Announcer on the American cable TV network ESPN. Often the anchor for the late night sport wrap-up show, SportsCenter.

The king of smart alec remarks with deadpan expression. An example (spoken in monotone voice, with blank face):

"Ripkin swings... It's a long drive to left field; nobody can catch it. Well, the guy in fourth row can catch it, but that doesn't count. So, it's a home run anyway and the Orioles get a run out of that."

For those of who have watched talking heads go nuts over small plays in small games for years, this guy is a hoot. I will watch him even if he is only reporting on lacrosse. Think Dennis Miller on sedatives. A lot of sedatives.
