So, it comes as a bit of a shock that people are, all of a sudden, fawning over Johnson for his calling of the NCAA games this past weekend. Of course, some of the people fawning over Johnson (Bill Simmons of ESPN) are known morons with the sports IQ of a retarded gorilla. But still, even morons like Simmons shouldn't gush over a boob like Johnson. Thankfully, one of our very own at SB Nation (Peter Bean at BON), agrees that Johnson is a clueless play-by-play man, and has no business doing high profile sporting events like NFL games or NCAA Men's basketball:
A diving save out of bounds? "The heart of a lion! Diving for a shot at glory! A shot at eternity!"
A nice no-look pass to set up a dunk? "Something tells me this man can play a mean game of pinata! No look?!? NO PROBLEM!!!"
It's positively awful - not only because it's so corny, but because it distracts from the game itself.
