I am new to the whole Marble League fandom, but I am here to stay. I have been a watcher of John Oliver for year, and I have to say, this is one of the best suggestions he’s come up with.
During this whole quarantine time, a lot of sports and everything else has pretty much shut down. In the absence of these popular sports, some that have been going without much notoriety gets their time to shine. I have to say, when I started watching it, I wasn’t 100% sold, but by the time I watched the 2nd race, I was. I could see why people like it so much. It’s simple and fun. The announcer Greg Wood, does a great job of giving every situation such life-like association that lets viewers feel like the marbles have a life of their own, and indeed they do in many aspects. Each have names, back stories, rolls (see what I did there) in the team, and so on. It’s a solid show that only lasts a short while but is fun to watch from start to finish.
