I know the "George Grande sucks" threads are all too common here, he's taken plenty of heat from Reds fans (me included) for years. Let's be honest, he deserved it.
Lately, maybe just the last two wins, I've noticed something different about Grande. He's still using his "smiling scoreboard" and "yessiree!!!" cliches, but he's also shown a lot more insight into games than I've ever witnessed. The last two wins have actually been pretty entertaining.
1. Actually called a couple good plays like a broadcaster instead of screaming "HE GOT IT!" or "WHOA!!" in a shrill cracking voice
2. Given a pretty accurate analysis after tonight's/last night's win, and made some valid statements about why we won
It may be he's worried about his job, with Thom waiting to take over... but I think George has improved a bit as a broadcaster.
