Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper Grab Some Pine at Board of Supervisors Meeting

The duo -- the team's broadcasters for the past 20 years -- deserve a memento of their own. The two waited patiently for the better part of two hours at the Board of Supervisors' meeting to hear a resolution passed in their honor. But the supes instead went into extra innings on a debate about the epic Hunters Point Shipyard redevelopment project just an outfield toss from Kruk and Kuip's old ballyard.

Finally, the broadcasters received their due, only an hour and 15 minutes later than the scheduled 3:30 commendations. Supervisor Sean Elsbernd, flashing perhaps his first smile in board chambers in the year 2010, whipped out a baseball signed 25 years ago by Krukow to "Sean Elsbernd, future Giant."
"I am still waiting for the call," he told the broadcasters. After Kruk and Kuip left and the supes continued yet another long, contentious meeting, Elsbernd no doubt meant it.
