    yes... every single time they call something a double reverse it's really just A REVERSE. double, is when you're going one way, and then you go the other way... and then *gasp* you go back the way you were going! that's a double reverse! wow! but they call THOSE triples! my, aren't they bright.

    Or it's even just an end-around.

    One of the ten pin bowling commentators says "In there like swimwear" when a bowler pulls off a strike or a difficult spare.

    Yeah... that one doesn't make a whole lot of sense. With no regard for the defense, maybe. :confused:

    "What makes them so good, is they've got good players"

    Just said during the CSU-Butler game. [face_plain]

    Here's another gem coming to us from David Cone of the YES Network said during the Yankees/Reds game yesterday.


    "You know your supposed to catch the ball before applying the tag"

    I was listening to the Baylor vs. Texas game tonight and an announcer said that a certain rebound was a "hairy-chested rebound". [face_laugh]

    Heard on ESPN Radio's SportsCenter this morning:

    "Daisuke Matsuzaka becomes the first player ever to win back-to-back MVP awards at the World Baseball Classic"

    "Melky singled for a fair catch. First time ever I put down a punt on the score sheet."


    Just said on the YES Network during the Yankees/Phillies game.

    Bob Cole has been slipping a lot over the past few years. They seem to be phasing him out by having him do the Montreal games instead of the CBC's "sacred-cow" Leafs games.

    I hate watching Leaf games. The announcers refuse to acknowledge that the Leafs suck mightily, and have 159,000 ways of avoiding the truth.

    Anything Joe Buck says. This guy sucks royally, both in baseball and football, yet he gets the top spot for the MLB playoffs and FOX game of the week for football.

    "The Yanks are going to the pen and they signal they want Coke for Josh Hamilton."



    This gem is from yesterday's Yankees/Rangers game.

    Marty Brennaman, announcer for the REDS, said something a few years ago that I just went, "He didn't say that!"
    The REDS were playing in California (can't remember if it was LA or San Diego) and Marty was talking about the Star Wars convention and the guests who were hanging out in their hotel that they were staying. He mentioned the people who were dressed as Stormtroopers, Chewie, and Darth Vader. He bet that if Ken Griffey, Jr walked by any of the Star Wars fans that they wouldn't know who he is.

    As both a Star Wars fan and a baseball fan, I was offended.

    I remember when this happened. It was completely out of nowhere and would've been amusing if not for that reason: [link=]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_3Snd4HkgQ][/link]

    I remember that! haha. I think it was an attempt to relieve some of the tension of the moment for the hardcore fans.

    Yeah... "why do we care?" [face_laugh]

    Seriously, how many sports fans care about Britney Spears? Really?

    I really like Jon Miller. He's knowledgeable, passionate, and is good at what he does.

    But if he says "potential" run on base, I am going to scream. That run IS the tying or go-ahead run ? he just hasn't SCORED yet! It's like Miller thinks if the runner eats his vegetables, says his prayers, and works hard, he will be a go-ahead run.

    It just annoys me a little, but he's excellent.
