After all the talk about our favorite game announcers, here's a funny article by Bill Simmons about being a color guy for two WCC games this year (USF-Pepp and SD-SMC):

I'd like to hear from people that actually listened to these games - especially fans of the above 4 WCC teams.

When he is not going all Boston on us, he is a great read. His tongue in cheek counting of 250 fans at the game did anger a few WCC schools.

Does anyone miss the Water Cooler from ESPN's Page 2?

There's a great show on Fox Soccer Channel call "Premier League Fan Zone." They show an EPL game from the previous weekend, with commentary provided by one fan from each team. It's just listening to a couple of fans giving each other a hard time about their team, celebrating good plays, ranting about bad calls, ripping and/or praising players. It's lots of fun. ESPN should try it with a few college games...

Bill Raftery is always my favorite color guy.... although Craig Ehlo comes in a close second :rolleyes:

Simmons has done a running diary of the NBA draft for a few years-they are really really funny.
