I really like Mark Grace when he does color commentating on some of the Fox Saturday afternoon MLB broadcasts. On the other hand, Bert Blyleven blows.
I wish Grace would come back home to chicago and do cubs games. Chicago really screwed the pooch in their relationship to mark grace.

The Lebetard show now fills up about 3 hours every morning for me. Seriously improves my average morning at work.

When he was the side kick to tony bruno on fox radio, I kinda liked him.. that was a decent show. But solo he was garbage.

Ron Darling is good on the SNY Mets broadcasts with Gary Cohen. Caray is just awful he brings everyone down with him

I guess this is all unnecessary rambling because Hollywood personifies something I hate about most people. He can take valuable knowledge, stare it right in the fucking face and never let a single sentence absorb into his brain.

Berman: There are times I still don't hate Berman, but not many. I actually dread winter games in Green Bay because I HATE Berman doing his over used imitation of Bob Woodson/John Facenda saying: "The Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field" Literally makes me want to shoot my television.Bob Costas: This pretentious prick tries to over analyze every sport story he covers and misses the heart of the sports fan. He is the quintessential example of a guy who has likely never played a sport in his entire life but thinks a college education can make up for it.

I disagree about costas.. at least in the sense that he's not a fan.. he's a passionate, and almost old timey fan of base ball ( for example, he hates teh wild card). I think that he's just very intelligent, and isn't willing to dumb himself down, which I don't really mind. I don't think he adds much in the analyst table, but he's really just the MC of those shows. I used to love when he and Yuker did baseball games

I saw this yesterday. I like the post about when I say "fisted" be the 1st to call and win an I-phone. My friends and I would take shots when he would say fisted during the Tigers v Twins game. He'd say it at least once every 1.5 innings or so.

God Dilfer is the worst. How can they fire a source of pure comedy like Emmit and keep this corpse around.

They fired Emmitt? I wondered why I didn't see him anymore. What happened?

Well it probably was because he was the most incompetent commentator in the history of broadcasting. THat was his charm, but the guy could barely put a sentence together, and dropped malapropisms basically every time he spoke. That was his charm for me, but ESPN execs probably weren't down with the whole "laughing at the hall of famer" thing the rest of us were into. I also miss Michael Irvin, who is hilarious, and isn't afraid to call people out and to talk blatant shit to other announcers. I remember I think it was with Tom Jackson, they had a disagree ment about something, and he just blatantly said to TJ " OH yeah.. well how many rings you got, 'cause I got 3" or something on that order, and just bitched him down. It was hysterical

Irvin was great too. On monday nights, I usually listen to the 2nd half of MNF on the radio. It's commentated by Marv Albert and Boomer Esiasson. Boomer is another one of those guys that "tells it like it is". I didn't like him at first but he grew on me. He gets into it with Marv all the time and I like when he puts that panty wearer into his place.

The sports guy sent out this tweet ( and really, this is what I love twitter for.. comedian's one liners, and porn star debauchery.)

So, I sent matthew berry, espn fantasy sports " expert" a couple of snarky tweets last week@therealtmr how did a comedy (loose usage) writer ever become taken seriously as a sports analyst. what a joke@therealtmr Nice read on Braylon and the fin's back field. How about you stick to what you're good at and go write Tropic Thunder 2So today, I went to send him a real tweet, about if I should start mccoy or maclin ( which is a real stumper for me), and I noticed he was off my list.. confused, I went directly to his twitter page, and he had apparently blocked me. Apparently he's pretty sensitive about his b-movie writing career.
