Honestly I can't stand them. Some of the gimmicks they pull are worth a laugh but usually I just shake my head and change the channel.

They definitely have their moments, haha. I mean honestly, those of you who can't stand them, would you prefer some monotone robot giving your sports news?

Best way to put it

http://www.whitecove...ns-opinion.html



He’s there to bring you sports highlights. It’s better if he’s funny, of course, or if he infuses his personality into the sportscast.


That doesn’t mean he should try to be bigger than the show itself — which he does, like, all the time — or fill our brains with idiotic voices and one-liners that would make even Seth McFarlane on a bad day shake his head in disbelief.

These two bring way more to the table than Don Taylor. I can't stand the Professor Frink voice he does, or how he adds "-ian" to any last name. I don't care who used to wear which number, or where mom keeps the peanut butter you cliche loving hack!

I love you

I thought I was the only one who can't stand Don.
He needs some new material and over the years
I've gotten sick of the act. He doesn't seem like he knows much
About hockey. He's more of a showman than a sportscaster.

I'm not a fan. If you are gonna act like they do you need to be a lot funnier than they are. Yelling Bobrovsky over and over is the exact kind of thing that I'm talking about. It's so forced and unfunny. They also do a poor job with the highlights often because they are trying to think up the next goofy quip rather than being professional.

And that's reason enough for me to watch. Sports is entertainment to begin with. Jay and Dan may not be everyone's cup of tea, but they're trying to make it enjoyable for the viewer. Otherwise, it really is the same goal, save, slam dunk, etc, etc, that we have seen over the past 30 years.
