Now that we’re with NBC, we try not to take potshots at folks who work for other networks.
That said, is there anything regarding the sport of football that excites Joe Buck?
Buck is calling one of the most memorable postseason games in league history, and he’s acting for the most part like it’s inning five of a Saturday afternoon baseball game between the Blue Jays and the White Sox.
The Packers have completed a 21-point comeback, evening the score in Arizona at 38 all with enough time for each team to score another 14 each.
It has been an amazing game, and if whoever wins it has any energy left, they might keep putting up pinball scores unless and until an opponent is able to come up with more points.
And to prove our point regarding Buck, watch the rest of the game and then click this link when it’s over.
Look, Buck is smooth and he has a great TV voice and he’s funny at times and he doesn’t say stupid things. But he conveys little or no passion for football and we think FOX should hire to be its lead play-by-play man for the NFL someone who can convey via words the thrill that true fans of the sport feel when watching a truly great game.
PFT Planet, feel free to agree with me or to call me an idiot. As long as you have passion about it, I don’t mind.
