I find most TV sports announcers to be annoying. Why must they use every second between plays to share their opinions about why a particular play was called or why a particular pitch was thrown? If they must tell a story that somehow relates to unfolding events, perhaps the pace of the story could be slowed and the tale be stretched out over several plays. I find little value in their talking for the sake of talking. Why is Phil Simms constantly yelling? Why does Troy Aikman use 'defense' as a verb? Why is Tim McCarver still talking?
