Thanks for the memories, Gino
Gino Cappelletti is finally calling it quits
as the radio color-man for Pats radio broadcasts. His soft, smooth and calm voice was the complete opposite of many of today's side-kick broadcast announcers. But it worked because he knew what he was talking about and he wasn't afraid to point out when the Pats were stinking the house out. I'll long associate his and Gil's voices with the Pats, sort of the way I can still hear Johnny Most calling Celts games. They were fun and fond days. ... Btw: Gino was the target of some rather vicious attacks a short while back for obviously getting some names and facts wrong as he grew older. The criticism could have been delivered more gently and diplomatically. Of course, it wasn't. In my view, Gino showed he had more class simply by plowing ahead as best as he could amid all the troll nastiness.
