Don Orsillo has seen the Dave Matthews Band 19 times…and that just about explains everything.
How challenging was the 2012 season for you as a broadcaster, knowing that a lot of fans were probably losing interest in the team as the season wore on?
“It was different from what we are used to for sure. This was my first sub-.500 season in my 12 seasons of doing games. That said, our job really did not change much. We did the games as we saw them and the schedule was the same. No question, though, it is far easier calling wins than frustrating loses. While fans may not have been watching as much, there is no doubt there was enough drama on a daily basis to keep them interested.”
Type of movies: Action/thrillers, mob movies
Movie: “The Godfather”
Actor: Kevin Costner
TV show: “No Reservations” with Anthony Bourdain. Honorable mentions to all CSIs, “River Monsters” and “Dexter.”
Music: “Everything from classical, opera to rock. I have seen Dave Matthews 19 times now in concert. It’s Dave 95 percent of the time.”
Favorite person to meet: “There have been many over the past 12 years but the two innings we spent talking with Kevin Costner was by far tops for me.”
