    Default Sports announcers

    All right, after much ballyhoo, John Madden is officially retired. He was, in my opinion, one of the best at the height of his popularity.

    In his wake, Chris Collinsworth has been anointed as Madden's successor. We'll see how he does.

    Who, in your opinion, is the best sports announcer and the worst sports announcer? It can be any sport, but make sure it's someone who is nationally-known.

    The best for me has to be Gary Thorne. He's excellent no matter what he does, although he specializes in hockey and baseball. I also like Verne Lundquist, but he's probably not going to be around much longer.

    **** Stockton, also someone who won't be around much longer, is horrible. He can't get anything right and seems to be infatuated with the sound of his voice more than anything. Although I like this other guy otherwise, Mike Tirico should stick to golf. Next time he does the play-by-play for a Sunday night NFL game, listen to his touchdown calls. You'd think he was announcing the Second Coming each and every time someone scored a touchdown.

    I like Gary Thorne...I always enjoy Mike 'Doc' Emerick....


    I hate to say...I can't stand Deb Kauffman of MSG...I know she got married but can't remember her name...she gets on my nerves sooooo much
    I always loved when Robin Roberts was commentator of a sports event...she was one of my favorites....
    sorry, John Madden got on my nerves....I also can't stand Joe Morgan...someone shut him up please....

    I loved Robin Roberts, but I don't remember her doing much game announcing. I thought she did anchor duties pretty much. But I liked her a lot. She's infinitely better than Pam Stone. Ugh...

    Yeah, Joe Morgan's another one who's full of himself.

    Are you kidding?...If you'd said his insufferable brother Bryant, I'd agree with you. But Greg is about as knowledgeable and humble as they come.

    I don't know as I never got it. But Bryant did the Today show and has a show on HBO; Greg anchors the NCAA tournament and the CBS NFL broadcast.
