What is a "personality?" I left that up to the voters to decide for themselves. Arena just edged Donovan for the award. Plenty of announcers ranked high, but it appears that voters were unable to focus on a single one. I guess they're all equally bad, ha.

I expected Dempsey to get a little more hate, but I guess talent outshines everything else...unless you're Landon Donovan. Or Bruce Arena. If you're doing well, everyone loves you.

Personally, I don't see how anyone could be more annoying than Alexi Lalas. Oh, and I had to disqualify one person's vote for the US World Cup ticket draw, which despite its annoying qualities is not an actual human being.

I'm only #18? Man, I'm far more annoying than Brandi.

Brandy Chastain's commentating ruined the olympic soccer for me. I though I was in a tape room scouting the next team with Cliff Claven from Cheers. I tried muting but i actually missed JP's call. Msnbc's commercial breaks were embarrassing as well.
