I have to agree. Chip Caray is the most annoying commentator of any sport that I've ever heard. He irritates me far more than the Harrelson "put it on the board" commentary, because he is way too cheerleaderish and makes my ears bleed. Steve Stone is an exceptional analyst, but he just can't overcome having to work with such a bufoon. Chip Caray makes me hate the Cubs and want them to lose every game
Rob Faulds (Blue Jays)'s "what do you think about that?" HR call is also very annoying, but people that don't live in Canada have probably never heard him.

Other favourite sportcentre calls:
"He's hit that one into the people" "Bartender!! Gimme a shot of jack!!" (or for back to back to back the other week): "Bartender, a shot of jack! But thats not enough, gimme THREE!!"
hehehe. I also love when a guy hits a double in the alleys, they say "he's shoppin' at the gap".
Some other good calls i have heard are from Tom Brennaman in All star baseball 2004 on PS2:
"that balls gonna make like a baby and head out" "no need to valet, he's gonna park it himself" "Whip up some gravy cuz that ball is MASHED"
Steve Lyons has another nice one:
"The bat bay is gonna have to start his car up to go find that one"
I remember seeing that SportsCenter. I replayed Tivo to hear that again. I do not remember the announcers name either. I think it was on a Saturday or Sunday morning. I thought that was pretty funny!
