But the worship doled out to him during Thursday night's championship game was nauseating. That announcing crew was obviously out of their league, but the truth is the whole Fox production was terrible.
All the confusing numbers across the top of the screen looked like a stock market ticker. But the worst was saved for the closing moments when it became obvious Florida was going to win. Tebow is a terrific kid and a good leader and a wonderful story, no doubt. In fact, I'm guessing he's such a good kid that the kind of high fructose corn syrup served about him by the announcers last night would probably embarrass him to the core.
These guys were so bad I found myself longing for Lindsey Nelson. That's how bad they were. Whatever happened to the days when game announcers actually called the game? Please, somebody in network sports production offices, please put people in the trucks who've actually played a sport. Please put someone in the booth with a mike and tell them to forget the personal pronouns and CALL THE DAMN GAME.
