Joe Buck is a fine sportscaster in the current mold of seemingly interchangeable people that look good on TV, can handle at least baseball and football adequately, and have a fairly bland on-air persona.
In baseball, he's saddled with the oft-times annoying Tim McCarver, at least on his national FOX telecasts. He seems to have a better chemistry with Troy Aikman.
Did you hear what he said about Phillies guy Harry Kalas tonight? Harry and his son, Todd - who is a Tampa Bay announcer - presented the starting lineups.
He said that if he had Harry's voice, he'd just stay at home all day and talk to himself! Point taken, though.
It's interesting that the announcing gene has been passed from father to son in a number of instances. It was Joe's Dad who had the classic call of Gibson's homer "I don't believe what I just saw".
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
