Tuesday: Berman vs Irvin
Round Two of the Joe Morgan Memorial Tournament is in the books. We had a massive number of people vote throughout the last week as we cut a field of 16 First Round winners down to the Elite Eight of Awful Announcing. If you still aren't aboard the Joe Morgan Memorial bandwagon, we are holding a month long tournament to place a current sports media personality on Awful Announcing's Mount Rushmore to replace not so current awful announcer Joe Morgan. You can get caught up on everything that's happened so far with the full First Round results here and the full Second Round results below...
1) Skip Bayless defeated John Sterling 64.14% - 35.86%
2) Joe Buck defeated Deion Sanders 55.21% - 44.79%
3) Colin Cowherd defeated Joe Theismann 61.71% - 38.29%
4) Chris Berman defeated Mark May 70.09% - 29.91%
5) Jim Gray defeated Thom Brennaman 77.89% - 22.11%
6) Craig James defeated Rick Reilly 66.32% - 33.68%
7) Stephen A. Smith defeated Tony Siragusa 63.91% - 36.09%
8) Michael Irvin defeated Pierre McGuire 69.1% - 30.9%
Our readers and voters have stayed with the spirit of the Joe Morgan Memorial and not limited themselves to the broadcast booth throughout the tournament. Eight men remain covering eight different areas of the sports media. The diverse field includes a play by play man (Buck), booth analyst (James), radio host (Cowherd), debater (Bayless), reporter (Gray), studio analyst (Irvin), studio host (Berman), and, well, whatever Stephen A. Smith does these days. The Elite Eight has again been drawn at random, but the rest of the tournament is now bracketed out as well now that we've reached the quarters. We start Tuesday with our first matchup below (Berman/Irvin) and will go right down the list through Friday with one quarterfinal taking place every day from Tuesday-Friday. The semifinals and final will then take place starting Monday the 25th. See you tomorrow for the beginning of the Elite Eight!
Wednesday: James vs Smtih
Thursday: Cowherd vs Bayless
Friday: Buck vs Gray
You're right; it was unnecessary. "Under God" should never have been added to the Pledge during the Red Scare in the first place.

Don't blame NBC for people being stupid. It's about time we grow up and move away from gross ignorance and superstition. Let people believe in fairy tales, Santa Clause, or God ... just leave me out of it.
Absolutely un-American of this fourth rate broadcasting group.
On Father's Day,, you deny The Father !
Golf highlights on Sportcenter(ESPN/ABC) will suffice.
Internet gets me my own weather channel,,, and as for information and news events,,no change there. The peacock reports what been reported and they throw in a bunch of uninvestigated ad-libbing and call it what it is.. A scoup,, ,,the poop-scoup.
No more Peacocks in my God-fearing, U.S.A. loving household.
Join my family, will you please?
No one has any trouble with deleting indivisible, certainly not Rick Perry, who wanted Texas to secede.
@twittablogga “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.” Sounds like NBC if you ask me?
America's founders believed in Christian principles and freedom when they wrote the constitution. NBC's deliberate omission of the words "under God" is UNPATRIOTIC!
@cgolf I really hope you're being sarcastic. "The Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion." These are words from the Treaty of Tripoli, ratified by the United States in 1797 and signed by George Washington himself. The founding fathers were deists at worst, and some of them may have even been atheists. The founding fathers you so revere were all freethinkers who were well aware of the evils and tyranny of religion, which allowed them to write what is still one of the only completely secular founding documents in the world.
