing bulls radio. He wont be on the tv network calling games. That was the big paycut he took to go back home, go back to radio instead of tv. But I will try and stream online for a listein if possible next season..

Well the 2-4 show with jack and doug will be hockey-basketball related, thats what Chuck said. The 1-2 show will be with Faraway (not sure if it is his name, does the updates) its a sports show, magazine, headlines etc..

Chuck you will be missed!!!!!!

Yeah I found it weird as well, only a few guys have an hour show. Eric Smith has the rap but thats not on every day. Personally I would of loved to have Eric Smith and maybe Jack Armstrong as the hosts of chucks show. Eric Smith is a very underated broadcaster, I really like him a lot and respect his opinion.


The call in portions will be for the "Game Plan" show with doug and jack. Yes thats right they called it the "Game Plan"..haha

cheers

That would be awesome, would love to see it for sure, how would he call it, would be tough for him I bet, though I dont see Chicago making the playoffs.

Chuck said yesterday that if we tried hard we could hear his station over here. I think the channel was 1000.
