I take a bit of pride in some of the more thoughtful, longer columns that have appeared on Awful Announcing in the past year. Hopefully, it’s given AA a different dimension and provided more depth and meaningful commentary to the site that you all knew and loved.

Jim Mora and Ron Pitts took this craze to a new level when they attempted to become the first broadcast pairing in NFL history to eat each other on live television during the Chargers/Vikings game.
