For sure. As great as Gil was with the Pats, his Celtics work with The Cooz was just as good if not better. Great pipes, great energy, always on top of things and fair.Channel 56 Celtics road games were a staple of my youth. I’ve been a Gil Santos fan for as long as I’ve liked sports.
No, not a false memory. Waiting with breathless anticipation for that stentorian voice to utter those magic words “...no school, all schools.”I hope this is not a false memory, but I feel like Gil Santos was one of the guys who read the school closing announcements on WBZ on snowy mornings when I was a kid -- he and Dave Maynard. So his voice was part of my life for as long as I can remember. RIP.
