I'm not even convinced that Gresh knows football. I've said this before on here, but whoever hired him, had to have sat in that meeting and said, you know what this show needs? Someone with a terrible, grating voice, with no name recognition, who panders to the lowest common denominator....I've got it..Andy Gresh!

I think Gresh does a good job with football.

But then, I don't know football!!!!

The weird part is that sack of crap keeps getting jobs. He got canned from the station in Providence and landed on XM with Mad Dog Radio, then he actually left that to take this gig. Insane. The only station that got it right was the one in Providence. He's got no talent whatsoever. If TSH could get Holley and Merloni to take over mid days, it would be fantastic.

I enjoy the song Boys of Fall. This montage doesn't really work for me so much for hockey though.

His Wikipedia used to say that he got his first radio gig after marrying the daughter of an ESPN Radio executive.

Might tell you something...

I'm sure that's how he got his first job, but what it really tells me is that his wife must have been desperate.

Ron Borges
Thomas beaten by shot from a black hockey player. Karma says maybe he should have gone to the White House?

He tweeted something about the Karma of an african american scoring the GW goal on Thomas given the White House situation.

I'm surprised anyone would be following Ron Borges in the first place to even know about it.
