Previously when I heard sports announcers, I thought it was just that they were talking louder, but clearly much more is going on than that.

When listening to him, I get the same sensation as when I hear the Mid-Atlantic accent from the 1930s-50s. Somethings “off” but I can’t exactly determine what. Is Sports Announcer a variant of Mid-Atlantic?

Getting a little bit of a Brockmire vibe (audio possibly unsafe for work).

I don’t care how good his voice is - vertical videos are just another glimpse into the abyss.
