    For me it's about "screen presence", or lack thereof. No real personality, no real sports knowledge. I honestly think he only has a job in sports announcing because of his last name.

    You'd really have to listen to him call a baseball or football game to get the full picture. I'd say 95% of the posters in NFL chat actively dislike him.

    Ok, so it's not like Doctor "I'm a horrible person and huckster" Oz.

    Nah :lol:. I have no idea what Joe Buck might really be like as a person, but I hope not that bad.

    Joe Buck is so vain that he nearly lost his voice, permanently, because he was so hooked on getting hair plugs every year. :lol:

    If they care at all about what people want, they would skip Joe Buck and go straight to LeVar.

    My sister in law's brother was his roommate in collage. From the stories he's told, Joe Buck was a big douche even then. No one in the dorm liked him.

    Long as LeVar gets his chance. With the online petition he's got circulating, he rates that much.

    Jeopardy announced the remainder of the guest host schedule, and LeVar will have his stint (July 26-30) before Joe Buck (August 9-13).

    He's just so...painful to listen to. He's not as bad as his previous cohost of the baseball playoffs, Tim McCarver, but he's awful in his own right.

    FINALLY.

    Robin Roberts is a good choice, too.

    Bleah.

    Maybe they'll realize Buck is just awful and give what the people want already.

    Yeah, I'm really happy to see LeVar in the list. And Miyam Bialik is another great choice.

    Aaron Rodgers had an extra (fictional) hosting appearance during last night's episode of The Conners. We didn't see much of his hosting capabilities because it was mostly focused on Jackie's, um, chaotic turn as a contestant. :lol:

    Looking through the schedule I didn't realize Mayim Bialik was an actual neuroscientist.

    An anti-vaxxer neuroscientist, at that. (Yeah, she's backtracked some over the past few years, but she resisted getting her kids vaccinated on time and has complained about schools requiring vaccinations in order to attend. Has also said the anti-vaxx movement "has some good points.')
