Kate Scott wasn't entirely horrible broadcasting the 49ers-Houston practice game on KNBR, just bad enough to warrant an excuse to turn off an exhibition game that is boring enough without sideshows.
I said I would know in five minutes how I felt Scott performed; I don't care for the voice. Neither does KNBR which stuck two other analysts in the booth (Keena Turner and Dennis Brown) ostensibly to aid Scott if she became officially horrid.
It's a stylistic thing with me. Forget for the moment how I feel about Scott's overall work, I'm not a fan. She's all vanilla wafer with wonder bread on the side. That said, she didn't embarrass herself and was just OK at best. How freakin' awesome.
You'll get quite a different view on Monday with a market so in bed with their PC bullshit that they'll find a reason to say Scott performed just so great and was so easy to listen to and blah, blah, blah, it's the nature of the Bay Area sports scribblers --thank God Ann Killion is in Rio. She'd be describing Kate Scott as the female Bill King. It's all part of the playbook--political correctness in the most PC-laden city in America. (The morning frat boys on KNBR will kiss her ass and Powlie will bow before her, mark my words)
Don't annoy me with platitudes about Scott. She's the most ungifted, overblown nonentity in the history of Bay Area sports media people. She didn't bomb on Sunday, God Bless her soul, she was merely mediocre --what a bonanza.
