Joe Buck is a fine sportscaster in the current mold of seemingly interchangeable people that look good on TV, can handle at least baseball and football adequately, and have a fairly bland on-air persona.
In baseball, he's saddled with the oft-times annoying Tim McCarver, at least on his national FOX telecasts. He seems to have a better chemistry with Troy Aikman.
Did you hear what he said about Phillies guy Harry Kalas tonight? Harry and his son, Todd - who is a Tampa Bay announcer - presented the starting lineups.
He said that if he had Harry's voice, he'd just stay at home all day and talk to himself!:lol: Point taken, though.
It's interesting that the announcing gene has been passed from father to son in a number of instances. It was Joe's Dad who had the classic call of Gibson's homer "I don't believe what I just saw".
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
