John Sterling vs Skip Bayless
Fact File: New York Yankees play by play man
Why He's Here: Sterling is one of those rare announcers that has become a caricature of himself. His Bermanesque homerun calls can be painful even for the most ardent of Yankee fans. They wouldn't be so bad if Sterling didn't routinely botch even the simplest of commentary. His trademark "Yankees win, THHHEEEE YANKEEEEES WIIIINNN" call is the anthem of the seventh circle of hell for baseball fans outside New York.
Fact File: "Star" of ESPN's First Take and 1st & 10
Why He's Here: The former antagonizing columnist transformed into an antagonizing TV personality with his transition to first Cold Pizza and then First Take on ESPN2. Bayless traditionally squares off against a debate partner in segments that contain enough hot air to lift the Hindenburg. Often, Bayless will say outlandish things just for the sake of saying outlandish things. Thankfully, most people have stopped listening.
