Default Watching sports with hi-def audio

If you have a surround sound system and like to watch sports....

If you like to watch sports, and want to feel like you are "at the game" to whatever degree possible....

If you like to watch sports, but find the play-by-play commentators (think Marv Albert or Al Michaels), 'color' commentators (think Hubie Brown or John Gruden), and sideline reporters (Erin Andrews, Tony Siragusa) irritating.....

those voices can often be minimized or nearly silenced by
A) turn up the surrounds to near maximum
B) turn up the front left/rights to about 75%
C) turn the center channel all the way down as low as it can go.

Most sportscasts have the announcers in the center channel, so this strategy usually works. Some sportscasts have them in the front speakers too, in which case you can also turn those speakers down.

You still have to contend with commercials and whatnot that generate audio spikes, along with occasional artifacts of broadcast audio compression, but IMO it's worthwhile.
