Boom Goes The Dynamite - Cycling's version

Have i missed a discussion somewhere about the VeloCenter reporter at the Vuelta?
Andrew Hood throws it to some guy for the play by play of the day's stage. And the guy does us no favors with his commentary.

The September 13th report is especially embarrassing.

His commentary reminds me of the random capitalization in the slamdancing on the pedals thread.

It sounds like he's just reading the live updates that they put on cyclingnews.com.

The ''SNAP!'' and ''CRACK!'' were particularly entertaining.

Hell, that whole thing was entertaining.
