View Full Version : Reds Broadcasters and Food

I listen to a lot of random games at work besides the Reds, and I don't think I ever hear broadcasters have discussions about food, much less dedicate innings to it as do Thom, Cowboy and Chris. Thom is the linchpin for food banter, usually after he makes a pitch for Kroger or JTM, which he is contractually obligated to do, but then he continues blabbering on about it. Guys, we get it, you probably eat free JTM before/during/after every game and you feel that it's cool and manly to talk meat, but guess what--I don't have JTM at the moment. I'm eating a PB&J and yogurt, so stop the torture, PLEASE.

Used to be excellent beef patties but when they messed with them a few years back and made them pre-cooked they ruined them. I called them about the change and someone was supposed to call me back and let me know why they changed. Never heard from them. Now they never hear from me or my dollars.

Does anyone here honestly believe all these announcers making over 6 figures are eating JTM's? I mean come on.

I mean, I'm just out of college and even I can afford ground beef.

I've never cared much for JTM. Even going back to the 80's and 90's. I thought it was way overrated.

I haven't had a JTM burger since I was a kid in the 90's, and I hated them. Dried out really fast, no flavor.

The way they talk about JTM make me slightly nauseous sometimes. I'll have to defer to one of you Cincinnati-ians, but the thought of pre-formed "meat" patties being some kind of special gormet treat just doesn't make sense.

Last night, though, went beyond ridiculous. For a solid inning, they were talking about nothing but how wonderful the JTM company was. I must have heard "a family company" 20 times during the inning. Seriously, they process animal parts into patties; it's not like they are curing cancer.

But yeah, I agree when they are not discussing JTM, it's ice cream or barbecue, or whatever.

Thom does seem quite obsessed with Jeff Brantley's eating habits.

I love to hear the COWBOY talk about food. I like the story of him going to Montgomery Inn. He ordered dinner for there then had the waiter do a seperate order to go for him to eat at midnight. :laugh:

I don't want to hijack the thread, but this question doesn't warrant it's own, so here it goes:

I'm fairly new to Reds radio. Why does Marty just leave and let Brantley take over the PBP every couple of innings? I don't get it. What does he do? I like Marty, but why can't he work a full game?

Thom and Chris presently making verbal love to some pizza joint in Newport.

Marty's got enough time in to write his breaks into his contract. I heard him say in an interview that he'll go to the bathroom, get some ice cream, and read a newspaper.

I think sometimes he stays in the booth and just doesn't say much. I've heard him interject a few times when he was supposed to be on break.

Marty has always did that format since he started with the Reds in 1974. Not too many radio play by play announcers do the complete game, if any.

The Reds Play-by-Play guy (95% of the time, Marty) always turns the mic over to the Color guy (75% of the time, Jeff) during the 3rd, 4th, and 7th innings.

Knowing this, you can begin to guess at what inning the game is in when you randomly turn the radio on.

The Color guy also calls the 10th inning, should the game go that far. Back in the day, you would get the occasional "And this one belongs to the Reds" from Joe Nuxhall after a walk-off 10th inning win. I don't think any of the current guys in Joe's seat say that.

Correct me if I am wrong, but at some point last season I remember hearing Jim Kelch say, "And in the words of the Hall of Famer, this one belongs to the Reds."
