Sussman: No Cheerleading from the P.A. Mike, Please

When Vince Carter hits a three pointer, it's a "VC 3!" If he makes a spectacular dunk, it's "Did You See VC??!" There's also "La Vida Lopez!", "Purple Hayes!" and on occasion, "Devin Sent!" Gary Sussman's calls from the P.A. announcer's seat are tame compared to his counterparts, whose thrilling trilling has drawn notice from the Times. Why so tame? The Sez isn't a fan of "cheerleading from the P.A. mike."
