"There's No Getting Away From This Guy-In Or Out Of Season"

My main season is Baseball, especially Red Sox Baseball on N E S N, wherever I can get that channel. Most of the time, I get it @ Professor Thom's, sometimes @ The Hairy Monk & occasionally @ Woodhaven House in Middle Village, Queens, with the 1st 2 bars in Manhattan:

The Play By Play Man is Don Orsillo, often called "Necktie Boy" or "Announcer Boy";

On N E S N, his Analyst is Gerald Peter Remy(RemDawg);

Then, in the N L Division Series between The CO Rockies & Phillies, he worked with Joe Simpson on TBS & got kudos;

It was ALCS & the World Series & DO was working Pre & Post-Game Shows on N E S N;

Tonight, Rutgers was beating the Crap out of Army in College Football, on ESPN & I heard a familiar voice in the booth;

Yes, you heard & saw Don Orsillo- he's fine-tuned both in & out of season;

Sorry to ruin your post, Michael, but that was NOT Don Orsillo doing Friday night's Rutgers-Army game. I caught some of it and it was DO soundalike Sean McDonough doing the game, as he does college football for ESPN. Not to mention he was succeeded at NESN by Announcer Boy...

Unfortunately, John, he did ID himself as Orsillo @ The End:

It wasn't Orsillo, Michael. It WAS McDonough.

From Awfulannouncing.com:
