    I heard it at work on Wednesday after the fact and I got worse goosebumps than when it actually happened on TV. I freaking LOVE Gene & Jim.

    :(

    I really cannot imagine having to listen to Rockets broadcasts next year without Gene Peterson. I wish he'd stay a few more years. :(

    yeah no kidding. i am going to miss those guys a great deal. on the tv end of things, i sure wish they would have brought calvin back this year. it was always fun listening to him, especially when we were winning. we are going to do plenty of winning this year, but he's not here. i actually like matt bullard doing color commentary. clyde drexler is just not that good. if they wont bring calvin back, then at least let the bull do home games as well.

    we've been fortuante to have such great announcers

    Astros games sucked this year since Milo didnt do every game
    Rockets games will definately suck, unless craig ackerman takes over. i like him, but he cant compare to gene

    I'm going to miss them so much! When the Rockets won their second championship in '95, I tape recorded their broadcast off of the radio. Brings back great memories.

    I think they are one other reason why we should win a championship this year. As a goodbye gift.

    I love their voices... they need to continue...have a change of heart....

    If not, the Rockets need to get 2 people very similar...that Comets announcer doesn't strike the right chord...

    I also miss Alan Ashby--so much substance--for the Astros.. why are our radia announcers leaving?

    Mark and Andre are OK...Mark is much better calling games than he is on the talk show...I love Andre's interjections during Mark's calls (ala Jim) as well...

    I agree. It would be a perfect goodbye.

    Well, not sure... but they both have been with the Rockets for over 20 years and guess they felt it would be best to retire together.

    They have been broadcasting for the Rockets for 33 years! They are just at the retirement age. There is an article in the chronicle about it here:
