Tim Tebow's noon ET press conference is the biggest event in the history of sport. Move over Roman gladiators, move over Greek Olympians, move over Babe Ruth, Michael Jordan, and Tiger Woods. The New York Jets have their new situational backup quarterback!!!!
Tim Tebow arrived in New York today. The press conference was carried live on ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNEWS. The press conference was carried on a multitude of websites. And, the press conference was carried on four local broadcast networks in New York. But clearly, the most unbelievable coverage of the Tim Tebow press conference was going to be on ESPN2's First Take. It was there you could watch this...
Let's break down what you can see on ESPN2...
1) Tim Tebow's press conference
2) Skip Bayless tweeting at his laptop
3) The Twitter feed of Skip Bayless BEING BROADCASTED LIVE ON TELEVISION!!!
4) The destruction of American civilization
Before today, I didn't think state controlled media was a good thing. I firmly believe not even the cruelest dictator would allow this though...
Gus was delight to hear on fx's college football, hope to hear more during the basketball season & fox should think about him replacing joe buck!
Ok, could someone explain to me why an announcer who takes over a game and makes it all about him and not about the game itself and yells and screams like a crazed maniac over routine plays is considered to be a great play-by-player?? Gus Johnson is THE WORST announcer I've ever heard. If you want to know what great football announcing is, listen to game calls by Ray Scott, Marty Glickman, Jack Whitaker, Jack Buck, Pat Summerall , Bob Fouts, Chuck Thompson, Bill Campbell etc. They efficiently called a game and let the game be the star.
Sorry, but I continue to think that this site (and others) overrate Johnson, an average at best (and truly annoying at worst) sportscaster. I ask again- why do so many think this guy is some sort sportscasting god? I just don't hear it.
@awfulannouncing have you been to foxsports facebook page? Hog fans are not Happy! #gusjohnsonsucks #WPS #firegusjohnson #firecharlesdavis
@JoeGavazzi have you seen fox sports facebook page. He did not end it on a good note. Pissed off every hog fan in the state #gusjohnson
@College_FB Gus Johnson needs to be the Brad Nessler of FOX. I enjoyed his work more than anyone else this bowl season.
I think FOX should use Gus Johnson on Baseball in 2012 because to me although he hasnt done it yet he could be on some good matchups and his homerun calls could be quite entertaining plus it would be a break from everybodys "favorite" Dick Stockton. As long as he has the right pairing for him it could work.
I don't mind Johnson calling college football, but the game times they had him on at were terrible. It should be better next year when he's on Fox Sports, and hey, we do get him with the Cotton Bowl instead of having Fox's #2 NFL team.
@awfulannouncing Missing from poll: "Gus Johnson sucks". Although better than Brenneman, he's WAY overrated by you and others.
@awfulannouncing Finding out Doris Burke is doing a game I want to watch is like finding fruit in your Christmas stocking. I want candy
