A Question I've Been Pondering Myself

The Onion:

Americans Wondering What They Did To Deserve This Much Joe Buck
NEW YORK—According to sports fans across America, the near-ubiquitous presence of play-by-play broadcaster, pregame reporter, and post-game analyst Joe Buck has begun to make them consider if they are being punished for something. "In this life, it's only natural to have to endure a certain amount of Joe Buck, but lately I've been inundated with this pervading informant to the point that I can't get his goddamn buttery-smooth voice out of my head," said avid football viewer and casual baseball fan Thomas Lenz. "I mean, I'm a grown man and can tune it out, but I have a 10-year-old son being who has to live through this. It's just not fair." Joe Buck was unavailable for comment, as he was doing a Borat impression on the set of his latest Fox Sports commercial.
This came up when we were watching the playoffs last week: who has benefited the most from nepotism- President Bush, Joe Buck, or Eli Manning?

I'd say Joe Buck. At least Eli was once good in college. And Bush once owned the Texas Rangers, meaning he at least nominally had to be a Yankee-hater.

The article only would have been better if we had a comment from Bob Costas. He's not a moron like Buck is, and he's enjoyable to listen to.
