The name game

By Samuel Goldman/[email protected]

When you break it down sports are a name game. I pity the announcers that are faced with the tall task of pronouncing the daunting last names of foreign athletes. The San Antonio Spurs broadcast team is dependent on head coach Greg Popovich’s unconventional bench strategy. The rest of the league secretly hopes for a major injury. I guarantee you the Fox Sports North announcers discussed Minnesota Timberwolves’ Nikola Pekovic’s ankle injury this season in their morning meeting. Discussing celebratory events over coffee is an American tradition. Injuries to the following three players would give broadcasters the opportunity to participate.
