Kevin Harlan's Epic Radio Call of Monday Night Football Interloper: Last night, Kevin Harlan of Westwood One had more fun on the radio call of an idiot who ran onto the field during play of Niners/Rams than he did the rest of the game.

The only thing more painful than the televised game was having to endure Berman listening to himself talk while missing a good portion of what was taking place on the field.

Sure wish I had listened to the Westwood One audio feed and will probably do so for any future Berman dates.

I always liked Kevin Harlan. Soundwise, he sort of comes from the Charlie Jones-Verne Lundquist spectrum, which I'm comfortable with.

It's sinful that a skilled, seasoned vet like Harlan is relegated to radio calls while Berman, the human tablecloth, gets the TV gigs.

"You gotta night in the clink coming up!!" I can't stop laughing. I love it.

Oh, and yeah, Kevin Harlan has kept me in my car in my driveway listening to football games. Westwood One is lucking to have him.

Ditto. Harlan and Esiason are the number 1 NFL broadcast team in my books.

Is that a typo, or were you trying to say that WW1 is lucking fucky to have him?

I meant "lucky," but I like the new word of "lucking" which means...yeah...effing lucky.

I figured that NoMich was using a computer with auto correct that he borrowed from the office of President Duterte.

Such a computer would change a common everyday phrase like "I shit and you wave" to "I spit on your grave".
