The Top 50 Sportscasters

The American Sports Association has compiled a list of what it believes are the top 50 sports broadcasters of all time. I’ll have more comments on this list later, but the first thing that’s funny is that Bill Walton, the chair of the ASA (which is funny in itself), somehow places 39th all time. Maybe that’s just for the way he says “H-O-R-R-R-R-R-R-I-B-L-E”, I don’t know.

Anyway, here’s the list:

1. Vin Scully
2. Mel Allen
3. Red Barber
4. Curt Gowdy
5. Howard Cosell
6. Bob Costas
