Tait the Great!

Perhaps McBone has been heavily tilted this past month towards the Cleveland Cavaliers' magical playoff run. Hell yes it has! Do I apologize for that? Hell no! Cleveland needs a title and there is no one I can think of who deserves it more than the great Joe Tait, this week's McBone Hero of the Week. While he may have the worst collection of sweaters in the western hemisphere, he just happens to be the greatest play-by-play man of all time. Yes sir, that's him you're hearing right now. That sweet sound is vintage Tait, and you can listen to more of his classic calls right here.

Joe Tait has been the Cavs' radio voice since the team's inception in 1970. Never once in 37 years has he had the opportunity to announce an NBA championship series. That changes Thursday night at 9 PM EST. So turn down the volume on your television, crank up the radio (AM 1100), and take the chance to listen to the man who brought you Wham with the right hand! 
Joe turned 70 this year, and what a birthday present it would be if the Cavaliers could deliver an NBA championship to Cleveland.
Here's to 37 more years, Joe, which of course would make you 107 when you retire. We love you!
