Joe "Balls Deep" Buck is one of the most highly respected and high-profile sports announcers working today and, according to one plucky Midwesterner we all know, is also a true gentlemen when introduced to raisin-filled sports bloggers. Buck's voice is always a welcome addition, especially to baseball games, which seem a little more meaningful whenever he calls them. Plus, he gracefully overcompensates for the painful meanderings of Tim McCarver, who sometimes calls games like he's been huffing Pine-Sol. And there has yet to be a baseball game where a player has irked him while pantomiming a moon toward hostile fans.
