Sportscasters. The unsung hero in sports. Marv Albert, Dick Vitale, Lee Corso. What do these guys have in common? Aside from being ancient white guys who all probably bite hookers on the ass, they all love the game they represent and have a near encyclopedic knowledge of the game, and for the most part retained their true selves.
Most Irreplaceable Sportscasters
College Game Day Crew: Chris Fowler, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, and Desmond Howard
Although Rece “How did I get this job” Davis is replacing Chris Fowler for some unknown reason. Hardly anyone can beat this chemistry and professionalism. They genuinely look like they enjoy each other’s company, too.
Inside the NBA Crew: Charles Barkley, Ernie Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal and Kenny Smith
This group of sportscasters genuinely hilarious. Some of them are more knowledgeable than others, but they all pretty much know what they’re talking about. The biggest drawback to them is that many times they are more entertaining than the game they’re covering.
Take a moment of silence please. Who hasn’t copied this man!? Stuart Scott is “Like gravy on a biscuit, it’s all good!” Truly irreplaceable and groundbreaking when it came to sportscasters and sportscasting as a profession.
“Boom, boom, foom, poom! He just ran right at ’em!” The man has a damn video game named after him! Many people only think of him as one of the ancient sportscasters who used to hold Fox Sports down in the late 20th, completely neglecting to mention his superior coaching career.
Al Michaels and Cris Collingsworth
These two are a solid pair of sportscasters. Cris Collingsworth does better in the booth than he did on the field.
Sincerity and honesty. Don’t mind the pink eye, though.
“Bang!” He makes even the most mudane NBA games exciting!
WWF/WWE greatness. JR is perfection. If you do not know who he is you’re a moron. Jim Ross is a man’s man and a sportscasters sportscaster.
Any Spanish Soccer Announcer
I do not speak Spanish, so I do not know what they are saying. But it is always intense. They make you forget that soccer is not college football, and does not rate that level of enthusiasm.
“He’s a diaper dandy, baby!” The only type of people with his type of energy are the athletes themselves. The originator. Dickie V is the model of what sportscasters should be. It’s all about basketball with him, the way it should be.
He is the purest of all the announcers. He has a net worth of 400 million dollars after coining the phrase, “”Let’s get ready to rumble!”
