Apparently, We're Not The Only Ones That Want To Set Fire To Joe Buck And Not P155 On Him To Put It Out
Arguably the worst move by any football-related organization this past offseason involved FOX Network's play-by-play savant Joe Buck. Buck was tapped to host that network's pre-game studio show, a job that he has been fucking up big time for the past two weekends.
What is actually happening FOX is sending the pregame studio to Buck, following him to whatever game he's calling that day. So it wasn't bad enough that we had to listen to Buck call the entire game, now we have to listen to him for another hour beforehand?
Buck reminds me of Kent from Real Genius, which would be forgiveable if he wasn't such a pompous ass to boot. Anyway, some of the reviews are coming in, and they're not really favorable:
[FOX's pre-game show] has basically become an hour of Joe Buck struggling to prove he's a fun guy and the rest of the panel trying to drown out the crowd.

When pregame partner Jimmie Johnson said the Bengals’ Robert Geathers was pushed (discussing the Trent Green hit from Week 1; you know where I stand on this) Buck [gave] Johnson a dismissive wave of the hand and a “yeah, whatever.”

Nobody would have blamed FOX if they had scraped the failed Joe Buck experience. It's not good. The problem is Buck himself. Not to say that Joe Buck has no personality, but his father's dead corpse has more charisma. The only thing saving FOX is that Shannon Sharpe is busy butchering the English language over on CBS.

[Joe Buck] raped all of my babies. I was just washing them off.

Being buried in popcorn would be too good for this asshole.
