The original headline proclaimed: “Holy Cow – He’s Eating Clams”

The original caption read: “Harry Caray (center), the radio and television voice of Chicago White Sox baseball, headed right for Forest Park after the last man was out Thursday and joined the diners at Giannoti’s. Caray, whose cry of “Holy Cow” greets every Sox home run, is seen here with host Vic Giannotti and (at left) Jim Janek, owner of the well-known Cafe Bohemia.”

The June 6, 1973 edition of the Forest Park Review carried a photo of White Sox announcer Harry Caray, who, after the May 31 White Sox 10-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers, stopped into Giannotti’s (7711 Roosevelt Road, present location of Dollar Tree), the esteemed Italian Restaurant run by Vic Giannotti. Caray announced for the White Sox during the 1971-1981 baseball seasons, where the famous seventh-inning stretch singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” originated. Caray was eventually hired crosstown by the Chicago Cubs, starting in the 1982 season and brought with him his signature “Holy Cow!” and his seventh-inning stretch serenade.
