Fox’s New Play-By-Play Announcer Mike Goldberg Had A Rough Sunday, Gets Benched

We made a montage of some of the worst calls from Sunday’s Detroit-Minnesota game. (ICYMI, it was a total shit show.) Oh, and for the record, Don Zimmer does not coach the Vikings.

The Real Loser In The MLB’s World Series Scheduling Failure: FOX

red sox world series

We noted earlier this week that the MLB made a major mistake in scheduling the World Series by having four of seven possible games compete directly with the NFL. As bad as that looks for the league and the sport in general (“Hey, did you watch the World Series? Me neither. Oooh, Jaguars-Vikings is on!”), the real loser is FOX.

Gus Johnson Might Be The Voice Of The 2018 And 2022 World Cup. Is This A Good Thing?

Fox Analyst Daryl Johnston Is The Ugly Christmas Sweater Hipster Grinch

Fox analyst Daryl Johnston is taking the Ugly Christmas Sweater trend to a new level. It appears he is intentionally wearing the Grinch’s exact attire, right down to the belt. Yet he IRONICALLY has “Merry Christmas” prominently displayed. And it’s a V-Neck.

V-Neck + Irony = Typical Hipster. Typical hipster may sound un-hipster, but that too is ironic, making Daryl Johnston Über Hipster. Also, being on TV broadcasting your hipsterness to all of your hipster-disciples is even more ironic, and the resulting Überhipsterdom is immeasurable.

A big h/t to our friend CJ Fogler for the screencap.
