Gaslamp Ball Book Club: Dick Enberg will stop at nothing!

via cdn1.sbnation.com

Okay by now you should have read Chapters 3 and 4 of Dick Enberg: Oh My! 

Chapter 3 was a short chapter highlighting his days as a boxing announcer at KTLA.  It's a little bit strange how detailed Enberg was in his early personal life but he glosses over his personal life during this time period.  He mentions in this chapter that he is now in between marriages and doesn't discuss it any further, except to mention that he asked Candice Bergen out on a date and at first she agreed but later canceled on him.  Bergen could never get his last name right even though her last name was the same as his except with the syllables reversed, Berg-en vs. En-berg. 

In Chapter 4 Enberg becomes the #2 man in the booth for the Los Angeles Rams.  Only a couple weeks into his tenure with the Rams, the long time #1 announcer dies of a serious heart attack at the age of 49.  Enberg takes over the #1 announcer thus pushing his career forward.

Discussion Questions:

A relatively young announcer at the age of 49 years of age suddenly dies. Who stands to gain the most?  The new #2 announcer with an unrelenting drive to get ahead in his profession?  Discuss.

Isn't it weird that Candice Bergen used to be thought of as hot? Discuss.
