Bryant Gumbel does the right thing. It took him two years to do it, but maybe he thought learning on the job was the best way to help a fledging, barely watched, overpriced Cable outfit.
I'm all for having a three-man team in which one person is there not because of play-by-play ability, or expertise in the sport. But it has to be a three person team to allow for that individual. Having a two-person team that has one person who doesn't know the game or how to call it is kind of a waste. (note: Those three person teams usually have a personality guy. Bryant Gumbel clearly fails that metric, too).
Morning TV "news" shows really seem Bryant's milieu. Perhaps he should look into getting back into that.
