    I'm a huge soccer fan, so I get exposed to a lot of British commentators. Martin Tyler is a giant in his profession. One of the most recognizable voices on the planet, I would think. Gary Thorne (all-purpose) has great enthusiasm, although he doean't seem to possess the grip or intelligent perspective offered by Tyler.

    Who makes your list?

    He also coined the best grand slam call of all time. "Get out the rye bread and mustard grandma, its grand salami time!"

    The only TV commentator who, if he had nothing to say, said nothing. And who realised that, as the action is all there on the screen in front of you, you do not need to fill every second with talk as if you were on radio.
