Open "I Hate Joe Buck and Fox Sports" Thread

I probably shouldn't be the one starting this discussion, since I only caught the last two innings of the All-Star Game last night (played softball in GG Park instead; yeah, looks like I missed a wild game!). And yet, even in those two innings, listening to Joe Buck announce baseball was so excrutiating that I couldn't imagine what those of you who suffered with him for all 15 innings felt.

To quote jponry about the final play: "Could Buck’s call of that have been any more monotone and uncaring?" (I thank the broadcasting gods Joe Buck was not the guy calling the Federer-Nadal final at Wimbledon.) Seriously, how can anyone in Major League Baseball not named Bud Selig be anything but completely embarrassed that this douchebag is the lead announcer for their sport when he shows no apparent enthusiasm for it, let alone his inability to pronounce the names of players like, say, the American League ERA leader who just happens to play in a part of the country very far from Boston and New York?

Criticisms of Buck and Fox Sports get tossed around here all the time, but I feel it's long overdue we consolidate our hatred towards these asshats into one, single thread that we can save for posterity and show to our grandchildren. Consider this the McCoven's Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Besides, it's a slow off-day.
