I was bored at work and counted him saying Cowboy thirteen times by the top of the sixth.It's like there's more than two people in the booth or something.

That's a routine post typed well, but it'll stay in the park.

I couldn't tell if he was a Cardinal's announcer or part of the Reds broadcast team!:(

It is painful to listen to him on any night.

He may have been painful,but he had to be better than either of the Cardinal announcers.
One is very monotone and the other is either very unprepared or uninformed.

I would actually put our broadcast team up against any in the majors. I watch on FSOH, and think they all do a very good job.

How many times did he say that Pujols "sets up pitchers"? It didn't make sense the first time but after 5 or so, it got a little old.

You mean Pullholtz?

Why does GG call coaches named "Jose", "Chay-o"? How do you even spell that? He calls Jose Oquendo and Jose Cruz that whenever he speaks of them.

Does anyone else find that his constant catchphrase "you know his story," is even more grating when he never actually tells anyone's story?

And what "equation" is he always giving us the other part of?

Title should be: Grande is painful every night.

I can't stand hearing coco cordero and cowboy 50 times a game

Ah, but it is the "Redbirds" and GG has serious man love for the Cardinals. At least Edmonds doesn't play for them anymore.:rolleyes:

And "Its hit pretty well...but..."

And I hate Jeff Brantley.

Personally I like the fact that George isn't a homer. So whether you think it is "man-love" for Edmonds, or maybe George just enjoys talking about a franchise that has actually had sucess in recent history, I don't care. I like to hear the man's opinion on other teams, players, and front offices. Not that I agree with it all the time, but if everyone agreed there wouldn't be a need for a place like redszone.com

Not to mention how he worked his "man crush" on Jim Edmonds into the conversation at least 3-4 times.

Even had a video highlight reel cued up for him to drool over.

:barf:

George, is that you? ;)

I hate the Cardinals and would rather have a homer bash them the whole game than listen to the whole lovefest displayed by GG.

Ever watch the Extra Innings freeview on Directv? Watching other teams will show you that there are announcers out there that do a FAR worse job than Grande.

He got it!

There are a lot of things to complain about this year with the Reds. George G. is not one of them.

I like George but I wish he would remind me where Griffey hit his 500 homer a few more times a game. It seems like its every time Griffey bats. In all seriousness, I think that if you watch the same guys announcing every game they are going to get old no matter who it is.

Grande is a great guy but I can't stand him. Welsh too.... although I think working with Thom has triggered something in Welsh that has made him more tolerable. I love Brantley and Thom (when hes not in a despressing Reds losing mood).

I wonder if it is even possible for George to go to a commercial break in an inning where the other team scores without saying "but the damage is done." Seriously, I'm not sure if he is even capable of not saying it. He is flat out painful to listen to, but I don't have a radio in the house. I think I may start watching the games on mute.

I really like Grande. We're pretty lucky to have him. Some think he talks too much, but I don't think so.

He goes out saying "the damage is done." So, he has a catch phrase, so what?

I like George. He's pleasant to listen to and is always telling a corny joke, which only he and Chris think is funny. And then that makes me laugh.

He makes me want to take my socks off and stuff them into my ears.

I Agree

We are watching a horror show with a G-rated announcer.
Kind of gets on my nerves.

George Grande is a classy, very nice man....not a good announcer...

Wow. Thank you. That is a genius description and one which helped me to crystallize my thoughts on the manner.
