You are such a great broadcaster. I have followed your work on NBC. Keep up the good work on this. catering companies
I think you are one of the class acts in sports announcing. Whatever it is you are doing it's always a pleasure to hear your voice. I have one bone to pick. Chris Berman, 'a buffoon and clown'? Why such animosity? There's room for fun and humor in sports reporting. Look at Gary Radnich. It's not necessary to worship at the alter of sports and the athletes to be an effective sportscaster. Gary proved that. It's just entertainment and Berman has brought his own angle regardless if it fits within some unwritten standard, or not. 'He, could, go, all, the, way' is going to stick with every football fan forever. The phrase brings an immediate trip down some kind of football memory lane, for all NFL fans. He may not ever win any award for announcing, but, his presence should be appreciated, none the less. Happy Holidays and keep up the great work.
I'm a big fan from days past with the Giants. I think that San Francisco has been blessed with some of the best announcers for a number of years now, and I have memories of driving home from San Francisco as a kid and hearing Hank Greenwald and yourself call the night games. I also heard an interview with you asking about how hard it is to do other sports (you talked about diving I think) during the Olympics and have grown to respect your expansive repertoire. I think I speak for most Bay Area sports fans when I say that we are sad to see Joe Starky leave the 49ers, but are just as excited to have a hometown favorite returning to run the show. Welcome back.
Great interview with you and Max. Just a long time fan of the tennis coverage in the summer. It's the greatest thing to complement baseball and the 4th. Just wanted to give a shout. Have a great holiday.
