    Sometimes this can be mistakes (wrong player's name, for example) and sometimes just stuff that doesn't make sense.

    A specific example of the former was a few minutes ago, one was talking about "Ryan Howard and the Magic..." :oops:

    Brian Williams on CBC sometimes used to say "two-run solo home run."

    I don't think anyone uses the term "double reverse" correctly anymore.

    The NASCAR announcers always make me laugh and it is sometimes because of a 'huh' moment.

    Anyone remember that contestant on the first season of Dream Job who only became a finalist because he won some contest at Wendy's. He was so terrible it was hilarious.

    That's because they don't use the word "reverse" correctly, either.

    Chase Daniels.

    Even during the Senior Bowl, IIRC, announcers called him that. Three years of turning a team around, and they still get the name wrong...

    All of the guys during the 3-point contest at the All-Star game. They never stopped trying to tell us that Jason Copono et al. are nowhere near as good as former players who won the contest. We get it guys, Larry Bird was good.

    Kenny Smith made me want to puke during last year's dunk contest.

    As my brother eloquently put it,

    "Get his (Dwight Howard's) (you know what) out of your mouth!"

    Replace (Dwight Howard) with (SEC/Tim Tebow), and you have my main thought structure during the last college football season.

    John Madden, during the Giants/Carolina game. "That a good hold", I didnt know holds can be good.

    Michael Kay on the YES Network, says at least one bad pun a game, and messes up at least one a game, he once credited a homerun by Johnny Damon to Derek Jeter who was on deck. [face_plain]

    Not quite the same, but similar (this was intentional)... on ESPN, referring to what Manny did with the Dodgers last year..."hit .700, with about two thousand home runs"

    Dang, thats a lot :p

    Sounds almost the level I had Travis Hafner producing at in MVP 2005 before my memory card got corrupted! :p

    Ah, good old HSPN (that's Hyperbole Sports Programming Network, for those of you wondering)
