FYI
For a mere $150, there's a device out there that you can attach to your receiver to delay the radio signal to up to 16 seconds. Essentially, you can sycronize your radio to the tv screen, and George Grande no longer.

that would be great for football too. the price is a little too steep IMO. If anyone gets this, let me know how it works out.

I don't have a choice. I have to mostly watch game archives after the game has already finished, as I don't get FSN Ohio in my area. Why? I don't know.

I listen via XM Radio and the broadcast (radio) is about 12 seconds behind the TV. I have TIVO so I can delay the TV side of it.

(Fingers crossed for a win tonight :thumbup: )

he has been in the business forever. it's just like anything else, politics. he's probably a nice guy. someone in the Reds leadership probably plays golf with him or some such nonsense.

to answer your question, I don't know. He is terrible.

He's "folksy" and that plays well here in our little corner of hades.

Plus he's a great guy. Both in and out of the booth. You know his story. Always does the little things. A natural leader in the truck. And he calls the game the way it's supposed to be called. Etc.

Dizzy Dean was "folksy" George is vanilla, he's the eleven o'clock service in the church of tired hyprbole and forced metaphors.

How does he still have a job?I subscribe to MLB.TV and not MLB Radio because I like listening to Grande better than listening to Marty. I also like listening to George better than not seeing the game at all. Other than that, I don't like it so much. ;)

Gotta try this with XM and digital cable (no tivo though). This seems like the greatest invention ever though, too much for me right now.

Call your cable company. The increase for me was around $2.95 per cable box conversion to TIVO. It is well worth it.

Do you work for XM or Best Buy or something? You seem to be pushing XM and Tivo a lot. I guess it could be you just really enjoy those products and services. I'm just wondering not a big deal.

I must be a freak cause I dont mind him. Does talk abit too much,and seem to root for other team (Cards) but he is a great guy,and doesnt bother me. Love Marty though,even if he has a big ego.:beerme:

Brilliant idea. Thanks! I don't know why I hadn't thought of this.

Keep your fingers crossed. It worked.

:laugh:

No, I do not work for XM or Best Buy (TIVO). My wife thinks I should work for XM though ( :D ). I just really enjoy XM (OK, I'm addicted!). My wife is the TIVO/DVR junkie.

Let's hope I really enjoy the last two days of the weekend resulting in REDS WINS!
