Default Chuck's Back Yet Again

This time in the Jays columnist Richard Griffin's mailbag.

I bet Doug Smith feels like an ass because he loved to make jabs at Chuck all the time.

For those who read Richard and Doug on a daily basis you are totally informed of what' going on in an accurate and insightful manner. Here's hoping for a Cubs-Sox World Series!

Sincerely, Chuck Swirsky

A: Thanks Chuck. Nice words. In return as Mr. Swirsky leaves for his new career as the Bullsí play-by-play man in Chicago, he should know that he clearly had his own tremendous impact on the Toronto and Canadian sports scene. I have three children that are all big Raptors fans (one other who only loves the Yankees) and for whom Chuck was the face of the franchise. They were always so impressed that whenever they sent Chuck an e-mail question or comment on the Rapsí website, he would answer every one. He didnít have to. It wasn't in the job description but thatís how a franchise builds its fan base. Thatís how a broadcaster relates to the community. Toronto will miss Swirsky. Salami and cheese will never taste the same.
