I think they bring a component of levity to the game. I know I’m on pins and needles, and both guys do their part in reminding me it’s a game at day’s end. I personally think their extended riffing on music to be great, but that caters to my own tastes. As far as making assumptions about Gubi’s ‘intellect:’ that’s a subjectively foolish errand. He is paid, in part, to be ‘entertaining.’ We only see the public/paid side of that. For all we know he may dabble in chaos theory, compose 12-tone oratorios for celeste and tuned-percussion, and be in the midst of isolating a genetic genome predictor for cancer on the 21st alleles. But his checks get signed for being the dopey relief—a slightly less four-seam batshit than Hud’s (who I also liked).
I see way more issue with some of the players than Gubi. Of course Rojas is great, full stop.
