Dino De Laurentiis, 1919-2010 | Dave Niehaus, 1935-2010

Without Blue Velvet, I’d have never fallen in love with film. Thanks, Dino, for that and a million others.

He brought us the grand salami, and broadcast the Mariners from their inception in 1977 to present day. I’m glad to have been around (and to have gotten Extra Innings) in time to spend a few years (and countless Felix starts) with one of baseball’s most unique voices.
