"I was very lucky," Foley said during a panel discussion at the 7th Annual Blackhawks Convention on Saturday. "This town has had a great history of incredible broadcasters. ... Harry Caray became a friend. He was a legend. I just revered that man and any time any of those guys would make a comment on the way I did things or how I did them, I was all ears."
