    I used to make fun of the way he said Chipper Jones by pinching my nose. In good fun of course. He will be missed.

    I agree. That was one good thing about being a Braves fan for so long was being able to tune into TBS and hearing/watching Skip, Pete, Don and Joe call the games. He was a true legend and will be sorely missed.

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner. RIP Skip. I grew up with him and Pete watching the Braves with my Dad/Grandfather.. he's one of the BEST.

    His personality- the fact he had one at all was what made him great. the new batch of broadcasters don't/won't ever do what he did best and that is why i will miss him.
    imho, he didn't have a job with the Braves/TBS; he was simply let loose in a booth to watch games and we heard what fun he was having. that's the kinda job we all want.
    c-ya Skip and peace.

    I thought Skip was awesome and I'm very sad that I won't be able to hear him any longer.
