John Harkes Is More Annoying Than A Vuvuzela

DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA - JUNE 28: I would rather have one of these blown in my ear to wake me up every morning than listen to one word from John Harkes' mouth (Photo by Laurence Griffiths/Getty Images)


John Harkes is more annoying than a barking dog at 6am

John Harkes may have been a great player once. But he is a horrible waste of space as an announcer for the World Cup on ESPN. I don't need to hear his opinion on how one team will prevail over another due the fact that they have more "heart". I don't want to know that he believes Argentina to be unstoppable because when they put on their blue and white shirts, it is as though they are putting on the pinstripes of the New York Yankees.

I want peace from inane babblings. I want freedom from banal remarks. I want to hear the drone of a thousand vuvuzelas bursting forth from my TV.

And until that happens, I will be watching Univision.
