Also.. Mike Crispino, the guy who fills in for Sam Rosen for the Rangers. Hes not an idiot or anything, but he says "nifty" about 57 times a game and examples of his goal calls.. "and messier has SCORED!!!!! (it wasnt even messier).. "AND A SCORE!!!" ... "OH NO!! ITS IN THE BACK OF THE NET!!" I give the guy credit though.. he isnt too bad, just gets over exitcted and calls goals weird.
1. Don Cherry (the last bastion of McCarthyism...ugh!)
2. Greg Millen (you sucked as a player, and suck even worse in the booth)
3. Chris Berman (go away!)
4. Darren Pang (see Millen)
5. Don Whitman (stick to CFL coverage)
Glen Healy is up there. Greg Millen might bother me more but I also am forced to hear him more. Get them both off of tv forever.
As well, Chris Simpson on Sportsnet. She's a cougar that's probably been buttended by quite a few of her brother's teammates over the years. A lot of broadcasts might have bimbo hosts but they're supposed to be young and hot, not old and used up.
I am shocked that no one has mentioned the worst color guy of all time. None other than Terry Crisp. Flip to a Preds game on Center Ice once in a while and prepare to be embarrassed for the game. "Mr. Ice says I am going to be a bit chippy tonight and not cooperate with a hockey game". It is Sesame Street meets the NHL.
I'd say Gary Thorne, but there is no personality there to speak of. If you see anything on MSG you'll rue the days that Sam Rosen is out. Mike Crispino has absolutely no business on television and even less business calling a hockey game. It's painfully obvious JD wishes nothing but harm on him.
Chris Berman: Yeah, we get it, his name is pronounced Mar-tah Bro-doo. It wasn't funny the first time, sure as hell wasn't funny the other 85 times you said it.
