Get Well, Old Hickory

The legendary baseball analyst Peter Gammons suffered a brain aneurysm this morning and underwent several hours of surgery tonight. Details are scarce, but we do know that Gammons is in intensive care and will be for several days.

I'm watching "SportsCenter" right now, and not only did the Gammons story not lead the telecast, but it wasn't mentioned until 10 minutes into it. But the producers did find the time to show the Bill Buckner clip, and also have a five-minute discussion of Roger Clemens' mechanics. Disgraceful. It's not like he's their colleague, or a legend, or anything like that.
