i often knock Joe Buck for being a terrible sports announcer.
He is. Perhaps the worst of all time.
In listening to commentators for the major league playoffs, i have realized they all are pretty close to awful.
Tonight, as the Atlanta Braves were within a pitch of closing out a 9-2 win against the buy-any-thing-we want-so-our-“fans”-can-show-up-late-expecting-us-to-win-and-leave-in-the-seventh-or-eighth-inning-or-earlier-if-we-are-behind-Dodgers, either Jeff Francoeur or Ron Darling, the former players turned color commentators said, “If the Dodgers had scored two runs earlier, this would have been a different ball game.”
And we are listening to this?
