TK is fucking annoying

I sometimes have to l to use the MLB TV feature and switch audio over to Ford and Sparks, Blum and Kalas sometimes are just too goddam precious for my viewing pleasure.

I do think overall both crews are quite a bit better than the average MLB announce team…

Bottom of the order doing it!
