OKC Media Approval Ratings: Bob Barry Jr.

First of all, don’t let that picture confuse you.  We are approving/disapproving of the slimmed-down Bob Barry Jr.  Not that fat one who used to eat cinnamon raisin biscuits at Hardee’s and irritate Mike Steely.

Since that’s out of the way, lets move on to the fun stuff.  For those who don’t know “” or are new to the site “” we’ve had some fun with Bob Barry Jr. over the past couple of years.

We’ve done a pretty good job at pointing out that he knows nothing about sports outside of the markets of Oklahoma, Boston or Green Bay.  In fact, he’s done such a good job at knowing nothing about sports that he should probably look into trademarking his  “I don’t know buddy, why don’t you tell me!!!” line that he blubbers several times each day on the Sports Animal.

We also infamously busted Bob Barry Jr. last spring when he was being a little bit too flirty with the hot chicks in the local media.  Basically, he was flirting with hot newscasters like Joleen Chaney, Bobbie Miller, and Van Shea Iven.  Just kidding, he was never flirty with Van Shea Iven”¦at least on Twitter.

All that being said, little Bob Barry has cleaned up his act.  Instead of flirting with girls on Twitter, he now just tries to mingle with his heroes.  Heroes like John Daly.  Also, BBJ does live a great life.  He has ridden his dad’s coattails, gets paid to talk about sports, and even had his stomach stapled.  Hell, he also an attractive wife.  It’s probably good to be Bob Barry Jr!

Anyway, cast your vote for Bob Barry Jr. after the jump.  If you’re Running Girl, Pat Jones or Driver, we’ll let you vote several times

– Well, last week we learned that most people don’t watch Thunder games.  Brian Davis and Grant Long got a 56% approval rating.


  1. Matt Reese is the best sportscaster on KFOR. His enthusiasm for sports in general is infectious. I can’t hold anything against Bob Jr., though. Carrying on the family tradition, as it were. Seniority. Works well with Linda (that can’t be too easy). Uses a lot of hair gel.

  2. I talked to Bob on the plane on the way to the OU/Northwestern debacle in 90something. The next fall, I saw him walking toward the pressbox elevator and he not only said “hi”, he remembered my name. Bob is good people, folks. Good people.

  3. Riding daddy’s coattails as a sports announcer is an old tradition. Joe Buck, Skip Caray, Dana Scully.

  4. I can deal with BBJ.

    However, I cringe everytime someone calls the Sports Animal and tells him they love hearing his dad call OU football and basketball games and wouldn’t have it any other way. Maybe they just don’t remember what a good play by play announcer sounds like?

    For this I must click disapprove.

  5. Several years ago he hit on my girlfriend at the time while I was paying the bill at a restaurant, then shook my hand like he was a great guy. I saw him leaning over speaking to her and what she said that he said isn’t for publication here. She got to know him while in college and serving as an intern at some local sports-related outfits that will go unnamed. Maybe he’s grown up some with that hot wife he has!

  6. Bob Barry not only has one of the most annoying voices in television, he also gives me the heebie jeebies.
