For all of you football fans, I came across Dr. Z's ranking of the football announcers. It's a surprising list. While Michaels and Madden ranked pretty highly, the top teams for CBS (Nantz and Simms) and Fox (Joe Buck and Aikman) scored poorly. Personally, I like the top guys, although now that I think about it, I might be biased by the following: 1) They are always calling the most competitive match-ups; 2) I've heard them so often, that I'm probably subconsciously soothed by their voices.
Anyway, here are the rankings. Feel free to throw in your 2 cents in the comments section.
BTW, this reminded me of one of the best young talents on TV, Frank Caliendo. He is a master impressionist and had a short-lived show on TBS this past fall.
Check out some of these clips. He does Madden, GW Bush, and Robin Williams absolutely dead on.
