While you’re asking questions about “what went wrong” last year, here are some things you may want to read up on, since you clearly missed out on past events: The Atkins diet, “The Dark Knight,” Furby dolls and the Harry Potter series.
Nicknamed the “Throwin’ Swannanoan,” Stewart played a key role in the Orioles’ last World Series championship in 1983, pitching five scoreless innings in the series. In all, Stewart pitched 12 scoreless postseason innings between 1979 and 1983.
The right-hander finished his career with a season apiece in Boston and Cleveland. He retired after the 1987 season with a mark of 59-48 and a 3.59 ERA.
After his career, however, Stewart ran into trouble. According to the Baltimore Sun, he started using crack cocaine shortly after he retired, and ended up serving almost seven years in a North Carolina prison. But Stewart turned his life around after his release in early 2013.
In 2016, Stewart joined the Orioles broadcast to talk about his career.
If Witten is interested, he?would join former Cowboys quarterbacks Tony Romo (CBS) and Troy Aikman (Fox) behind the microphone on NFL game telecasts this season. The list of former Cowboys stars who’ve moved from America’s Team to the?booth is impressive, starting with “Dandy” Don Meredith on?”MNF” with Howard Cosell and Keith Jackson/Frank Gifford.
Executives from Fox are intrigued by the possibility the popular, square-jawed Witten could replicate the rookie TV success of Romo, his close friend and former road roommate. He’d?have the advantage, like Romo and Aikman, of broadcasting to a built-in,?national fan base that loves the Cowboys.?
But persuading?Witten, who’s coming off a Pro Bowl season,?won’t be easy. After the Cowboys’ regular-season finale,he told the Dallas Morning News he plans to play again in 2018 for what would be his 16th season.
