I'm sure everyone thinks their local announcers are a bit better than others, no matter the sport.

Few did it any better than Bill King, who was great at NBA/NFL/MLB. No idea why the man had to pass away before finally being enshrined in the HOF. He was far better than many inducted years before him.

Those Stauffer races were great JB, and listening to him exhort Zenyatta home had me cracking up. I thought the final Hollywood Park race call was fantastic.

Durkin had so many epic BC calls, I don't know how anyone could narrow it to 10. His Tiznow calls some of the best ever, and the ill fated Bayakoa/Go For Wand race had some incredible lines.

The Greatness of Durkin and Denman is amplified after listening to that hack Collmus scream and stutter thru epic stretch runs. I'll start a Go Fund Me if it helps get him replaced.
