Milo Hamilton...

...joined the Cubs broadcast booth this week in 1980.

Milo, of course, is most famous for his call of Hank Aaron's 715th home run.

He also voiced this terrible Burger King commercial in the 80s while he was with the Astros.

As for his experience with the Cubs? Let's just say that he doesn't consider it one of his career highlights.

In his autobiography he rips Harry Caray, calling him a "miserable human being." I wrote about that book when it came out, and you may be surprised by my analysis.
