    First of all, Curling is awesome! Pinball works best with the simple games. EM'S and early SS with quick ball times are the best way to get people into watching pinball. Sitting through 2 hours of LOTR won't gain any converts. Quick, exciting action is what people want and I believe we could do that in a highlights type format with our very own Crazy Levi commentating.

    Just from watching TONS of pinball broadcasts and having a background in theatre and TV, I believe the ONLY guys good enough to commentate "professionally" are Levi, Bowen, Jon Replogle and Adam Lefkoff ( sorry for the name butchering Adam).

    Quoted from pinlink:

    Those guys are definitely good. Levi is probably my favorite to listen to, hilarious and has a ton of gameplay knowledge. But there are so many others outside of your list that are really good at commentating pinball.

    I'm sure there are a lot of talented people, but if we are gonna get pinball televised we are gonna have to focus on just a few people, like " the voice of pinball" type of thing. But whatever works I'm all for. I just think people like familiarity and when they hear the same voices doing commentary, ( when done well) it's a good thing).
