"Palmer hands off to Rudi...(indecipherable yelling here)...10...5...Touchdown!"
His Channel 12 sportscasts are even worse.
Lapham is pretty awful, too. The thing that bothers me the most about them both is that they are such homers. Samp was never that way; not as edgy as Marty B., but he let fans generate their own enthusiasm.
Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.
