I will give you just one of Kim’s famous questions that a 2 yr old would ask his Father. Just about every game where there was a walk off Home Run or a walk off base hit by someone on the Yankees, Kim would run on the field and ask her brilliant question.
“Well you got that big Walk off Home Run to win the game. How did you do that?”
Easy Kim I swung the F ing Bat and the ball went over the fence.
She must have asked that same dumb childish ridiculous question a hundred times. How did you do that?
And spending the 3rd inning of a game and listening to Kim with her motor mouth going on like she was being cranked up from behind will be a blessing not to see and hear anymore.
Who cares if she asked dumb questions? Do you think ball players are going to launch into some billiant exposé?
Well if it doesn’t bother you if you are watching a Major League Baseball Game played by Men and you have no problem listening to dumb childish annoying questions by someone that talk’s non stop for the entire 3rd inning of a baseball game, that’s your right.
I suggest you turn on the TV and Watch the Nickelodeon Channel instead of the Yes Channel, and you will get more of Kim Jones Talk regarding a Baseball Game, but this time it will be the little kids talking about the Midget Little League.
You hit the nail on the head with your post regarding childish commentaries by co called "professional" announcers. TV has been dumbing down its programming for decades, sports is no exception. I'm sure some suit in YES thought hiring an "attractive" female announcer to cover essentially all male sporting events would boost ratings with let's see... what demographic group? Ah yes 12 year old males. Forget the journalism it does not bring to the table, everything is based on ratings or what these suits perceive as key marketing groups. Meanwhile we grown ups can long for the days of Frank Messer and Bill White.
And just to show you I am not just railing against Kim Jones and her ilk, those overgrown frat boys on MLB network make me hit the mute button every time. How much giggling and horseplay can an intelligent fan be expected to put up with in a one hour format? Poor Jon Heyman looks like the class nerd trying to keep up with the cool boys in class LOL. At least Kim Jones has a dignity about her.
But as I posted earlier, bring on Meredith Marakovits, at least see's hot!
"Joe, the team was down three runs in the 6th inning but fought their way back and won in the bottom of the 9th. What does it say about this team that they never give up?"
"We have a great bunch of guys here, and we never give up."
"Derek, CC gave you another tremendous outing tonight going eight innings and giving up only two runs. How important is it to have a pitcher you can rely on every fifth day who can give the bullpen a rest, and what does it say about CC?
"It's very important to have a pitcher who can go deep into the game, and it's nice to give the guys in the pen a rest. CC is a gamer. You know he's going to give you a great effort every 5th day."
"Robinson, after going 0-3 you made that last AB count, hitting a walk-off homer into the second deck. What was going through your mind as you approached the plate?"
"I was just looking for a pitch that I could put a good swing on and drive the ball.
"How did it feel when you watched the ball sail into the stands?"
"It felt good."
"What does it say about this team that you never give up."
