Hi, Grim Blitzrow here! The greatest announcer of all time and star of one of the most outrageous sports game ever, Mutant Football League! Haven't heard of it? Well, sit back and let Uncle Grim tell you all about it!
~ Grim Blitzrow, MFL Launch Trailer

Grim Blitzrow is the primary commentator for Mutant Football League. He is voiced by Tim Kitzrow.

There is some inconsistency in his presentation. Although some early trailers depicted him as a Skeletal Deadhead, in-game commentary suggests he is either human or Mutant-Human, judging from such lines as "I can't dance better than that, and I've got skin."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When a player breaks a tackle, he sometime says "Look at this guy break tackles! He takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'!" A reference to the slogan of Timex watches, "Takes a lickin', keeps on tickin'!" The slogan was also used a respawn line for the Overwatch hero, Junkrat.
  • When has a team has a big lead entering the fourth quarter, he mentions that Heidi is playing on superstation WKRP. It's a double shot-out, referencing both the TV show WKRP in Cincinnati and Super Bowl III, the infamous "Heidi bowl", where the game was essentially thought to be over due to a sizeable lead, so TV coverage switched over to a playing of Heidi, only for the New York Jets to catch up and ultimately win the game.
