Bryant Gumbel

So, it's probably a good thing not too many people get the NFL Network. Bryant Gumbel does the play-by-play and Chris Collinsworth is the color guy.

The only reason I even witnessed this sideshow is because the Redskins happen to be my local team and the game was broadcast locally.

Anyway, without going into depth (because others have done that: clicky), just let me mention that Bryant Gumbel is so goddamn bad at this gig I couldn't really turn away. It was great comedy.

It sounded like Martha Stewart wandered into the wrong studio and was forced at gunpoint (Collinsworth on gun) to do the broadcast. It was all blown calls, no insider knowledge of the game, and that terrible high-pitched voice.
