10/13 @ Nasville (7:30PM CT) - Hopes meet reality

Post by Troy McClure »

This one is an ESPN+/Hulu game. Yes, the worst play by play person in all of pro sports is doing the game.
I got a ranch in downtown Dallas/I buy diamonds by the ton/Chase cuties in my Cadillac/Drill oil wells just for fun/But when it comes to boots, I need a deal/That will fit me right, toe to heel/So I get my boots at Western Warehouse.

There's like 20 guys who meet that description so you're gonna have to narrow it down.

It's interesting to see these lines and realize how much has been flushed out of the lower lines.

Defensive Dmen paired with offensive ones, Hakanpää to cover Suter's ass; I think I like that.

Marchment seems like he may actually be good? I don't know. I signed up for the Hulu / Disney+ / ESPN+ bundle, since it will actually save me money if I have to add ESPN.

I have good feelings about that third line.

I thought you meant Emrick. I do feel bad for her with all the online hate she's received. That can't be easy to endure

Yeah, the sexist stuff isn’t good, but she truly is as bad as any high school play by play you hear the guys make fun of on the Ticket. The other women ESPN hired to work games do fine jobs. Hextall, on the other hand, sounds like someone with very little experience winging it because …. well … she had very little experience when handed the job. Her play by play experience was a coupe of years of calling a few women’s tournaments.

I’m too lazy to go find it, but one woman in sports media took some heat last year when she talked about how bad Hextall is at it and how it hurt other women trying to break into the profession.

Marchment already on pace to continue breaking the fancy stat WAR models.

The ESPN+ feed is pretty shitty. The audio mix is terrible.

Are the Chiefs-Raiders refs officiating? Trenin was already falling.

Just to clarify, for the entire anthem, and the first 3
minutes of the game, my camera angle was Leah Hextall’s literal back, up in a press box.

She’s just especially bad. During that stretch without a whistle she kinda stopped calling anything like she lost focus or got tired.

Marchment’s physical play is going to make him a fan favorite.
