Let me make this clear up front: I want to like Panger and his contributions to Blues broadcasts. I really do. In fact, in some situations I do like Panger's work. Those situations, however, are when he is working on a national broadcast. It isn't that he is doing anything different to annoy me when he is calling a Blues game. No, what annoys me as A Blues fan is he calls them exactly the same as national broadcasts. Dammit, I don't want an "objective" voice on my home broadcasts. I want someone who bleeds blue along with the fans. Now, that doesn't mean being a whacked out homer (ala the Chicago Blackhawks broadcast crew who take the homer thing to absurd lengths), but I'm constantly reminded watching Blues telecasts that Pang isn't really one of us.
What think you?
