    “A nice man finished first , and his niceness was the capstone of his greatness.”

    This type of person sticks out like a sore thumb in our culture. I call them angels. Everyone should have one or two to turn to to see what the niceness we’re capable of. For many of us, it’s the exception not the rule.

    Through the entirety of my childhood, the Phillies had four mainstay announcers. Harry Kalas was the beloved broadcasting legend, and rightfully so. Richie Ashburn was the popular former player who became cherished even more during his time in the booth with his folksy and wry humor and friendship with Kalas. Chris Wheeler was okay, but was always a bit on the annoying side. And then there was Andy Musser. Musser was a bit bland and never the headliner in the booth. But he was always prepared, very professional, and was a very nice man. Beyond those who said his announcing was boring, I never heard a bad word said about the man.

    Andy Musser never received the accolades of a Harry Kalas or Bob Miller. He’d be an ill fit in today’s world of broadcasting media. But he is remembered for his niceness. We could use a lot more Andy Mussers in the media today, even in the world as a whole.

    Jean,

    It has certainly left me with something to ponder…and to mourn the lack of in myself and the culture.

    KevinH,

    Well said…in a sports world that relies on “hot takes'”Miller never had one.
    We indeed need more like him and Musser in every vocation…

    He was the “Mr. Rogers” of the hockey world and now his shoes will be really hard to fill as were Mr. Rogers “kicking around the house” slippers were.
