Erin Andrews Is Aware Of The AOL-AA Worst Announcers Bracket, You Should Be Too!

Friday, November 09, 2007


Recently, Extra Mustard got to speak with Erin Andrews about her love for their site, but more importantly the fact that she's been alluded to AOL's Best and Worst Announcer Brackets that AA took part in putting together.

SI.com: So we were thrilled to see you like Extra Mustard, especially since you're one of our go-to "celebrities" who we can always count on to generate lots of hits.

Andrews: My girlfriend and I always go to it. She religiously goes to it and I started going to it because it always has good scoops on the boys and a lot of people in sports. My girlfriend sent me a link to Hot Clicks the other day because you had an item about a contest on sideline reporters. She said I better hope I get some votes.
So if EA's taking a gander so should you. Why? Not because she's graced the webpage's presence, but because I honestly couldn't be more disappointed in the voting. Take a look at some of these matchups......

Okay, I can understand that maybe Sal Masekela is a bit more annoying than Jim Gray, but Joe Morgan and Chris Berman getting knocked out in the first round?!?! You people are crazy. I want you each to email me personally and tell me why you like Joe Morgan. I will then post your responses in and let the AA readers pick you apart like vultures.

Reggie Miller worse than Joe Morgan......Who are these people?!?!

If Reggie Miller gets more votes, wouldn't he get knocked out?
So, how would Joe Morgan get knocked out then.
You seem to contradict yourself in your own post.
Chris Berman is 50% behind Magic Johnson. How could he get knocked out?
Are you working with "new math".

Do you not understand how brackets and percentages work Anon? You are voting for the Worst....if Reggie Miller gets more votes....people are saying he's worse than Joe Morgan.

THUS.....knocking him out of the tournament.

It's not that hard really.

I suspect the first poster is not the only person confused about the voting process, judging by the results.

I'm guessing the first anon is a Tim McCarver fan. This tournament is pathetic.

I agree with Anon2; I think a lot of people think they're knocking out the guy they're voting for.

AA -- your post says "Joe Morgan and Chris Berman getting knocked out in the first round?"
NEITHER is leading in the voting.
How are they going to get knocked out?
"Do you not understand how brackets and percentages work?"
It's obvious you don't proof-read.

My girlfriend and I always go to it.

Douchebag....you are so clueless. The person who's worse goes onto the next round! Reggie Miller has more votes and would continue onto the second round thus knocking Berman out. It's to find who's the worst announcer.

How is this so hard for everyone to figure out?

Joe Morgan is better because he is black. Black is better. End of story.

Joe Morgan tried back in the 60's when he as with the Astros to become the worst announcer ever, he had it as a goal. See, if you are a bad announcer, you can also be a bad announcer, but maybe not the worst announcer, but a bad one. You have to take a lot of practice to get worse at it. If you practice a lot, say, once or maybe twice a day, maybe three times, you can become worse at it. It all depends on your intelligence when approaching announcing with the proper respect.

Is this confirmation you will be doing your own bracket Awful?

Yes Brett....I think we need to really explain things ahead of time too.

Nov 9, 2007, 4:25:00 PM  

I think the problem here is that most people usually vote for who they think is better, so maybe everyone is confused.

Or maybe its only idiots that post anonymously.

The question right above the 2 choices is "Which ---- is worse?" How hard is that?

When have you ever seen a bracket where the team/person with the lower pts/wins/votes moves on?

LOL at Mike Patrick - he looks like a vampire in his picture. Now that I think of it, Albert and Stockton look pretty ghoulish too.

Berman is not a terrible studio host. He's too loud and overbearing for baseball play-by-play, although I think his obvious passion for the game, knowledge and reverent respect for its history should be appreciated even if he isn't cut out for the job. His schtick is old, but he is more than a passable studio host for NFL related shows.

Berman > Magic, no doubt about that.

Joe Morgan, on the other hand, has only one possible peer as a premier [awful] baseball analyst: Tim McCarver. How two former players could be so unbearably awful in analysing their game is beyond me. McCarver, once upon a time, was actually bearable. Morgan has never been. Reading the folks at FJM tear his idiocy apart is a daily treat. He deserves to win the whole shebang with Timmo a close runner up.

As far as studio hosts, Berman and the rest of this field are shooting stars compared to one Ms. Zelasko, FOX's own blonde abominable.

I would like to clear things up for the 1st and 3rd anon...

I had my friends at Elias check this out...more announcers move on in the Worst Announcer bracket if they received the most votes, than if they didn't receive the most votes.

It goes against common conventional logic, and seems to confirm AA's point.
