I would be in favor of a television device that automatically replaced sounds emanating from John Kruk's piehole with Chariots of Fire.

When Adam Jones walked up and just started in eating, with no introduction, comment, or reaction, and Chris Berman goes, "And we are joined by Adam Jones, who seems to be enjoying these ribs," it was the greatest moment of live television I have ever seen.

Kruk's look of "WTF Adam Jones, why you eatin mah ribs," was just epic.

I'll tell you what annoys me is when they interview someone like Josh Hamilton or George Brett, and make the live image of the HR derby just a small little box in the corner. I turned on the damn HR Derby so I could watch the HR Derby... not so I could watch Chris Berman interview Josh Hamilton while ignoring the live action. It's not like live baseball where there may be little action going on and an interview spices it up a bit... it's the HR Derby! It's constant action and I want to watch it, damn it!

Yep. I had to mute the sound after a while. Chris Berman is only tolerable in short bursts.
 
2012-07-10 01:31:03 PM
No thanks. I'm one of those freaks who finds chewing/swallowing/gulping/hawking and spitting/etc. noises disturbing. Same with watching all of the above.

I was really surprised to find out that it's an actual 'thing', courtesy of the 20/20 episode that was playing on one of the laundromat's TVs a couple months ago. Thankfully I only have a mild case, evidently it really ruins a few peoples' lives. For me it's only mildly unpleasant if I'm not eating as well *and* I can't look away, and it's more unpleasant if I'm under stress. Ex-wife used to do this to me on purpose to get under my skin when we were arguing.

Although it isn't ruining my life, I guess I'm one of those freaks too. If I'm quite a bit more agitated than usual it starts to drown out the thoughts in my head. Quite annoying! At any rate, it's made me much more self-conscious of my own eating noises and I probably go through greater lengths than most around me to muffle the sounds. I didn't know it was a "thing" though although now that I read what I've typed I feel a bit weird. I'll have to look into this...

/Would still rather listen to a chorus of Kruks sucking ribs than Berman's orgasmic cries at each home run ball

the celebrity all star game was pretty bad, when the guy says "you know since this is like live to tape or whatever...can we edit it so I say the other team won in the beginning" it's almost as if Youtube production quality will be the norm in 2-3 years

That would be the opposite end of the spectrum from Berman.

Joe Buck: "And here's the pitch...Fielder swings...hits it deep...it's a home run."

Tim McCarver: "What he did, Joe, was that he swung the bat, and hit the ball hard. He hit it hard enough that it cleared the outfield fence, and that's a home run."

Tim McCarver: "What he did, Joe, was that he swung the bat, and hit the ball hard. He hit it hard enough that it cleared the outfield fence, and that's a home run."


Joe Morgan: Back when I played with Davey Concepcion, we focused more on fundamentals, and doing things the right way. Back on topic, Davey Concepcion should be in the Hall of Fame. I mean, he won 4 NL pennants, and was so consitent.

Vin Scully: *headdesk*

(Actually, someone should start a Kickstarter to bribe whoever has the rights to next year's All-Star Game so that the entire game is called by Vin Scully, as the only man in the booth. No interviews, no mics in the dugout. It would be a fitting tribute to the greatest announcer of all time, and an amazing call to listen to.)

//I don't disagree with anything else that you said, however. I just think that Scully and Uecker have earned equal footing as far as GOAT.

IIRC, there was something going around online last season where fans were pushing to have Vin Scully call one last World Series game on Fox, and I'm pretty sure Joe Buck even said he'd step aside to let Scully do it. Damn shame that nothing came of it.

Fox still has the ASG next year at CitiField, though it's the last year of Fox's contract.

I have some vague memory of this guy lifting up the leg of a base runner and then tagging him out. I think the base runner may have been a Brave. Google is not helpful. Does anyone remember this? Am I becoming senile?

The man's 84. Let's get moving on this, people.

Hopefully, when he does eventually announce his retirement, he'll give a season or so of notice. If that happens, MLB should let him call the entire WS however he likes.

Even if it was Toronto-San Diego, it would be the highest-rated Series of all time.

That's weird, I have a vague memory of him wrongly being called safe on a key play at first base.. I think it was against the Cardinals.

Yep, thank you. No idea why I thought it was Kruk.

At the time I was sure that he lifted him up...now, after watching it again, I think Gant may have fallen off the bag either way.

/I also didn't remember Gant as being so damned tiny.
