In the wide world of sports there are thousands of sports announcers. We all have the one’s that we love, but we all have the one’s that we absolutely despise. Here is a list of the top five sports announcers that should probably take up a new career:
Merril Hoge has to be included in this list for one reason and one reason only…his ties. Seriously, you don’t need a quadruple windsor knot Merril. Relax. Keep analyzing squash and not football.

Cris Collinsworth has one of the most annoying voices in all of sports. He sounds like he just smoked about 10 packs of cigarettes and is trying out win the starring role in a new action movie. Maybe he should just quit his job and become an actor. Definitely not a comic actor though, because his jokes are terrible.

Thankfully, Jon Gruden only covers football. If Gruden covered any other sports in addition to football, he would be a lot higher on this list. Probably at number 2. He says the most obvious stuff. Gruden is like a younger John Madden. Gruden says some things that make you say, “Wow…is this guy serious?” The guy even had Michelle Obama mistaken for ESPN’s Lisa Salters. Are you serious?

Joe Buck is Joe Buck. This is self explanatory. The guy’s analogies are terrible. “And it will give you the chills here in Chicago, and the chills have nothing to do with the temperature.” One of the dumbest things I have ever heard. Buck also shows no effort he does. It’s sad because he knows that he doesn’t even need to try to be good at what he does because of his father, Jack Buck’s legacy. Not to mention, Buck complains about the length of baseball games he announces. Why in the world are you complaining Joe Buck? I would love to be able to travel around the country and visit every ballpark in America for free, talk baseball and get paid for it. If you don’t like your job, take up a new one.

Easily the most annoying announcer is Chris Berman. His signature quotes are ridiculous. “Back, Back, Back, Back…Gone!” Is it just me or is that extremely annoying during the MLB Home Run Derby? I can deal without the obnoxious and monotonous yelling. “He…Could…Go…All…The…Way!” I think we know he is going to score Berman. The Swami nickname stems from his prediction making every week. I would rather get my predictions from the orangutan that picks the NCAA men’s basketball tournament and the Super Bowl winner every year. His arrogance takes the cake. I have seen many articles where people talk about how stuck up and arrogant he is. This video will give you just a little preview. Congratulations Chris Berman, you are officially the most annoying sports announcer in the world! “Whoop!”
