Kevin Harlan may be the most underappreciated sports announcer working today.

Who else can simultaneously provide play-by-play of an NFL game and a black cat that ran on the field? Harlan did just that and worked in a sponsor’s name as the cat made its way to the end zone during Monday night’s Cowboys-Giants game at MetLife Stadium.

From covering the World Series to the World Cup, Pete has done a little bit of everything since joining The Star in 1997. He writes about baseball and has a quirky blog that augments The Star’s coverage of area teams.
