No Indoor Voice: Sports
  • While shouting from sports announcers is kept to when it's arguably appropriate, the amount of gratuitous shouting increases the further from the actual sporting event the "sports show" happens. Interviews with athletes outside of the game or official announcements become louder as the relevance of the questions decreases. "Sports chat" shows, generally consisting of a small group of men (and sometimes one female) talking about the statistical and business side of sports, are almost as bad as sports interviews. Sometimes gratuitous harsh language is thrown into the mix, just for edginess or something.
  • Anything on ESPN, especially the late-afternoon (East Coast) weekday programming block: Dan LeBatard is Highly Questionable, Around The Horn, and Pardon The Interruption in immediate succession. While it was on the air, Jim Rome is Burning fit the bill as well.
  • Legitimate example of No Indoor Voice: Hall of Fame basketball announcer Dick Vitale. This is not so much a case of always shouting (although he does plenty of that, too) as just a case of having an unusually loud regular speaking voice.
  • Paul Allen, the radio voice of the Minnesota Vikings. Probably best known for his Big "NO!" during this Tecmo-Bowl-recreated play
  • Dick Bremer, television announcer for the Minnesota Twins, personifies this trope when anything interesting on the field is happening.
  • Gus Johnson, a football and basketball announcer for CBS and the play-by-play announcer of Madden NFL 11 and 12. Some examples can be found here and here. And here. (And how.)
