I have met Bob many times, and to hear him talk during the Tour is a hoot. You have to know the colorful adjectives he uses is meant with a tongue planted firmly in cheek. He is the most laid back no nonsense kind of guy you will ever meet. I can almost see him sitting looking up words just giggling away to himself while he does it. It in no sense detracts from the tour coverage, in fact, I find myself laughing my butt off every time he does one of his short comentary segments. I would much prefer him to another of the many commercial breaks OLN has plagued the tour coverage with. OLN shows more commercials than racing this year it seems.
What about "Bobke TV"!JBurton

Those are the only commercials I am not sick of while watching the Tour. My girlfriend has even taken a shine to him.

He sometimes even uses those colorful words completely wrong. Well, not just sometimes...MUCH of the time. Funny.

I think he has great humor and is fun to hear. Especially like his Italian language spot and the one where he is playing with the toy cyclists and talking about helping Jan.

Vocabulary, thesaurus or not, is good.
Bobke TV... One of the funniest commercials of the year!spyderman

I'd love to meet Bob Roll. I'm sure he'd be a blast to ride with. He should consider doing standup...

OLN coverage is a little weak. Might be a case of limited resources. Even though the commercials suk, thank God Lincoln is advertising on OLN...
