Let’s Take a Look at Who Could Be the Next Play by Play for the Washington Football Team

Since this is a blog I can discuss much more than if this was an established media outlet. Well, I had an unconfirmed source say that the Washington football team was looking at a few different candidates for the play-by-play announcing team and no folks, this writer was not mentioned by my unconfirmed source.

This writer does not like fake news; these are unconfirmed names that have been flying around this town.

Here is my take on them.

Chick Hernandez — I always enjoy Chick. Chick seems professional and fun.

Gus Johnson – I have never heard him announce but he has experience in New York’s major market. This writer does listen to the Yes Network. There games are very entertaining. In a previous article, this writer wrote something to the effect that whoever we hire have the gift of gab so I have to take an N/A on Gus.

Kevin Sheehan – Nice style, always been nothing but nice when I call into his show. This writer believes he has been in this media market for quite a while, while still being young. Another interesting choice.

Dan Hellie – Once again similar to Kevin Sheehan, this writer recently heard him on the radio and he sounded quite honest and knowledgeable.

George Johnson — Like Gus Johnson, this writer does not remember hearing. Him televising games. Having listen to his show once it had a very Tony McGee Show feel to it which is by far my favorite show on the Washington football team.

Steve Buckhantz — Having been a Wizards/ Bullets fan for seasons, Buckhantz is idolized. This writer likes immensely his style and like Buckhanz has sit through more blowout then I think end broadcaster outside of the Red Sox or Chicago Cubs. Buckhanz has the gift of gab and is fun.

How would this writer decide? Well, of course this writer wants that call from Washington football broadcasting saying we are pulling a stunt and you, Marc Lande, is our announcer.

But outside of that and the moon being of cheese, this writer feels that a team should be reviewing as many radio broadcast teams as possible to find a really entertaining voice. Remember Michael came from Westwood One this writer believes or at least another organization.
