    Geez, these guys make Hawthorne sound like Vin Scully. It's
    evident that they haven't listened to a whole lot of baseball
    in their day.

    Anybody remember the "Homer at the Bat" episode of "The Simpsons"? Where Marge is holding the video camera at
    Homer's softball game and trying to do play-by-play: "And
    the batter wants to hit the ball and get to first base...and he does...and everybody advances a base...and everybody's happy."
    THIS is what these guys remind me of.

    Yeah that was down right awful. I heard a few minutes on my drive to the Box. I pray neither of those guys ever calls Red Sox games. i am hesitant to even wish them on the Yankees.

    The Yankee's radio guy is John Sterling who is famous for his call
    "Yankees Win - Thu Uh Uh Yankees Win!" He gets to make that call a lot every year.

    Lay off KLSU. They are one of the best college radio stations in the country and G-dub and Serio are pretty good and funny. They've called alot of LSU softball games and I've really enjoyed listening to them.

    On a side note. Any current students remember when G-dub did free style fridays?

    Got to remember that those guys are college students learning how to do this...Not professionals like Hawthorne. I thought they did a decent job seeing as they were probobly only about 21 or 22 years old

    That may well be so. But anybody who has listened to any
    baseball over the radio over the years could've sounded more
    professional than these guys. They need to listen to some Astros
    broadcasts and pick up some pointers on their own if they want to call baseball games in a little more professional manner.

    Of course, 2 days later, I do also realize that these guys are basically fill-ins for when the network can't carry the games. It's not what they normally do, so I guess some mistakes on their part can be overlooked. It's just that Sunday, they sounded like they had no idea of what they were doing.

    Yes, definitely lay off those guys.

    It's not like KLSU has been doing this for years. This is something that just started with an exhibition basketball game last semester.

    I think it's great that there's finally an opportunity for LSU students to do radio play-by-play. It's a learning forum.
