Sound Alike

I may be stretching the BikeAlike metaphor here, but this one has been in my head for a while now.

Today we feature an audio BikeAlike of sorts: two announcers who, while not exact matches, have similar vocal styles.  I give you-

Michael Kay: New York Yankees play by play TV announcer

Dave Towle: Distinctive domestic cycling race announcer (and Mild Stallion celebrity commenter)

This edition accomplishes two things.  One, I finally give life to the idea that these two guys voices make them sound like they could be brothers and Two, I get another excuse to mention Dave Towle.

To get the full effect, you have to catch Michael Kay toward the end of an exciting game.  That way he has the gravely tone that evokes the sound of Dave Towle.
