For anyone who saw any of the US Davis cup matches on Versus

Was it just me or could you hear one of the commentators breathing really heavy into the mic the whole match?

It was kinda creeping me out.

I'm just ticked that I didn't know the DC was on Versus....did they broadcast only the USA match? If Barry MacKay was the commentator....he's really heavy and probably has a lot of pressure on his diaphragm when seated...LOL

I believe Versus have the rights to USA's DC matches in US for 2 years since ESPN was not interested.

Yeah, you could hear it, but it wasn't anything like Bobby Riggs during that follow up to the battle of the sexes about 15-20 years ago. That was out of control.

I was just annoyed by the guy saying, "Wow, during the rallies. He acted like he watching history. Dude, it was Bob Bryan.

Hmmm I didn't notice that much. I saw some of the Isreal/Sweden and USA/Austria matches. However I didn't bother to watch yesterday.

Sometimes their "color" commentary is so overblown...it's like they think we're listening on the radio and can't see the match with our own eyes.
