Oh that remote control and why Tom Hart?!!

December 30, 2015

Maybe the great entertainer Sid Caesar envisioned one like ESPN announcer Tom Hart, when he denounced the use of the television remote control.

I was enjoying the powerful performances of Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, George Segal and Sandy Dennis in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” on TCM.

Next Frank Sinatra singing as part of a 1969 special.

However, the darn remote to ESPN and twice on one Texas A&M failed possession in the second quarter, Hart screamed an A&M receiver had made a reception. Then he took his time telling us what we knew, it was not a reception.

Oh that remote! Really oh that all powerful ESPN and its penchant for hiring those like Tom Hart, who simply put, has a long way to go to even resemble an announcer.

Yet those paychecks he deposits are real.
