Luke Winn: Bummer of a summer: Brewers games won't be same without Ueck

Bob Uecker, the radio voice of the Milwaukee Brewers for 40 of their 41 years of existence, underwent successful heart surgery on Friday to repair his aortic valve and part of his aortic root. For his faithful audience on WTMJ, this will be a strangely empty stretch of baseball: As he recovers, the 75-year-old icon will be taking his longest hiatus ever from the airwaves, likely missing 10-12 weeks of games. I also presume he'll miss his induction into the Wisconsin Meat Industry Hall of Fame, which had been scheduled for May 13. Uecker is on the verge of an extraordinary trifecta this year. He'll be the first man ever to simultaneously belong to the Baseball Hall of Fame (as an broadcaster), the WWE Hall of Fame (for announcing early Wrestemanias) and his local meat industry's Hall of Fame.
