Phil Mushnick, you are my hero!

Thank you, Phil Mushnick. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Mushnick went off on Yankee radio announcer John Sterling Friday, saying he “may be the worst broadcaster in professional sport.”

I can’t disagree. I think getting a root canal without novacain is less painful than listening to Sterling and Suzie.

Here is Mushnick’s rant.

Sunday afternoon on WCBS Radio, John Sterling, into the seventh inning of the Yankees-Orioles, four times had launched his “It is high! . . . It is far! . . .” home run call. And not until he pulled it out a fifth time was a home run actually hit. In a game that included one home run, Sterling, in service to his relentless self-promotion, called five of them. Nothing can stop him.

But that the “Voice of the New York Yankees” may be the worst broadcaster in professional sports has been a 20-year absurdity. That he would continually deprive a radio-reliant audience of accurate descriptions – not to mention creating the false hope of Yankee homers hit so high and so far that they’re caught for outs – while continually suffering the embarrassment of his selfish and dishonest devices, reveals a man so stuck on himself that we all get stuck.

The logical notion that Sterling would grow weary of making a jerk of himself is no longer a logical consideration.

Here’s a little audio/video of Sterling for your entertainment.

    I disagree. I like Sterling. He’s entertaining and he doesn’t try to BS you like the ESPN guys. Also, he doesn’t put you to sleep like the Mets crew.

    As for Sooz….they can find Johnny a better partner, she stinks.

    I’d rather listen to him than Ken Harrelson any day of the week. Sterling is tolerable, but “Hawk” is a grade-A douchebag.

    And whoever made that audio clip you put up is an even bigger douchebag than Harrelson.

  3. Ed Valentine says:

    Problem with Sterling is he’s all about Sterling. He doesn’t give a crap about the game. He just wants to do his schtick, which makes him sound stupid most of the time, and wrong way too often. And he loves to try and tell you how smart he is instead of just broadcasting the stupid game.

  4. J Rose says:

    I’ll take Remy’s self-deprecating hurmor and Orsillo’s giggling over Sterling’s schtick and a weeping Waldman any day

    but you’re right, Adam, Harrelson is completely unlistenable (?)
