Welcome to the first weekly installment of The Pam Ward Chronicles. I'm going to be keeping track of the Announcing Quotes throughout the day and I ask that you join in. Please leave any that you come across in the comments.
We're starting today with a few gems from Colin Cowherd's night in the booth. As much as I can't stand the guy's voice he wasn't really THAT bad. I'm a big fan of Rob Stone and Sean McDonough and they counteracted any nonsense Cowherd or Spielman put out there.
OMDQ's goodness will still be going on below this post so be sure to check out his posts as well. Enjoy the day of football folks!
