I hate to agree with Phil Mushnick however he is right on this one. I drive every friday night to the Jersey shore and John Sterling makes me want to drive my car into oncoming traffic. Enough with the f'ing sponsors....the first pitch, 15th out....first strikeout....Hideki Matsui.....call to the bullpen.....the speed of the pitch......:arrrh: Oh yeah...every fly ball is a HR.

Here's the article: http://www.nypost.com/seven/07062007/sports/yankee_radio__the_worst_sports_phil_mushnick.htm

Do they also have the woman too that freaked out when Clemens was with Steinbrenner?

Unfortunatley yes. Suyzn Waldman. I would put her pic up but I dont want to make any gentlemen blind or vomit.

I wish the yankees would bring back Joe Angel to do the games. Or perhaps Dwayne Staats. John Sterling is a fuckin' hack. I cant believe he use to do hockey also for the NY Islanders.

As a Yankee fan, I fucking hate Sterling, however, XM has opened my eyes to the fact that 99% of the radio announcers are homers that openly root for the home team and have nothing constructive to add to a broadcast. It really is a sham.

A play by play announcer should be able to paint a visual picture in your head about whats going on in the game on radio. Sterling and Waldman just make you have nightmare's. I really miss Phil Rizzuto alot. Bob Uecker right now is the new Phil Rizzuto.

The Rangers broadcast they do on 1080 here is tolerable compared to watching Tom Hicks run our team into the ground.

Fuck Tom Hicks.

Hockey still has the most colorfull announcers. I like listening to people like Mike Lange, Rick Jennerette, John Weiderman and Joe Bowen.

Fuck Tom Hicks.
I'd like to know what he's doing with the Yankees money from the profit sharing.

Angel stunk too. Maybe it was because he was with Sterling but I didn't like him either. The current combo is the worst though. It is embarrassing to be a Yankee fan listening to the games, especially when you are around fans of another team.

Sterling and Wlaman suck ass. A fucking 12-3 game shouldn't get the same treatment for the final out that the final out of the World Series gets. "The-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e Yankees win!" No shit, the game was over in the 5th inning. He has so many fucking "signature calls" that he doesn't do anything else. I'd be willing to bet he even has a HR call worked out just in case Wil Nieves ever hits one.

He's just a pompous ass and a giant bore. He has nothing interesting to say and he wears a blazer to the stadium to do radio broadcasts. Unfortunately, I think his job is safe for as long as he wants to keep broadcasting unless he inadvertantly says, "N_gger," on the air.

It def gets annoying but ALOT of radio announcers through that shit in there

AMEN.

The one thing I can say about sterling/waldman is at least they dont constantly through out "our team" and "we win" that shit drives me fucking ape shit

uckkkk



I have to say, and I know you guys are gonna destroy me but sterling doesnt bother me THAT much, my fucking problem and the reason I welcome away games on XM is fucking Waldman. That bitch is fucking terrible!! Her voice is grating, she laughs at any fucking dumb thing sterling says and honestly a women has no place announcing a ball game.
PLUS shes a fucking pig.


Sterling is knowledgeable, he isnt as big a homer as most other announcers, and if you take away the "abomb by arod" "the milkman ..." shit he actually calls a good game... well he would need to save the yankees win shit for post season and stop getting fly balls and home runs mixed up.... but besides all that he's not bad :icon_wink


listening to Waldman makes me wish for the steiner days

I loved the way Rizzuto called the games, I remember some of them back in the day. John Sterling sometimes can be very annoying and the bad thing is he used to be good and have some decent calls that aren't stupid.

A Non Yankees guy I liked to hear was the old Houston Astros guy they had here in Texas, Milo Hamilton. He also used to do Braves games long ago, he was also a good radio guy.
