#1 How do you watch/listen to football/baseball broadcasts....08-04-2013, 04:35 PM
Broadcasts need two to bring you the game. TV needs a play-by-play announcer and a camera. Radio needs a play-by-play announcer and a color announcer.
When watching TV, you know the outcome of a play as it happens. But for radio, for excitement, you need the play-by-play announcer to tell you what is happening. It's the radio announcer that provides the excitement. For TV, it's the camera.
When I was a kid, it was exciting to hear Bill Stern call the Bobby Thompson home run when the Dodgers beat the Giants in the bottom of the ninth in '51 for the playoff victory that sent the Dodgers into the World Series (which they lost). And it was exciting to hear the announcer describe a Johnny Lujac (Notre Dame QB) throw a touchdown pass to win a game.
I like radio. Besides, I don't have to sit immobile in front of the boob tube to know what's going on.
So what's your choice?
Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.
