From Chapman's Sailors Lexicon; FOG: a mist at sea, consisting of the grosser vapours floating in the air near the surface of the sea.
This definition is preceded by FOENUS NAUTICUM: nauticul usury, bottomry.
Other than that, I'm really happy for Dave Niehaus. Hopefully the man gets to call a few more post season games before he hangs up his spurs. When I think of the Mariners, Mr. Niehaus is the first person that comes to mind. He's been here since the beginning, and many of my favorite Mariner's memories have been described to me from the ether in the unique and measured cadence of his voice.
He's always been a gentleman, respectful of the game and the players, yet has often voiced the frustration of the fans with the strained plea, "Can't anyone throw a strike?!", or the despair often heard in "...and the runner is left stranded at third with another 6-4-3 inning ending double play." May Dave Neihaus always be the Voice of the Mariners, I can't imagine the team without him.
