Re: Gus Johnson
I have a theory. As soon as an announcer becomes famous for anything other than accuracy, they become a caricature of themselves and it stops being cool and starts being annoying.
If you watch a Dick Vitale broadcast from the early 80's, you'd be stunned at how knowledgeable he truly is. Same with John Madden. Same with Gus Johnson.
I liked the excitement from Gus, but as soon as he became known for it, it was like he was going crazy for every little thing.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
