Euro 2008

Guess I’m not alone in finding Tommy Smyth’s commentary on ESPN completely infuriating. I cannot bear to hear him talk about “bulging the old onion bag.” Meanwhile Andy Gray is showing the depth and sophistication of his experience. I can’t help thinking that ESPN thought they were hiring the different Tommy Smith, since on the face of it, the one they have is completely unqualified to comment.

  1. I’m watching Italy-Spain in the first overtime and yes, the announcers are annoying. For the last week and a half I’ve been watching games from various pubs in the south of England and each of the two networks that covered games did a much better job than these two. The refs were better as well, but I don’t think we can blame that on ABC/ESPN —
