    There's two of them.

    And damn you, I just googled "Art Modell" for you and saw his prickish face all around the championship trophy. Goddammit.

    Four words: I MISS PETER GAMMONS! (But I can catch him on MLB Network.)

    Back on topic: Kenny Mayne is great hosting Sportscenter. I about fell over the first time he hosted and I heard his Yahtzee homer call. He seems so misused now.

    The NFL Countdown crew is great, and same goes for Fowler and company on College Gameday.

    With NFL Countdown, Chris Berman and Keyshawn Johnson. Really?

    Sean McDonough. I think he is an incredibly smooth play-by-play guy.

    A few mentioned here that I like but didn't realize they work for ESPN, because I just don't really pay attention to who works for what network:

    Sean McDonough
    Van Gundy
    Ian Darke is amazing.

    Neil Everett needs a fist in the face.

    McDonough, Dan Schulman, Raftery, Ian Darke (absolutely the best), Fowler. I hate Neil Everett as well and if I catch the L.A. SportsCenter, I click off immediately.

    Even though he's mostly on ABC now, John Saunders.
    Agreed on Mayne ... he's overused as the court jester.
    Berman's been mailing it in for, what, at least 10 years now?

    Buster Olney and Jason Stark for baseball. Mel Kiper is a must-have near the draft, although I can barely stand draft day because of Berman.

    And I listen to Cowherd every day. (So much for my SJ cred)

    PTI is entertaining.
  10. I've really soured on Kiper over the years. Probably because us who listen to the Sports Reporters on 980 in DC are subjected to a "double-dose" of Kiper once a week during football season. Christ, I want to stab my eardrums with Phillips head screwdrivers. I know he's "paid" to know the draft, but Jesus, YOU ARE AN EXTREMELY WELL PAID PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATOR! TAKE A GOD DAMN BREATH ONCE IN A WHILE AND SLOW THE FUCK DOWN! YOU DO NOT GET A BONUS FOR MOST WORDS SAID IN ONE BREATH.

    Come on man!!!!

    And a third thumbs up for Sean McDonough. Back in my Mets fanboi days, I used to dislike him b/c of something he may not have even said about the Mets, but the guy is as close to perfect a broadcaster as there is. He just sounds professional, all the time. He knows his stuff and never ever lets it become about him.

    Major props, too, for being the son of sports journalism royalty yet still being his own man and criticizing Red Sox ownership, even if it cost him his PBP job in Boston, and being professional enough to go out and do lesser profile sports afterward. Think Joe Buck would ever do any of that?
