    And he's a good sport about it. Tim Dillard's impersonation is especially hilarious. (Videos at end of NY Post story.)

    More like Henry Hecht, wasn't it?

    Dillard may have a career in comedy waiting after baseball. That was fanfreakingtastic!

    Tim Dillard's impression was the funniest, but Elliot Johnson nailed it as far as accuracy.

    Tim Kurkjian is probably the nicest big-time on-air personality I've ever met. He's also one of the shortest men I've ever met.

    He's probably one of the better basketball playing journalists you'll ever meet, too. At least he used to be. And agreed, very nice guy.

    Was this like Dorf on Golf?

    Kurkjian is also an example of how good some of these writers can become on TV when they work at it.

    He was painful to watch on ESPN when he first got there, now he does a great job across the board.

    The one by J.P Arencibia is by far the best.

    How tall is Kurkjian? I would have guessed 5-4 or 5-5, but as a tall person, I frequently have a hard time gauging how tall short people are.

    He does a good Harry Caray, too.

    The other two were great on the voice and the obscure stats, but Johnson definitely beats them on the mannerisms. Those were hilarious.

    I died laughing watching Dillard. Too funny
