Not "the dagger", but at least a jab

by Bert

Wayne Larrivee is best known on the radio airwaves around here as the play-by-play guy for the Packers broadcasts. During the games he is excitable, and he uses his signature phrase -- "there is the dagger" -- when (or if) the Packers make the winning play near a game's end.

On another of his many jobs, doing sports news in the morning for WTMJ, he displays a looser and funnier personality than during the game broadcasts. What was funny this morning on WTMJ is he took a jab at the station's political orthodoxy.

Mentioning the evening's radio schedule that included both President Bush's State of the Union address and the Democratic response, Larrivee added that it was surprising WTMJ was willing to air the Democratic response, given what usually what goes on around there.
