FOX broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are not everyone's cup of tea, especially with our beloved Packers. So a couple local fans decided to be the home-crowd voice in Riverwest this Sunday, the cheeseheads' cup of Schlitz, for Green Bay's NFC Championship game against Atlanta.
Starting at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Turner Hall will host a free viewing party of the NFC Championship Game, complete with the game projected on a big movie screen and - thank the heavens - synced up to 620 WTMJ's radio play-by-play broadcast.
I don't entirely know what we're watching here, but I know it's funny and extremely inappropriate.
In episode 13 of The Postgame Tailgate podcast, Jimmy Carlton and Matt Mueller discuss the Packers' playoff win over the Giants, look ahead to Dallas and argue that Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are actually good. Then, they recap the Golden Globes. Also, tune in for OnMilwaukee radio jingles from 1999!
I've taken some unpopular stands in my time and distributed my share of stupid takes, especially regarding the Packers. But this is the ultimate detestable Take Hill on which I will die: broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are not bad, anti-Packer morons. In fact, they are good. Here's why.
A petition has been created to have Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker replace FOX's Joe Buck for the matchup between the long-suffering Cleveland Indians and the even longer-suffering Chicago Cubs. More than 15,000 baseball fans had signed it on Change.org, as of Monday morning.
Two words that have been repeated over and over the last week have been "never forget." It has become the mantra of the attacks on America that took place now, believe it or not, more than 10 years ago. But here's the thing: That's not a danger. None of us could ever forget where we were or what we were doing when we heard the news.
Packers receiver Ruvell Martin caught two touchdown passes last week and all anybody wanted to ask him about was the seemingly illegal contact that took place during his Lambeau Leap.
Sometimes, things that are obvious need to be said. OMC national sports columnist Steve Czaban takes that duty very seriously this week.
Play by play announcers only get noticed when they screw up. Mike Tirico (center) doesn't do that often and OMC national sports columnist Steve Czaban sees him emerging as a star on Monday night.
Any Packers fan still upset at Randy Moss and his "Moon Over Lambeau" stunt can take solace in this simple fact. Moss is a loser. Always has been, always will be. He's a player who will be judged as having been one of the most cancerous forces in the NFL.
