Phil Simms, CBS Sports’ top pro football analyst, has a new book out.
I just ordered it ($16.97 at amazon).
Simms, who works with play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz, has become my favorite NFL commentator.
He’s insightful, smart, funny as heck, and has a really pleasant voice, which he improved in the off-season by losing some of his native Kentucky (he attended Morehead State) twang.
My next favorite broadcast team is Joe Buck, Cris Collinsworth, and Troy Aikman on Fox.
They’re followed by Joe Theisman, Paul McGuire, and Mike Patrick on ESPN.
John Madden and Al Michaels on ABC?
Madden’s gotten kind of annoying, his folksy manner no longer wearing so well, over the years.
