No, not Larry Horse, Terry Boers!

I have met radio legend Terry Boers many times. Boers is a long-time fixture on the Chicago sports media scene, first in print and now at WSCR radio. Paired with Dan Bernstein in the afternoons, they do the very best they caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan to keep us (the long-suffering Chicago sports fans) informed, entertained and perhaps have a laugh or two along the way.
The first time I met Boers was at a charity bowling event sponsored by WSCR. Despite the rather chaotic nature of the event and the many people trying to get his time, Boers seemed very happy and relaxed as he chatted with fans and posed for pictures.
Unfortunately for the humor end, I cannot give myself a "Who you crappin'?", because everything in this post is true. I can question why Boers is holding a bowling pin (maybe that is why he is smiling). E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-E

Boers won't admit it on air, but he is a nice guy.

Blowhard and Boring? He might be a nice guy, but he knows everything about nothing, has a face meant for radio, and uses obnoxious vocal contortions that make me turn off the radio every now and then. Still, I listen for the White Sox talk. Don't appreciate Berstein alluding that he is a Sox fan when he isn't. Oh well.
