Agree...today fans are stuck with the Joe Buck's and Jim Nantz's of the world.

Those guys are competent and professional but nothing to get excited about.

RIP to Leslie Nielson, Enberg and Mel Allen in that Naked Gun clip.

The voice of SB20. The rotation between him, Al Michaels and Pat Summerall was A1. How spoiled were we Gen Xers and baby boomers, eh. Scully, Garagiola, in addition to the aforementioned. A golden age of sports broadcasting.

I was a doubter, but maybe, just maybe we can win with pitching, defense and fundamentals.

Yes, Enberg and Merlin Olson on SBXX. Fond memories. My VHS tape still works. Need to transfer that at some point.

Oh, My!
Scully, Garagiola and Kubek...3/4 of the NBC Saturday game along with Costas. We were spoiled.

RIP, Mr. Enberg. You were the consummate sports announcer.
