Last year we had you, faithful readers, grade the local MLB announcers for our authoritative rankings from 1-30.  It was such a success that instead of arbitrarily ranking the announcers from the NFL, we’re calling on AA Nation once again (I feel like such a sellout for typing that).

(Not) Virtually Identical: Mike Goldberg and the Differences Between the UFC and NFL.

  Contributor: Nolan Howell   I am a Minnesota Vikings fan. This is not often something I can proudly declare. Falling short and accepting mediocrity both on and off the field is something you come to live with. There have been Super Bowl losses; four of them, to be exact.
