    Had to turn it off before I could catch his name. It was the color guy. The play by play announcer was pretty, but his partner ruined the broadcast.

    Nothing endearing about this one. John the Stutterer or Elephant Boy would have been better.

    No need to bring race into it, and it's a cadence, not an impediment.

    Just because you assholes don't speak right doesn't mean it's an impediment

    Good one.

    And no, this was the epitome of an impediment.

    Certainly is, if by legend you mean he raised a roid fueled monster and kept buying his way out of trouble, which allowed him to beat women repeatedly until he eventually hacked the mother of his child to death with a large knife. That, my friend, is a real legend.

    Remy is beloved here. His accent is awful but he is an astute analyst and has a great sense of humor.
