I can only assume that Dick Stockton is a nice man. He seems friendly enough. And I know he’s done play by play on many big time sporting events as a broadcaster.
But following the Vikings/Lions game on Sunday, I think he might want to consider retiring. In fact, I’m surprised that FOX hasn’t made that decision for him.
I’m not sure what was more alarming: his lack of knowledge of basic rules or his inability to remember who was playing and who was winning the game at any given time. He seemed lost, and when he realized he’d made a mistake, he concocted back stories to try cover his tracks. At times it was embarrassing.
At least the Vikings won. I think.
