Hello Again, Everybody

Earlier this week we rewatched Hello Again, Everybody: The Harry Caray Story in honor of MLB’s Opening Day. It’s been years since I’ve seen this (I think it may have even been one of my early rentals from Netflix back when they were still shipping DVDs to you in the mail), but it’s every good as I remembered. It includes stories and commentary from Harry’s family, coworkers, players, and even Bob Costas and Mike Ditka.

I didn’t think much of it back then, growing up in Chicago while he was their announcer, but it’s honestly a goddamn miracle he was never got fired for the things he would say on the air. Worth a watch, even if you’re not a Cubs or a baseball fan. But especially if you’re a Cubs or a baseball fan.

Streaming it from legitimate sources looks difficult at this point, but you can still find it on YouTube or buy the DVD (not Blu-Ray!) from Amazon.

Hi there. My name is Tom Pacyk and this is my small home on the web. I love the intersection of design, technology, and communication, which is a combination that led me to a career in sales and marketing roles at places like Zoom and ServiceNow. They're a bit old now, but I also had the opportunity to publish a couple of books along the way.

Portland, Oregon is home for me, my wife Beth, and our three kids, but I'm actually a Midwestern transplant—I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and went to school at Purdue and Illinois. When I find some free time I'm probably going to concerts, rooting for the Portland Timbers, or working on my Sunshine Burn Photography project.
