Anyone else catch the BCS title game on FOX! this evening?
Our good buddy Thom Brennaman called the game for Fox and it was just painful. In the second quarter, he and his partner Charles Davis screwed up and thought Oklahoma was going for it on fourth down at the goal line when it was only third down.
But the worst part was the over-the-top disgusting verbal fellating of Tim Tebow by one Mr. Brennaman. This was at Peter King-Brett Favre level of Man-Love. Late the game, Jesus, uh, I mean Tebow, was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for taunting. The Horror! Brennaman's response: "That must have been the first time Tebow has done anything wrong in his life!' I shit you not. That is what our Thom said.
Anyway, Thom is getting absolutely shredded on the blogosphere right now, and deservedly so. I'll be so happy when Fox doesn't have the BCS games anymore...although we might miss the BAND SHOTS!
I'm also really thinking that the Reds have some of the most awful announcers in baseball. The only one I can tolerate anymore is Chris Welsh. SMarty, Cowboy, Thom, and Grande....ugh.
