I have seen Col. Bob at his best and at his worst and last night was not
=It was far from his worst though.=
I guess I have to defend him by saying that he was called in at the last
moment to sub for Albert. He was not able to attend the press interviews
with the fighters the day before, so overall he did okay.
The only obvious lie i heard the colonel say was that he works for
Showtime's overseas broadcasts
=Bob has never been one to hesitate the b.s.=
-- b.s., he works for Kingvision and is Don's little ***!
=I cant argue with that, even if it is a bit harsh of a statement, I
aint argueing with ya=
Have you ever had the his pleasure of hearing him calling a fight with
Carl King? Oh God!
=I second that. Colonal Bob is at his WORST when he's calling fights on
the DirecTV shows.
I usually dont complain too much about those cards, because I'm just
happy to have boxing on TV at all. But on alot of those DirecTV shows,
Bob gets SOOOO annoying to listen to. He talks a little bit too much (I
think the guy likes the sound of his own voice) and he sometimes calls
fights as if he thinks the people watching at home are idiots and dont
know shit about boxing. I take that a little bit as a dis, 'cause Bob
aint no ***ing rocket scientist himself. But last night I was
pleasantly surprised by how listenable the Colonal was (overall) last
night. He worked really well with the Showtime crew.=
I once say Col. Bob put down the mike, get up and scream advice to Larry
Donald in the ring!
=I remember that. That was VERY unprofessional of Bob. But it wasnt like
he was gonna get in trouble for it. And it's often Donald's fights that
stink out those DirecTV cards!=
However, ask yourself this -- would you have rather of had the normal
I would not.
=Agreed. Actually, I was thinking that Showtime should replace Albert
with Sheridan. He works pretty well with Czyz and Pacheco, and I dont
think that Sheridan has ever worked with Czyz and Pacheco in the past,
that I can remember.
I dont have anything against Albert, but I think replacing him with
Sheridan would be an upgrade. You gotta admit that the Showtime crew
with Albert is pretty lame. No chemistry with this team IMO.=
