Wow! I never thought I'd see the word superb and Chris Collinsworth in the same sentence. I think he's the worst football announcer alive, besides maybe Dan Dierdorf who makes me constantly yell at the T.V. I'll agree that Costas does suck at anything but baseball coverage. His ego is Godzilla sized. Collinsworth does suck though.....sucks bad.

Chris Collinsworth (although he is a Gator) sucks and needs to go back to doing E36 M3ty Fox TV shows. Tony Kornhieser........he is the worst. He never even talks about what is going on in the game. First Monday night pre-season game all he did was talk about how nice the ref's bicepts were. This week all he did was talk about Green Bay without Bret Farve, the jerseys people were wearing in the stands and my one of my good friends from high school who is on the Bengals contract (Keith Rivers).

When I watch a Tampa Bay Bucs game on TV I mute the sound and turn the radio announcers on as they are always more exciting to listen to than the network asshats.

Naa.. That Manlady sucks more.. They just had the both of them chuckling at each other etc on the screen. Ohh boy... It was like the king of suck fests.

Their discussion went something like this...

Manlady: so I brought you something from my chicken cooking spot that is meant to warm the hearts of the average americans Costas: Ohh boy is this chicken on a stick.... (takes a bite) Manlady: nope goat penis but how about them olympics... Costas: (smiling and chuckling) Ohh boy you really should check out the Traffic in Bejing. They drive so crazy here it makes a NY cabby look like their in mayberry.. Manlady: (just chuckles along)

You have to give the one knowledgeable specialist his dues though, Teddy Atlas rocks at Boxing commentary.

As for Costas, mute is a wonderful invention

I wonder if you could just hit the "Spanish" translator on the TV, you would still hear the background noise but no Bob.

Maybe a new button, instead of SAP you could get a SUB button (Shut Up Bob!)

Was it Bob Costas that did the play by play on an F1 race a few years back? If it wasn't him, it was definitely a football or baseball guy. He kept saying the "racing automobiles" and mispronounced everyone's name. He was gone the next week if I remember correctly.

Dearest Marjorie, and the rest of my detractors...

It is my greatest regret that I am not able to bring joy to all those people who would let me into their home, whether by choice or by chance, like a songbird coming in through the open window of sport to light upon the hopes of nations, dreamed by a million sleeping children.

My fondest wish is that you may see your way clear to finding my reportagé something more than a source of annoyance and allow it to become your journey to a new dawn of competitive enlightenment, as the dawn greets a rebellious harlequin with the stiff breeze of truth and joy, breathed by the soft breath of a loving God, and a million sleeping children.

Also, after my shift, I'm going to take Manlady out, get her drunk, and try to nail her. Wish me luck!

Best, Bob

Dear Bob,

I wish you luck with Manlady. Even if it doesn't work out, maybe you can share some of her "Just for Men" and take off those annoying gray spots on your temples that your present colorist (who I'm guessing is your mom?) chooses to leave amid the sea of unnatural brownness.

Dear Bob,

We have a saying in my country - the coyote of the desert likes to eat the heart of the young and the blood drips down to his children for breakfast, lunch and dinner and only the ribs will be broken.
