I always have had a dislike for a lot of the national TV announcers. A lot of times they don't seem to be watching the same game I'm watching. Two of my least favorite are Joe Buck (because he's an egotistical moron) and Troy Aikman (because he's Troy Aikman). It was bad enough to have those two do the Eagles
game last night, but in the first half, they added Terry Bradshaw, who had absolutely no idea what he was doing, and he even admitted it several times. ("How does the teleprompter work?") And then this little gem:
Terry: Where is the cough button?
Troy: This one marked 'cough.'
That had to be one of the very worst annoucer jobs I've heard in my 40 years. Are all former-quarterback-turned-announcers that bad? I kinda think they are (Dan Fouts, anyone? Mr. "the team that scores the most points will win") Not to mention Theismann and the fore-mentioned Aikman.
In the future, if I ever see Bradshaw's name as an announcer, I will either not watch the game, or have the mute on the tv and read the closed-captioning the whole dang game. Anyone else feel this way?
