not to hijack the focus of the article, which I think was very fair to Larry, but does Wes Durham not consider himself to be a homer?Thirty seconds of listening to Wes screech out a routine 3 yard Tech gain on second and 7 like he was calling the invasion of Normandy is enough to make you want to jam a screwdriver into your own eardrums. Frankly, I have no problem with Wes being a Tech homer; it would be typical of Tech people for him to consider himself a velvet throated bystander in the Vin Scully doing NFL games mode. He's more like the great googly moogly guy that used to do the Marietta Dodge tv ads a few years ago; if his frenzied screams reached any higher pitch, it would probably sterilize cockroaches.
RE: homerismThe Braves guys are also homers and I enjoy listening to them, not so much the White Sox crew which a homers, but also lame.If you are working for ESPN/ABC/CBS, I don't think you should be a homer (ahem, Holtz), but if you are the voice of the Bulldogs' Radio Network, sure, it should be "us" and "them".
Like I said before, I like Durham.
Did I just completely miss what was going on with Gilberry and why he is turd-worthy?
