Putting Jack Buck beneath Bob Costas discounts the former's amazing ability to dabble in all things broadcasting. His "At Your Service" programs on KMOX back in the 60s stack up with his years calling the Cardinals. Not to say Costas isn't versatile - I like Bob and don't mean to hate - but anyone in St. Louis can tell you where the two should rank in relation to each other.

It's ok, I have enough hate for Costas for more than one person.

Including Costas.

I know it's not a sport, but wrestling's been on ESPN. Close enough. Bill Walton couldn't carry Gordon Solie's jock.

Bill Walton can't even carry Larry Zybysko's jock.

Bill Walton makes it but Benny Parsons or Dr. Jerry Punch or Ken Squire or Buddy Baker doesn't? and how about long timers Lou Boudreau? Vince Lloyd? and if Tony Kubek makes it, then so should Joe Garagiola

I'm just glad Ernie Harwell got recognized, even though he's too low on the list (him and Buck are top 10's, period), so I can ignore the glaring issues and problems on the list.

Bob Costas was on Conan the other night. They announced that he was a 19-time Emmy winner. Nineteen?? Goodness gracious.

Yeah, not a fan of this list. I was kinda hoping Kevin Harlan would get an honorable mention, as I think he is one of the best PBP men out there today. I agree that Jack Buck should be ahead of Costas. Not a big fan of Joe Buck being on the list though. I like him when he did(and still does once in a blue moon) Cards games locally, but he irritates the hell out of me on national broadcasts. I'd say the extremely underwhelming call of the Tyree catch last year in the SB and the overreaction to the Randy Moss mooning incident are the two things that turned me against him.

Bah. Many people aren't aware that there are a bunch of different Emmy awards (Business & Financial, Daytime Entertainment, News & Documentary, Humanitarian & Public Service, Technology & Engineering, Primetime Entertainment, and Sports). He's a 10-time winner of the Sports Emmy for Outstanding Sports Personality, Studio Host; a 4-time winner of the previous award, Outstanding Host or Commentator; a 1-time winner for Outstanding Sports Personality, Play-by-Play; there are 3 more Sports Emmys for writing or hosting in some capacity, and finally a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Informational Series for "Later With Bob Costas" (1993).

Floyd gave up a lot in the negotiations. First, it's at 154. That's Oscar's comfortable weight, while Floyd's only 3 fights into 147, and I don't think has ever actually weighed in above 146.
