Last night, WCBS Yankees announcer Suzyn Waldman was doing the postgame show and what she did has become fodder on blogs and sports radio stations across the country. And it’s unbeknownst to me why WCBS put this on its website as a podcast. But it’s great for you the reader. You can listen to Suzyn as she literally breaks down in the locker room as she describes the Yankees coaches crying at Joe Torre’s statements in the postgame press conference. Yankees coaches crying?

Awful Announcing has its take on the whole thing.
