Their schtick about Wimpy being cheap has been going on for decades- still cracks me up. When Hawk & Wimpy are paired up- I like having the game on in the background just listening to the two of the them regardless of the score- when it's Hawk/Stone- I'm recording and fast forwarding through chunks of the game-
Hawk & Wimpy make ths Sox more fun and more likeable- and more like a family.
Hawk & Stone- not so much.
Hawk makes the same joke about Stone.
I get nostalgic about Hawk/Wimpy too, and it's nice to hear for a series or two, but if I had to hear them commentate every game...I'd probably go insane
plus St. Louis and Milwaukee
plus NYC parks and Minnesota
plus PNC Park in Pittsburgh
