Bloody Wraps - May 5: Gus Johnson Is Dead, Long Live Gus Johnson

Bloody_wraps_3_medium

Gus Johnson is leaving CBS Sports. Much to Brent Brookhouse's chagrin, Gus is still scheduled to call Saturday night's fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley for Showtime. Once upon a time, I ranked our purple-lipsticked friend high on a list of play-by-play men in MMA. After a respectable debut on CBS for EliteXC's first network show, I figured a professional such as Johnson would improve his game as he became more familiar with the sport. Instead, he made one of the most histrionic calls in recent memory. Still, I'll miss the Gus Effect on my NFL and NCAA tournament games. Rise and fire! [Update - Clown face may not be done at CBS after all.]
