Actor Rainn Wilson recently kidnapped Blake Griffin, put him in the back of a van and interviewed him. The results were outstanding. (Thanks to Charlos Fox, of San Luis Obispo, Calif., for the link.)
This Is Not ProfessionalFact: All local announcers are homers. It doesn't matter if it's TV or radio, local announcers root for the home team. Sure, some folks like White Sox TV guy Ken "Hawk" Harrelson and Yankees radio guy John Sterling are way over the top, but the bottom line is "local = homer." However, when local announcers cross over to do a national game, you'd think they put the homerism away for a few hours. That wasn't the case Saturday, when Phillies broadcaster Tom McCarthy called the Philadelphia-San Francisco game for Fox. Listen to the depression in McCarthy's voice when Matt Cain homered off Cole Hamels and then listen to him go nuts when Hamels returned the favor and homered off Cain.
