    Initially I was going to make this a poll, but lets me honest. There are too many talented sports casters to make a short list that would encompass everyone who deserved recognition. Does one include Madden and forget the imortal Harry Carey? Does Milo Hamilton get his due? Should we mention Calvin Murphy in the same breath with Marv Albert? Should Bob "Mr Baseball" Ueker get a nod while Joe Garragiola is ignored? Do we mention the Todd Christiansen in the same breath with "Dandy" Don Merridith?

    Mine is still the LEGENDARY Mr. Howard Cossell. He had the worst toupee in the HISTORY of mankind!!! But come on. Would Monday Night Football have been the institution it was without him?

    Who in YOUR opionion is the best Sportscaster of all time?

    I'm growing really fond of Cris Collinsworth's commentating. (I'm probably the only one though...)

    Loved Howard Cosell.

    For current people, he may not be the most entertaining, but I think Aikman gives a better analysis than most.

    Aside from my Houston bias' I'll throw in Mike "Doc" Emrick knowing a lot of folks here might not know who he is. (Hockey announcer)
