havlicek stole the ball it's all over


30Ray Warren

31Gary Cohen

32Cris Collinsworth
He is better than a lot above.

33Bob 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.

34Cory Provus
I really loved it when Cory Provus called Brewer games alongside Uecker. I miss him.

35Mike "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.
The best hockey announcer, period!

One of the best college football analysts.

38Verne Lundquist

One of the best radio football announcers. I enjoy "And there is your dagger! " I met him once.

43Larry McCarren
One of the best radio analysts. He calls Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, Bert and Ernie, which is pretty funny.

44John Madden

45Joe Block
He's pretty good with Bob Uecker. Uecker would crack Provus up.

46Gary Danielson

He is very intelligent.
