Greetings and salutations, cyclingnews forum members. To all the Kirby haters out there, check out the livestream of the race in Montreal. It's a great compare/contrast between pro broadcasters and those who come off the street. God bless the guys in the booth, but the commentary is atrocious. We're talking painfully boring.
Point being is it's a perfect example of how hard it is to maintain interest when commenting on a race where absolutely nothing is happening. At least Kirby spices things up a little with his anecdotes and metaphors. Also, as has been stated a million times, he calls the end of a race like no other.
Hashtag Kirby is the best.
