to our Pacers and Fever arena announcers so they can buy new material and make the games a little bit more exciting if not just be muted. What is up with the "Stephen Jackson... homerun!!!" crap when any of our players hit a 3?!?! I get it, but it's irrating and corny as hell. We don't even have an MLB franchise. And what about the "Fever basketball!!!" (ripped off and said in the same tone but decaffienated as the Pistons' Deee-troit basketball)
Cmon' you gotta be kidding me!!! I don't know about you guys but I just can't stand it- especially when the Pacers are losing. :woot::woot::woot:

Reb is my hero. Going to a game wouldn't be the same IMO w/o him. I think it was last year or 2 years ago they had some other guy doing a couple of games, and he was horrible!!

I didn't say I wanted him to be replaced. I just think he needs new material- especially with the home run crap.

Homerun is corny, and lifting a term from another sport is weak, but we're stuck with it. Reb IS pretty good with most of his shtick compared to most of the rest of the league's circus ringmasters.
