Harry Caray and Steve Stone
I always loved Skip Caray and Ernie Johnson, but probably because I watched the Braves EVERY day in the summer as a teen.
Mets -- SNY broadcast team of Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez, & Ron Darling.
Great announcers! I always enjoyed listening to Braves games with that pair at the mike!
Marty Brennaman (Cincinnati Reds...I lived in Cincy briefly as a kid. Was a Reds fan before the Rays stole me over.)
Sean McDonough (1997 UF/FSU in particular)
..and I agree about Skip and Ernie. (John Sterling was oddly in that Braves booth as well)
As a kid they were on every day. Hated the braves, but loved the broadcasts.
Agreed! But I would throw Pete van Wieren in there too.
There's a lot of guys that come to mind, but since Im a Gator, I'll give some kudos to David Steele. I always liked his style.
Love the guy's enthusiasm but no ... absolutely not.
OP- that was funny!
For college football it's easy- Todd Blackledge is my favorite and Gary Danielson is second.
Depends on the criteria. It was my Answer, because I enjoy listening to him the best.
Mechanics and delivery are completely irrelevant to me.
I either enjoy listening or I don't.
On game days, I turn the TV volume low, and listen to Mick.
He is one of us.
That's all good, but his normal commentary is so drab. And then the nicknames ... the forced nicknames, god how they hurt. And while I love a good "oh my" in a highlight clip, it happens like 300 times a game and you just think "Mick, you're trying too hard."
Yeah those are pretty common complaints about Mick. Maybe its having lived away from Florida now for so long. His voice feels like Gator sports to me. warts and all.
No one I'd rather listen to call a game. To each their own.
I'm probably the only guy who likes Dwayne Staats too. (Rays fan)
Hank Stram would call Bucs games back in the 70's. Guy would accurately describe each offensive play, before the snap.
Hank Stram never had an offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator, or special teams coach during his legendary career with the Dallas Texans/Kansas City Chiefs. He was an assistant coach at Miami before he was given the Head Coach position with the Dallas Texan. The Bucs first win in the NFL was against the Hank Stram coached New Orleans Saints.
For the Braves fans, my favorite combo was Milo Hamilton and Ernie Johnson. Anyone remember "Home Run for the Money" during Braves broadcasts?
No way, Staats is excellent
I look at it like this: could you imagna anyone else calling a gator game?? No way! I'm with you on that, tally..and I also love Dwayne starts calling a rays ga,e as well as Dave Michigan calling a lightning game!
As for Florida football goes, when mick's I me comes, I would love to hear Jeff Cardozo man inherit the torch. He's a great gator, I know him and he's as genuine as they come.
I remember Dwayne Staats doing Cubs games with Harry. He'd do radio for 3 innings and do 3 on TV swapping out with Steve Stone.
