Mmmmm, I would say when you find 90% of something annoying, it might be time to ask yourself why you find that particular thing annoying. 'Cuz maybe it's just intrinsically annoying, or maybe it is a double standard on your part.
Annoying in sports announcing:
1. Just plain bad, no chops to call a game in any role and has no future in getting better.
2. Adds too much hype to a game for no reason, Buck Martinez SCREAMS!!!! for every can of corn as if its a 500 foot tater to win the World Series. Eff him totally.
3. Has read a cuecard to prepare for the game and doesn't know the game in heart or mind, painfully obvious. This can be okay for sports which nobody really knows anything, like the Big Ten outdoor track and field championships, or WNBA games.
