Finally, an explanation for all those weird excuses for Mike Shannon's absence from the Cardinals radio booth. Apparently, the legendary broadcaster really has been "on assignment" this summer. He's been learning to tweet!

This week Shannon will make his social-media debut when he uses the Redbird's Twitter handle @cardinals to call Wednesday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. According to the Cardinals, Shannon will comment on game action, share his personal anecdotes and tweet answers to fans with the hashtag #MikeShannon.

Lame! The Voice (TM) of the St. Louis Cardinals doesn't need to hashtag his name to identify himself. All he needs is one of the following trademark Shannonisms:
