    OMG LOL, that is hilarious. Do they shoutcast any good matches? It doesn't look like it just by taking a glance at their channel...

    I closed the video as soon as the people who looked challenged appeared on screen. Honestly I expect pure game footage not pictures of people holding cams badly.

    The best part is the first ~2 minutes (4 pool rush itself), but the rest is funny too.

    Well you sure are a dour one. Notice how the video is called Starcraft Amateur Hour and not a serious game cast.

    Especially when that entire part was thinly veiled and rather entertaining innuendo just because they could.

    If you want 'Serious' gameplay, look up either HDStarcraft or HuskyStarcraft. The 'Amatuer Hour' guys are just having fun. There's no need for more serious commentators if there's already 2 (professional?) ones that update their channel almost every day. Hell, HD and Husky are more fun to listen to and watch than Blizzard's "Battle Reports".

    Day[9] is infinitely more entertaining and knowledgeable than HD and Husky.

    And of course the counter to the 12 gateway build is the 3 larva at every hatchery build.

    I'll give you more knowledgable, but he is not anywhere near as entertaining as Husky and HD.

    I didn't say funny, I said entertaining. There is a difference, but I'll check those out since battle.net is down. Don't get me wrong, I do like day[9], I just think that Husky and HD are more entertaining.

    Well, it's only audio commentating. I don't see how anything other than humor could affect how entertaining a caster is.

    Also, lately, Husky's screams of excitement have been pissing me off hardcore.

    STORMS was fine the first time or two but by the umpteenth time at the end of a 40 minute match (on the WhiteRa vs DalaiLameR match) it got tiring.

    Well, there's excitement level, the person's voice (day[9]'s voice irritates me), personality. day[9] is good in those departments, but I just like the other two better. To each his own I suppose.
