He could make anything sound boring. He is truely one of the worst, ever, IMO.

On Joe Buck, when it comes to announcing sports and wrestling, one of the things to do is "sell a moment." You know, freak out, show some passion and intensity and connection to the product. The opposite of this is "no selling." Joe Buck no-sells everything because he is a robot. All he does for anything is to raise his voice so that people can hear him. That is it.

World Series extra inning walk off homer? Manning-to-Tyree? Completely no sells it.

MANNING TO TYREE. THE PASS IS CAUGHT. I AM A ROBOT.

The one time he showed emotions, the emotions of shame and distress, was when the Vikings were embarrassing the Packers in the playoffs. This is because the Joe Buck model robot is manufactured and programmed in Wisconsin.

congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals for winning the 2011 World Series!
A great series, although nothing like the 1991 WS.
Just an unbeliavable job by a true team that came from nowhere to win it all.
