The Masters is in full swing this weekend, marking yet another event that Jim Nantz will ruin. Hate to go to the old standby, but wouldn’t Gus Johnson make a better candidate to call the action?
Tiger. Backswing. Fire. Check.
Why must so many of our sports by ruined by broadcasting nepotism or clear nincompoopery of announcers? But do you want to one sport that hasn’t been ruined by its announcers? Hockey.
Well only because its never on television.
The Stanley Cup playoffs are actually underway, which is a shame because nobody is getting a chance to see it. People like me can’t watch Craig Johnson, Pavel Rosa and Jamie Storr lead the Kings to the Stanley Cup title this year! Even in Orange County – home of the reigning Stanley Cup champions – you can’t find a Ducks game anywhere.
Now a lot of you don’t follow hockey, and that’s cool. But how many of you religiously follow college basketball, too? That doesn’t stop you from watching March Madness. Hockey playoffs are great because they actually play every other night (might want to try that NBA) and as one wise man put it, seeds No. 5 – 8 actually have a legitimate chance to win. Unlike some of your lower seeds in college hoops.
So if the geniuses would actually put the games on television, a lot of people might be inclined to watch it. Hell, if for nothing else, than to see gals like Elisha Cuthbert in high definition.
