More Examples of Why John Sterling Sucks


I’m on record saying that I think John Sterling is possibly one of the WORST baseball announcers to listen to. For a man in his 60s to keep using and overusing such hokey, lame home run calls as he does is inexcusable. Now, obviously, I’m no Yankees fan, but I would hope that any reasonable Yankees fan would agree that Sterling comes off as a tool of the largest order when he makes such calls as “It’s a text message, from Teixeira” when making a home run call. Just describe the goddamn game and tell me what’s happening. I find it astonishing that for a team with as much money as the Yankees that they have the most unwatchable TV broadcast (with Michael Kay and Ken Singleton) and the most unlistenable radio broadcast (Suzyn Waldman makes me want to insert a chisel into my brain.)

Anyways… Here is John Sterling doing his “Yankees Win” call after a game last season. Look at how he looks around immediately afterwards seeking approval from those around him. If you’ve never seen a 60 year old shake and shimmy like this before you’re lucky; it’s an image that won’t leave your brain soon.

    i like the shaking, at least he’s into it…
    but the looking around afterwards is pretty lame. makes you wonder if he does that EVERY TIME.

    “Look at how he looks around immediately afterwards seeking approval from those around him.”

    I think you need an “AS IF” in there somewhere, seeing as this is pure speculation on your part.

    It’s almost like you learned NOTHING from Jerrod Morris…
