Sadly, Tiger Woods took the spotlight this week after a terrible car crash in Southern California. It triggered comparison with champ Ben Hogan’s crash in the late 1940s and his subsequent golf comeback. How about sponsor Hyundai? What effect will it have on the car maker?
Tiger Woods was saved by his seatbelt and airbag; Will Hyundai’s GV80 Genesis SUV take a beating?

Announcers check in, sharing their opinions on whether they should describe the crazy antics of fans popping onto the playing field. Kevin Harlan, working national radio, had an epic call of a fan doing so at this year’s Super Bowl.
When fans run out on the field, should voices describe their senseless antics or ignore them?

Not only are announcers often relegated to the studio or their homes to call games, NBC Sports Network has had occasions this year when the same announce team has worked two games in one day, originating from two different cities.
NBC brings efficiencies to a new level; NHL and basketball voices cover two games a day remotely

Ian Eagle and Grant Hill worked an NBA game on TNT this week and did well but didn’t particularly excel. Our reviewer felt that Hill could have shared more strategic options late in the close game and that Eagle could have been more engaging, to get more out of Hill. Still, the duo were pretty good.
TNT’s Ian Eagle and Grant Hill get a B+ for their coverage of the Mavericks’ win over the Celtics
