My mild dislike for Jim Nantz is quickly developing into full-fledged hatred. Not only will he be co-hosting the "Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials 2007" with the lovely and talented Daisy Fuentes (#24 on the KD Dream-Mistress List), but he recently agreed with the two-week hiatus between Championship Sunday and the Super Bowl.
“As a fan, I used to hate the two-week lead-in,” CBS play-by-play man Jim Nantz said in a teleconference call Tuesday. “But now, I don’t really see anyway around it. It seems everyone needs that extra week to prepare for everything that goes into the game."
Do you need an extra week? I sure as hell don't. I think I've heard enough of how much Manning and Urlacher respect each other. Nantz is a Fred Couples wannabe who funds his golf habit by kowtowing to Billy Packer and every network executive that crosses his path. Can we please have Vern Lundquist and Bill Raftery call the Final Four this year? Wouldn't you love to hear "Sammy Mejia with the kissss!" rather than "Great recognition of the zone by Coach K, don't you think Billy?" -KD
