TV "talent"

14 posts in this topic

Is it just me or is "Telly" a little skinny in the TV talent dept.?

I don;t quite get him. He seems to talk slow and mess up a lot of words. he kinda sounds slow and boring.

Am I being too harsh or are you guys seeing the same thing? I guess we could say the same aboiut Jack Morris and Tim Laudner, but they are ball players, not professional TV/Radio guys.

I like smalley and the Ron the Coom-dog and of cource Anthony LaPenta and Marnie Gellner

But Telly -- not so much.

Is he just new and a little nervous, or is he just not good.

Hitman

I agree, I think he's kind of a meathead, sounds like a highschool sports announcer at times, maybe he'll snap out of it next season.

"Hi. dis is Telly Hughes wit Twins baaaaaseball"

Yeah, he's not very good. He's probably nervous. Curious why Marney Gellner no longer does that job?

After Marnie got married and had a baby, working didn't interest her too much.

Yeah -- wasn't sure what people were going to say on "Telly""

He is not good. The only other "Telly" I know is Kojack -- wonder if he has a lollipop?

I don't have a problem with him. He's kind of funny to watch. Anthony LaPanta does nothing for me though. He's too boring. Coomer, Marnie and the rest are great though.

I think your criticism of Telly Hughes is a little harsh. None of the other broadcasters on the network were very good when they started either. It's not like Fox Sports Net is hiring the A list broadcasters. Give him another year. Give the Twins an off day and folks have to find something to complain about I guess.

    • I have two decoy jig sticks that just slip in between the rods and 'canvas' on the roof.  A fish can pull some line off it hits hard.  A Velcro loop can be added for additional security.   There are more custom ways of doing it but that works for me.
    • I'll betcha the camera doesn't survive the summer.   And I clean my weeds off and the pull the plug too without grumbling.
    • I know...   It was a joke...   This is Sillytown (capital S)...     I did check to see if the article was legit though.

    • This is silly town.  It was a joke, although on a stand alone basis the article was pretty interesting.   If it was an actual discussion item it would have been posted in one of the hunting forums. 
    • I oppose all that camera stuff, with auto ticketing.   How will the camera tell if there is water in my live well?  Or in my minnow bucket?  Will it focus on the plug as I drive into the parking lot?     I also oppose the red light cameras and speed cameras.  What's next?  Drones following us around?
