    Terry Gannon was the lead announcer for ABC/espn at the 2003 WC in Paris. He did a very good job.

    Some ticket holders may fail to show up for one reason or another. Some may arrive late, or leave early. Some may be in the restroom or at the concession stand. A few empty seats here and there are probably one of those.

    I saw a few blocks of seats totally empty. I suspect those are the seats the organizers decided not to sell because of obstructed view or something like that.

    Gannon failed to impress one poster after his '01 work. See last post in this thread from '03

    I miss the days when I used to do that at Pre, before the rotund guys in green blazers took control of such migrations ...
