5 years ago today, we lost our voice

It was 5 years ago today that we lost Bob Murphy, forever the Voice of the New York Mets.

I invite you to listen to his voice from a couple of posts from earlier this year.

First is a few minutes of play-by-play and banter during Spring Training with Gary Cohen.

Second is something that I put up just before Opening Day and is available on the right side of (every page in) this site. Just Bob Murphy talking about Shea.

Greg Prince over at Faith and Fear in Flushing wrote a good piece on him today, and Centerfield Maz also remembers him.
