    Sorry guys but Joe Buck has won my heart
    Everyone here "at the genius bar" looks like they are the girl with the dragon tattoo. Hi, I would like a macbook pro and a clavicle bolt

    Someone wrote that line for Joe Buck. The only reason why you don't hate it is because you didn't have to hear him speak.

    That is a face that is impossible to like. Even his mother hated him.

    Joe Buck is actually very intelligent and it wouldn't surprise me if he was a cool guy to talk to off camera. He comes off a lot better in interviews than he does as a sports caster.

    Of course he is intelligent. Look at the size of the dude's head. He's got to be rated a super genius on the phrenology scale.

    Didn't Joe Buck accept a dare from Conan O'Brien to sneak the phrase "jub jub" into a World Series broadcast one year?

    Because my generally favorable attitude toward him is entirely based on that.

    edit: all right, it wasn't a false memory after all.

    from the wikipedias:
    On an appearance prior to the 2007 World Series, Buck explained to O'Brien that sometimes his friends text message him during games and dare him to work words or phrases into the broadcast. O'Brien asked him to say "Jub-Jub" during a World Series broadcast, and if he did, he would donate $1,000 to a charity of Buck's choice. During the third inning of Game 1, Buck duly obliged: "Our own little Jub Jub, Chris Myers, playing the role of weather person..."

    Trust me, that doesn't mean anything

    I get the sense he's pretty smart too

    But he's absolutely whipped by his employers as well

    Yeah, I don't honestly hate Joe Buck, I just hate his broadcasts...and his face.

    I hate his sermonizing, I hate that he can't be a straight play-by-play guy, I hate how he can't ever quite stay neutral even though as a national broadcaster he really should and if I wanted bias I'd just listen to the hometown guy, I hate how he hammers the stupid talking points that his producers hand him even though I guess that's his job, and I too hate his stupid face.

    During one of the Thanksgiving games a few years ago, Joe Buck's daughters were brought into the booth so that he could introduce his family. He couldn't remember the name of his youngest. :P

    Please tell me you are joking. Because if this is true, its just sad.

    edit: I tried to look this up on the internet. Couldn't find anything.

    I like to confuse my dad about my age. I'll say I'm some age, obviously older than I am, and he'll say "No you're not" and then fumble around trying to remember my actual age

    The only national broadcaster I can think of that is worth a damn is Chris Collinsworth.

    My suspicion is that TV broadcasting is like driving and talking on the phone at the same time... where on one hand you have to make sure that you are filling the dead air with your voice, and on the other you have to make sure that you are actually saying things that make sense... oh AND you are listening to your director the whole time

    and you can't truly do both well at the same time

    NFL anyway, sure. The NBC hockey guys are pretty good.

    Edit: and I agree with Jasconius. There's a reason that a lot of the famous/beloved broadcasters are from baseball, it's the only sport where you can pace yourself enough to consistently make sense and have good conversation.

    I just remember him during the broncos-bears game sounding really exasperated during tebow time

    "How does this happen? How does this continue to happen?"

    Next, try to convince him you're aging faster than he is. Compute a date when you'll catch up to him and hand him pages of indecipherable math scribbles.

    I love one of the broadcasters on CBS I think it is. I can't remember who it is though. part of that love is how he was gushing about fitzpatrick last year though and how he says his name. I am bias!

    It could still cause him to not run so well, and thus his routs will be poorer. And the Giants will of course go after him.

    The advantage of at least having him on the field then, is it takes some pressure off Hernandez and Welker.

    But then again I doubt he can bring his army on the field without drawing a penalty so the chances of a poor rout are greatly reduced.

    Are we listing the worst NFL announcers ever?

    Because no list would be complete without Brian Baldinger.

    I maintain that Ron Jaworski can be good, but as a show guy not as a broadcast guy.

    Tony Siragusa is easily one of the worst sideline announcers in the game, and it's at the point where they let him speak up whenever he has a thought.

    There was a rumor that Tom Brady got the entire team Uggs for making the Super Bowl, but then somebody said it was just a card from the company congratulating the team (since Brady is a model or sponsored by Uggs or some such).

    Schefter is reporting that Ochocinco bought 70 Beats by Dre headphones for the team for the flight to Indy.
