Gus Johnson

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by pride of pleasantville, Mar 26, 2010.

  1. I know this is a journalism not a broadcasting board but I need to vent about Gus Johnson. He has to be the worst CBS announcer he just goes "Holloway for a deep 3..... OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" It is very irritating. I am the only person who feels this way? He drove me crazy during the Xavier vs K-State game.

    Gus Johnson and Jay Bilas would be fantastic together.

    I love Johnson by the way. Sports are not played in the library.

    I had to save this.

    Yes. It is on his internets, which I hear they have on computers now.
  9. I agree but he seems to scream about everything. And Bilas did the Kentucky I believe. Also, I would rather hear the crowd or the color guy then Johnson screaming like an alum from one of these schools.

    Gary Thorne screams louder but he will not do so during a late September game against the Blue Jays.

    Johnson was going absolute off-the-wall apeshit during a Bills-Jaguars game last season. That's no good for anybody.

    Do NOT blaspheme GUS JOHNSON'S name around here.


    Now, if you'll excuse, I'm going to get an ICED TEAAAAAA. And maybe a POWERBAAAAAAAAAR ... YES! HA HAAAAAAA!

    And when he did Knicks games as their play-by-play guy it didn't work as well because it sounds like just a loud shill when you're doing it for a team that's winning 20 games.

    I do like it for March Madness. The moon landing by Gus made me think of other historical things he could announce.
