It's a tough job, done by volunteers across the board. Lots of experience in those chairs, however that experience gets second-guessed because of conflicting information GIVEN to those guys by the others involved.
It is tough for the broadcasters as well as the participants. There is no rehearsal for anyone. It's all live TV guys. Cut them some slack.
I do agree that I could do a good job as an arm-chair broadcaster, but when you're looking at the TV in the booth like those guys are, it is tough.
I'd like to try my hand at it someday. I think it would be lots of fun. My biggest task would be to watch my language.

He makes up sponsors every year that is part of the fun of the event. If I didn't know the movie would I have added "I think al built his condo"

JAYTEE has also been sponsored bu the Badda Bing when the. Sopranos were on. In fact only 1 year was his sponsors not from a movie.

When I ran mine was bobs country bunker.

Us stooges aren't as stoopid as we may appear.

I'm Ron Burgandy?
