Mike...I am saddened and disappointed you left out two very seminal moments in cinema. My appearance as Frank the sportscaster in the ABC made for TV movie in 77 called "Murder at the World Series". I even remember my line. "There he is..Bill..Bill Virdon...who will you pitch on Friday?"
Then there's the blockbuster 1989 theatrical juggernaut "Night Game" with Roy Scheider, where I was the Astros play by play announcer, who's miscall of the winning pitcher got someone killed in Galveston.
Don't worry Bob, we have it chronicled now. In fact I am proud to share this review of Allen's from Night Game that is featured on Wikipedia:
Critics hailed the cameo performance of real-life KTRK-TV sportscaster Bob Allen as the team's radio announcer.
