He get's "special treatment" because he's probably the best sports announcer in the US. The fact that he calls all the big NFL games for Fox and is the go to guy for the MLB playoffs speaks for itself.
For a guy who doesn't call hockey as far as I can tell, he' does a pretty damn amazing job. Probably better than 60% of the pbp guys out there right now.
Can't believe how many of the names he knows by number.
If you actually listen to the conversation prior, he says he's a season ticket holder and watches the games.
Still as boring and monotone and ever
Joe Buck is the best in the business. Understand that this is him calling a sport he's not familiar with, on the spot, when he doesn't know half the players.
