Why I hate Tim McCarver part two
Earlier in the World Series I wrote an article, on my hate of FOX sportscaster, and former St. Louis Cardinals catcher Tim McCarver. This feeling will last with me and the majority of Cardinal Nation for a long time to come but it seems to me in the World Series he is extremley bad at what he does. Not only is he awful at sportscasting in general is constant hate for the Cardinals is growing more and more obvious. In tonight’s game alone he seems to have tremendous excitement when a Rangers player does anything good, but if the Cardinals do something good he just makes it seem like it is lucky and will not effect the outcome of the game. When the Cardinals do something wrong, he has the same excitement that he does when the Rangers excel, yet if the Rangers make a mistake or bad play he seems like it was just an unlucky play that never should have happened.
Now why is it that I could have so much hatred for a “famous”(INFAMOUS) broadcaster who played for the Cardinals for over ten years and was a part of three World Champion Cardinal teams (’61,’64′, ’67)? Well, it is because he acts like he played for the Cubs, Reds, Brewers,and any other Cardinal rival instead of the Cardinals themselves. Now I don’t know what the Cardinals organization did to him but considering he didn’t play under TLR so he wasn’t traded out of spite, and the fact that the Cardinals are known as one of the most respectful teams to previous players and are known as one of the best franchises and has some of the best fans in all of baseball, I highly doubt that they wronged him in any way. So why does he hate the Cardinals so much? Why? Well I don’t care, he will never be considered a Cardinal great, or for that matter a former Cardinal to me. Ryan Theriot will rank higher than him on my list, hell even Adam Kennedy who I hate, more than anyone else will be ranked higher than McCarver. It is a shame to me that we must feel this way about a player that could be considered a Cardinal great, but if you like him you must be a hippie from the sixties lost in the 21st century.
McCarver is simply awful. I never want to hear his voice again, but we will have too because for some reason Fox still has him under contract, and he covers the FN World Series. Which brings me to my next point, why does he have to criticize the Cardinals on NATIONAL TELEVISION??? The world may never know. I hate the man for being such a stupid, idiotic, and a huge asshole, who hates the team that he played so well for and won THREE World Series with.
