12:30 PM Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is contesting a $7,000 federal fine after eight acrobats were injured during a hair-hanging stunt at a performance in Providence, Rhode Island last May.
Dan Steinberg of DC SPORTS BOG has an audio-video sync’d up look at Georgetown radio announcer Rich Chvotkin as he straps on the pom-poms in a Hoya victory over Villanova.
Some of you may know that we were a longtime radio PBP guy for baseball, hockey and basketball, so seeing an announcer so blatantly cheer for the team he broadcasts pains us. But since virtually every play-by-play man in the business is now nothing more than a bought-off mouthpiece for the home team, we’re becoming more and more immune to the behavior.
Be aware that cheerleading is now a prerequisite if you plan to try to brave the industry’s climes.
