"If a tree falls in the forest" dept.

The American Sportscasters Association have selected the 50 best sports announcers of all time. It's a pretty good list, of course, which starts with Vin Scully, Mel Allen and Red Barber.

Here's the catch, though: Apparently the group didn't tell many people about it. The list has sort of leaked out, as the Association's own Web site apparently didn't mention it until today -- and it just put out a simple list without any biographies.

I'm not sure I would have put Bill Walton at #39 (one spot ahead of Foster Hewitt, which anyone living by the Canadian border will tell you that's just wrong), and Chris Berman at #35 seems a little high on the list, but the usual suspects are listed. You can find the full list here.

Are Steve Cuccia and his tall, thin sidekick on there?
