He is better than a lot above.

34Bob Uecker
The best radio announcer ever. He's very funny too. He was clowning around the outfield by catching flyballs with his tuba and then all of a sudden he starts denting the tuba and he gets a fine for it and he's like, not all of it. He's one funny guy and one of the most funniest announcers in sports.

35Cory Provus
I really loved it when Cory Provus called Brewer games alongside Uecker. I miss him.

36Mike "Doc" Emrick
You haven't watched an exciting hockey game if Doc wasn't announcing it. Its like every player he talks about has a section of docs brain dedicated to him. He knows that much about the sport and the players.
