The corpse of Joe Buck announced yesterday's Red Sox/Yankees tilt at Fenway Park. As disinterested as Joe Buck usually sounds, apparently the game on Saturday took Joe to another level of dry, monotone, "I'd rather be on vacation in Tripoli right now" announcing that we've grown accustomed to hearing. First, a shoutout to our pal
of SI's Hot Clicks for this video of Joe's riveting home run call...
Wow. That was special. In case you need more proof of Buck seemingly being in a coma as Traina suggested, here's another home run call
from yesterday's game. It seems like we should give Joe a bit of a break this time though as SI's Richard Deitsch Tweeted
that Buck had a virus. Nevertheless, Twitter blew up and Joe Buck was a trending topic for his morbid commentary. I want to feel sorry for him in this case, but Joe Buck has earned his reputation of emotionless commentary. If he appeared to cared at all when announcing games the rest of the time, perhaps fans would be more understanding (Marv Albert had a virus during the NCAA Tournament and fans didn't destroy him if I recall). Instead, Fox's play by play man traditionally sounds like he'd rather be cleaning manure out of a barn than announcing a baseball game. As always, these are Real Tweets from Real People... Joe Buck
does the MLB On FOX broadcast with a loaded revolver on the desk, and just stares at it during commercials.
Honestly, I'm watching yesterday's Yankees Red Sox game, knowing the outcome, just to hear Joe Buck
not give a sh*t.
I officially switched from Chicago trends to New York trends. Fortunately the hatred of Joe Buck
apparently transcends geography.
But seriously I do want to send my condolences to Joe Buck
, who apparently passed away before today's broadcast. Joe Buck
should commentate funerals. Fox needs to fire this emotionless prick.
#liespeopletell "I love listening to Joe Buck
when he calls an MLB/NFL game!" Joe Buck
sounds like the old man from pawn stars... Joe Buck
doesn't act like he's "been there before," he acts like he's been there too many time and is bored to tears by it.
One of the few things that Yankees and Red Sox fans can agree on is that Joe Buck
is an awful announcer
If it's between watching Angel Cabrera win the Masters and watching Joe Buck
call a game, I'll take watching a puppy being runover by an SUV Joe Buck
makes Jim Nantz sound like Gus Johnson.
Just now learning that Joe Buck
is awful? Where have you been the last decade? Would rather listen to one of Craig Sager's suits call a game Joe Buck
, "Yankees win, i'm going home now to hang myself, oh well" #joebucksucks
I didn't think it was possible, but Joe Buck
sounded even more disinterested in the broadcast than he usually does. #redsox
Virus only a symptom, not the root. RT @: Fox Sports: Joe Buck
has a virus. That's why his voice sounds a little off today.
: Joe Buck
just flat-lined during a home run call. I think it's time for an intervention.
@ Joe just seems bored to me....perhaps having a mid-life crisis a bit early at 42.
@ Question is why does FOX keep him as #1 guy if TWO sports? Seems pretty universally reviled Joe buck
is making me more depressed than the are.
How bad is Joe Buck
? Hes so bad, I willingly turned on John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman's broadcast to avoid falling into deep depression.
Fox should hire Artie Langue for MLB broadcasts and bring him out like smelling salts at specific moments to wake up Joe Buck
One nice thing about being a fan of a small-market team is that you won't have to hear Joe Buck
butcher your games. #sucks
: Can we get IBMs Watson people to build a A/I version of Vin Scully to replace Joe Buck
