Comment of the Day: Sports-Talk Radio Shows
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We listed all the local sports-talk shows on 610 and 790, ranking them worst to first.

Shockingly, some readers disagreed.
610 in general is just terrible. Vaderhomer was annoying, but I have to admit i don't like his play by play either, so clearly I just don't care for him (ROCK AND ROLL!!! shut up), Lopez does what you say with baiting things and sometimes thinks his dirty old man comments make him relevant. MaD radio is terrible, a lot of time spent trying with the Meltz downs and talking about trying to get Meltzer a date, he's a lot younger than Davies, etc. Which I hate to say age makes a difference, but it does when some of these guys were 5 when the Rockets were in the Championships, even younger during the Oilers days and not even alive during the 86 Stros/ Dome days. Josh Innes is the absolute worst. Terrible commenting, not knowledgeable, and more of an Opie and Anthony type than a sport talk host. Not to mention their whole "You Found It" Spiel was taken directly from Jim Rome. Agreed completely on The Odd Couple. Sean can be pretty good, Barry has a lot of good memories, but his presentation of them is awful. It sounds like Old Man Winter got a talk show and instead of making stories interesting, he makes them sound like preaching about how we all know less. Palillo, The Big Show, Travis Rodgers, Sean and John. The best 4 shows in my opinion.
