Dead Horse to John Sterling:
“Stop Beating Me!”

The only thing John Sterling loves more than…John Sterling, is a catch phrase he can beat to death. Yesterday, when the Yanks bullpen almost blew a lead in the ninth, Sterling found one.

As the Orioles threatened to tie the game, Sterling declared “This is life without Mariano.” OK. We get it. Mariano is on the shelf and it was a decent observation. But in Sterling’s world, anything worth saying once is worth repeating ad nauseam. And so a few seconds later, he repeats himself as though the thought just popped into his head, “This is life without Mariano.”

To make matters worse, as soon as Suzyn Waldman started her Star-of-the-Game interview, she jumped on the bandwagon with…you guessed it…”This is life without Mariano.”

Cut to commercial. Come back to the broadcast, and how does Sterling begin his post-game wrap up? You guessed. So “this is life without Mariano.” I would be willing to bet he repeated it at least two more times, but I had to turn the radio off because I just couldn’t take it anymore.

I am left to hope and wait for the day when I can once again enjoy a Yankee radio broadcast. The day when Yankee fans can rejoice. The day when we experience “life without Sterling.”


  1. Speaking of flagellating a deceased equine, I put it to you, blogiteer--what is your raison d'etre, if not repeating, ad nauseum, your diatribe against John Sterling? Physician, heal thyself!

  2. ahhh...but my reasons for my disgust change with each blog. He is a wellspring of inspiration.

    "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails
    with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people
    from that service? Bless you!
