Like Can You Hear Me Now? And why are you YELLING
Ok I get it, presumably we All need to be “Pumped
Up!” Which is why Sports Announcers get excited with their Fake Enthusiasm…
Obviously I’m not a Sports Announcer, nor have
I ever been to Broadcasting School, and many will probably also debate my lack
of Journalism intellect. Yet that beig said, do they actually teach how to “Get
Excited” and feverishly increase Thar Vocal Chords to a Ranting, Foaming, Screaming
Pitch at Broadcasting School?
And I know, if Yuhs Don’t have Anything Nice to
say, you’re Not supposed to say anything, Righto? But since someone in
particular in Ye Blogosphere continues Heaping glowing Praise upon one certain Part
time IndyCar lead Announcer, then I can Gory Well Disagree with him!
I’m certain that Kevin Lee’s a very nice
person, and I find him to be a capable Pitlane Reporter, but when it comes to
him filling in for Leigh Diffey I simply Groan in Displeasure!
And perhaps it’s simply a bi-product of my
being Blind? Since after all Blind people do have super Powers, Hya! Hence may
be it’s just my increased Hearing powers, Huh, What did you say? Or may be it’s
a Midwest Accent thing?
But whenever I hear Kevin in the “Big Chair”
All I hear is the annoying screaming tones of Oh No Mr. Bill when he tries mimicking
Diffey’s “Enthusiasm,” for which some say they’d like Leigh Diffey to drop the
Shouting a notch or two…
As Kevin’s “Excitement” simply comes across as
the most Phonies, Hoaky, Pre-manufactured Fake Enthusiasm I’ve ever Heard! Not
to mention he sounds like he’s reading from a Cue Card when explaining Motor Racing
101 to us.
Thus I found it pretty S-A-D how I was
absolutely Jubilantly Overjoyed, doing my Bestest Pee Wee Herman impersonation
of I Don’t have to listen to Kevin Ha Ha! When I was able to Pull-up the
IndyCar Radio Road America Broadcast on the Internet instead, when Mark
Gravelly’ James voice came Booming in loud ‘N clear on my Confuzer’s speakers
when I “dialed Up” WFNI 1075 “the Fan” at 9AM Pacific, Hurrah!
And then I chuckled to myself at race’s end how
I got to hear All of the Podium interviews instead of having to race over to NBC
Sports Lame Arse RASSCAR’s Back Preamble, Spew!
As I could tell by how the laps were counting
down slowly due to the four Cautions the race was gonna Bump Up against NBC
Sports Ditching IndyCar’s at 11:45AM (Pacific) in favour of those Taxicab
With IndyCar Fans getting Shafted All around
again, with the “JV” team calling that Canned
Road America Qualifying show in the middle of Saturday Night, along with being
constantly Bombarded by ‘lil Ironhead’ (Dale Earnhardt Jr.) making Musak’ at
Nashville TV Promoes. And El Capitano’ (Roger Penske) says IndyCar Needs
Eyeballs on It, Oh Never Mind!
