    Gus Johnson is an obvious Cleveland homer. I've never seen anything like it.

    That's exactly what I did. Turned on some rock n roll and watched the Ravens win.

    Not just a Cleveland homer. I had the game Tivo'd last week and he was the same way towards the Raiders. Every time Andrew Walter completed a pass, deep, short, wherever, it was "ANDREW WALTERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!"

    Just makes the win all the sweeter.

    I just find it hard to believe that they can't find better guys to be Network announcers. It's a pretty damn good gig, and even though Johnson and Tasker are relegated to CBS low ratings games we should expect better.

    Remember when Gus was a sports guy in DC? He was funny to listen to because he tried to speak like such a sports guy. Met him a few years ago shopping for sunglasses when we were in Jacksonville for a game. He's a nice guy.

    We're just going to have to get used to this. The more we're looked at as the big bad favorite against teams like the browns and raiders the more the announcers are going to seem like they're routing for the underdog to pull an upset. Then again that crew just stinks.

    How can he be a Cle and Oak homer? Get some sense people. He's rooting for a close game and the last 2 weeks we were supposed to dominate so of course he's going to build up the underdog.

    Whenever I hear a guy as irritating as that, all I have to do to cheer up is think back to Dan Deirdorf, or that semi-literate homeless derelict that used to broadcast the Browns games...Myron something or other.

    The guy is just as enthusiastic about the Ravens. He is over-the-top enthusiastic. But he is fair about it.
