Also hate it when an announcer's voice becomes raspy when yelling (the Capitals announcer is THE THIRD WORST, and that's only because Jack Edwards mother saw fit to give birth to him, and Rick Jeanneret is still doing his "i sound like i'm going into cardiac arrest shtick")
Thorne is best on baseball. He is horrible at hockey at everything except yelling SCORE. Glad he is out of hockey. Tried him again this season during the NCAA frozen four. Nothing has changed. He butchered players names, mis-identified them, he was terrible.
