So much fun to work with in the newsroom at Mcbride. A real pro, and a funny guy too. I've told this story too many times but.....when I started at NW, they had a softball team that used
to play over at Hume Park. I was pretty new at the station, but went out to play ball with the group, I get to the game a little late, Mckit's playing first base. He boots a ball or misses a throw or something,
(not that it was the World Series or anything), but he comes off the field and he is steamin' hot, like only Mckit could get, cursing his glove, himself, you know the drill. Says to me, Lee "can you go in for me"?
I said sure John, what, for an inning or 2? He replied; "No, forever! I don't think he played much anymore after that. I might have paraphrased the quote a little, but still pure Mckit. Where are the characters and professional personalities like that these days? Maybe that's why Frosty says:" you can't miss what doesn't exist anymore."
