I find that the weirdest thing ever. Because he has EXTREME bias when commentating, however, he does not when he talks about his son. It's the only time he doesn't. He brings more bias to his announcing than any announcer I have seen in any sport. But you are right... not with his son. weird.
Like was said, you probably can't afford to be biased like that. I mean, what can they say when you are just biased towards a team for no particular reason, but when its your own son, he would receive so much flak for it, it wouldn't even be worth it.
