Week 15 Thursday Night Football: NO GUMBEL!!

Postby beanoX3 » Tue Dec 11, 2007 10:56 pm

From Rotoworld
Bryant Gumbel will miss the NFL Network's Thursday night broadcast with a sore throat.
Rejoice, football fans, rejoice! Tom Hammond will replace Gumbel in a move that rivals Kyle Orton's ascension to starter as the most exciting news of the week.

Awesome news. I don't know who this Hammond guy is, but he can't be any worse than Gumbel. ;-D :-b
The cake is a lie.

This is great news. I usually just mute the game when he is calling it. What a moron.

If only they'd replace him with his brother. God, I can't stand listening to Bryant Gumbel.

he can't get the names right, last season he couldn't get the score right. The freaking score! We'll see if this hammond guy can get the names right, if not, it might be the spotter who is somewhat at fault. Gumbel has no football knowledge. Marion Jones up the middle!
ADMIN edit: please note that the overall sig limit is 12k - thanks!

That's just great. Now I have to learn how to turn my volume back up.
And not a moment too soon, people are starting to look odd at me when they want to turn the sound off and I say "Just hit Gumbel"

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
