Really? This guy?
First Stuart Scott, now Jim Nantz?
Has Allen & Ginter found my private diary list of the sports broadcasters that I wish had pursued botany instead of broadcasting? If Chris Berman, Joe Buck and Michael Kay appear in future A&G issues, then I'll know the spies have infiltrated the nest and found my voodoo dolls.
How difficult is it to put Vin Scully on a card?
Is he rebuffing your advances? Then try harder. Don't put the most irritating, cloying, sycophant in broadcasting on cardboard instead.
Here, if Scully is too difficult for you to handle, try one of these guys:
I know some of these guys have appeared in other sets. But A&G is for champions like the folks listed above, not people whose goal is to see how many platitudes they can fit into one broadcast.
I never thought I'd say it, but Howard Cosell needs to be on a card.
He would tell you what he thought of some of these guys who are appearing in A&G. With much bigger words than I can use.
