Announcement and Musical Links

Friday, January 26, 2007

For a good while now I've been saying that everyone who links and/or asks for a link will get one. Well that process has slowly deteriorated over the past few months. Talk to that hussy of a USC Song Girl Megan if you're looking to place blame. There have just been so many links over the past few months that it's just impossible.

No I'm not bragging.....I think it's rad that people come here everyday, and I'd never take myself that seriously. So here's what I'm proposing......just email me. I don't care what your site is....just email me and you'll eventually have a link. And if you don't get a me again.....make me feel guilty.....and you will get a link. It's just much easier to stay organized through email.

Mr. Mottram.....The Blogfather, and creationist of the insanely popular, rad, and informative (I'm really only saying this because I want him to hire me. so need a "make fun of people" guy) Fanhouse.....will be in Miami all next week for the SuperBowl. Sports Bloggers Live will be on site and will undoubtedly have some insane guests. Well one of those guests happens to be yours truly. I am certain to be the lowest guest on the totem pole, but I'm going to try my darnedest to give my two cents on everything involving the Super Bowl Broadcast and the Announcing Team.

This should take place Thursday around lunchtime, and I'll give you some more info as it comes to me (Seriously......they've had Bob Costas, Lee Corso, Jim Nantz, Peter King, AND Wayne Brady......I don't know how I can compete). Below is Jamie on Cold Pizza talking about the Top 40 Sports Figures of 2006 which AA was a part of.


Onto the links.....sponsored by Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars"......

We'll do it all
On our own

We don't need
Or anyone
If I link here
If I just link here
Would you link with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
they're not enough

If I link here
If I just link here
Would you link with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a link-garden that's bursting into life

Stephon Marbury is going to be an announcer? (NBA Fanhouse)
Funny article about Super Bowl wagers (Extrapolater)
The NFL Draft Redo (Complete Sports)
Donde Esta Gerry? (Just Call Me Juice)
Jeff Garcia on Leno (The 700 Level)
Another great Sports Blogger Interview (The Big Picture)
A funny take on the NBA's Announcers (The Sports Hernia)
Jeremey Piven will be in TNT's All-Star commercials......greaaaaat. (Sports Media Watch)

And finally a funny tidbit from reader Riggster......

Not sure if this qualifies as "Awful Announcing" but it made me laugh as I was listening: I was listening to the Lakers game last night on AM570 KLAC as they were playing the Warriors. Color commentator Mychal Thompson was talking about Kobe Bryant. He said, "All Kobe needs to do is average 8 points a quarter, if he does that he'll average 24 points." A few seconds later, as Spero Dedes was continuing to call the play by play, Thompson mentioned that the producer corrected him and the correct total would be 32 points." Thompson attended the University of Minnesota and excelled in basketball, he is still the schools leading scorer. They must not make the basketball players take math up there.

They must not. Have a great weekend!

Nice on making your way up the blog chain.

Tangent: Rick Majerus is making my head hurt by describing Michigan-Indiana as a "Gerald Ford game," and he has not described WTF that means.

When are we gonna see an Awful Announcing interview on The Big Picture?

You might be right about competing with Costas - he's pretty awesome. But Lee Corso? I've got faith in you on that one.
