Award-winning commentator Michael Schiavello examines the greatest sports commentators in history, the best calls ever heard, and offers stories from his own journey through the sports broadcasting world as 2021 marks the 100th anniversary of sports commentary. THE COMMENTATORS reviews over 60 of the best moments in sports history and examines some of the finest plays and commentary calls across 20 different sports including soccer, American football, golf, boxing, Formula One, horse racing, ice hockey, athletics, tennis, baseball, cricket, professional wrestling, darts, rugby, cycling and more. And the biggest sports events including Olympics (summer and winter), FIFA World Cup, Super Bowl, World Series, Rugby World Cup. A powerful story unfolding during a sports event can inspire us about a sport we have never watched, an athlete we havent heard of, or a country weve never visited or even located on a map. Stories engross an audience and engage them on an emotional level. Once a commentator captures an audiences emotions, they are putty in their hands. The power of sports lies within those individuals and the ability of the commentator to tell those stories.
