DEAD IN DETROIT
Jay Allen was the announcer for the Detroit Tigers. Apparently. He only became their PA announcer in 2019, but held it as a lifetime position. He was a unique hit for Sir Creep’s Made in Detroit theme team, with a positive result soon after Jack Van Impe’s complete lack of any obituary whatsoever. The cheeky imp…e. The team owner runs on the philosophy that (paraphrased) “only the dead can obit” so it is nice to see their riskier strategy provide a success.
Also, Reptile’s Love Boat took the lead for 4 days with the death of GAA coach Sonia Kinsella. She was highly respected in her field.
