It was also in last nights game, when Brent Musberger said "I think we all remember Jeff Blake when he played in the NFL and what a remarkable career he had."  I know it is possible that he is talking about a different Jeff Blake, but if it is the same guy I am thinking of. I only have one thing to say, WTF?! are you talking about?

Easily the most enjoyable part of the entire college football season. People couldn't get enough of it, lol
"This is for all the Tostitos" has to be it  
#2 | 1378 days ago

Well, my dad and I were watching a horse race a few years ago and the eventual race winner was named Arrrrrrr. So, the announcer really got into it, doing his best pirate impersonation. I mean, he had the attention of everyone at the track that day...."As they head for home, it's all Ar...Ar...Arrrrrrr!" You had to be there

it's actually something they do. If it's a laugher against astros tha fsn guys will play tic tac toe over the game with those white liney drawy things.

...astros fans see a loooooot of tic tac toe

Listening to UC playing Xavier scored tied  2-2 Xavier scores. They Announce we have a ball game! Yikes!

I can't think of anything specific, but I used to watch Yankees games when Phil Rizzuto was an announcer.  He always had me cracking up (I think AT him, though ... in a Yogi Berra kinda way  ).
#7 | 1378 days ago

As far as the stupidest:  when Bernie Federko was the color guy for the Blues he would say, repeatedly, on air "Joseph makes the save, but MORE IMPORTANTLY (caps are for my emphasis only) controls the rebound."  Huh?  No save=goal for the other team.  More important to control the rebound than make a save?  Thankfully, the team brought in Darren Pang and moved Bernie into purgatory (between the benches).  Worst. Color. Broadcaster. Ever.

It's funny you say that because I was thinking the same thing.  I had to look up his stats to reassure myself Blake wasn't that good.  While he wasn't terrible, he certainly wasn't "remarkable" either.  I was impressed with his son, though.  He's got a bright future.

If you're referring to the former Bengals QB that had a stint with the Cardinals, he was sorry. I had expectations for him, like the NFL media, but he just didn't pan out.

John Maddens commentary was either pretty good or bad depending on what type of night he was having haha
#11 | 1378 days ago

Howard Cosell calling Alvin garret of the Redskins ' The little monkey " and Jimmy the GreeK- the reason why African Americans excel in sports because slave traders bred us to be bigger and stronger to work in the fields. The sad part was it was a racist remark but I I as an African American gave him respect for the simple reason - HE DIDNT LIE!!!!!

Cris Collinsworth:

“From the beginning of time in the NFL, you need to distinguish what stars can get away with and what others can get away with, ... You can't tell me the Philadelphia Eagles wouldn't have loved to cut Terrell Owens. They can't cut him. He's too talented. They don't have people to replace him. You learn to tolerate stars and their antics.”

“Probably more than anything else, he needs a wife, honestly, ... If he had a wife, the minute he takes after Donovan McNabb, his wife would have said, 'What are you doing? Pick up the telephone and call him and apologize. You're so out of line.'”
#13 | 1378 days ago

My favorite quote wasn't from a broadcaster, but it was a press conference that John Robertson then the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That team was in the middle of their 0-14 season (they played fourteen games then). They just had another loss and a reporter asked him,  "What do you think about your team's execution?" Without missing a beat Robertson replied, "I'm all for it!" Classic.
This was the funniest...

Was Tampa Bay around then, I thought they went to 16 games when Seattle and Tampa Bay became expansion teams?

Pretty much anything Collinsworth or Troy Aikman says during their games makes me sad... they suck tremendously. Troy is quietly gaining on Collinsworth in the "someone really should sew your f**king lips together" department.
I don't have one  
#16 | 1378 days ago

I've spent my life listening to Harry Carey and then Hawk Harrelson. Pretty much everything out their mouths was either hilarious or more often - dumb.

The announcer for the Seahawks/Saints game made a comment after a seahawk turnover that thats not a way a wild card team can expect to beat the defending champions.   Uh...werent the Saints the wild card team?

Back in the '70s, the Padres' play-by-play guy Jerry Coleman was famous, and loved, for his goof-ups. Stuff like: "...and he slides into second with a stand-up double!"

Cosell's comment was unfortunate -- I'm fairly sure race had nothing to do with it. Like with me, I call my nieces and nephews monkeys all the time -- when I see them being restless, active, getting into everything. I think that's what Cosell meant -- the guy's everywhere, he's involved in every play.
Jimmy the Greek's comment, though, is messy. You just can't attempt to answer that question without getting into trouble. Only good answer is to say, hey, when I watch sports I watch people, individuals -- not racial groups.

I heard one this morning, when a CNN newscaster called the President the "Comforter-in-Chief".....The comment initiated an eye-roll, face-palm, head-shake, and scoff.

I had to immediately Google the same exact thing. LMAO. I was like, "Wait a minute? jeff blake?? WTF is Musberger talking about?"

Really? You may be right (I can't remember what I had for lunch Friday), but they were the first  NFL team to go winless over the entire season.
This was the funniest...  
#24 | 1378 days ago



I can't think of any single comment off hand , but i enjoy Al Michael's calling the game as he is a gambler and always finds ways to drop little hints in there.


That late touchdown may not matter in the final outcome of this one well except for "some" !
I don't have one

 I think Steve Stone must have had enough of Harry Carey one day. Because a ball was hit long and Harry said it might be... it could be..... and Steve said in a very flat voice it is Harry.    Cracked me the hell up, cause I used to get tired of hearing that myself.

How about when Brent yelled something to the extent of "TOUCHDOWN DUCKS!" last night while the TE(?) was at the 5.  He was promptly tackled at the 3 yard line.  Way to get ahead of yourself, Brent.  I would of been irate if I was a blind Oregon fan.

The NFL added 2 more games (16) to the season in 1978, their 3rd year in the league.

I know, B-Berger was in rare form last night. LOL, they really need to let that guy explore the studio space with his calls. I say a glass of fine scotch before every quarter and have some of the production staff giggling and egging him on in the booth like on SportsNation or Talk Soup. He also needs to grow a huge mustache, like tomorrow, to make the booth 2-shots sublime.

That's a brilliant idea.  Must see TV for sure.

I can't stand him either - and I'm a Sox fan. When Stone was doing the radio it was easy, I would just listen to the radio and watch the game with the sound off. Now they got Stone doing TV with Hawk.  Ugh. Steve Stone is great, but I could call a full Sox game using nothing but Hawk cliches.

"Can o corn"
"He Gone"
"Chopper two-hopper"

You have to be thee ONLY Sox fan, that i know, that doesn't like HAWK!  

He's right up there with my dislikes, along with Joe Buck (who hates all Chicago teams of every sport), Joe Morgan, Cris Collinsworth, Dan Dierdorf and Bob Costas.

 Too funny. I totally remember that, but I was as shocked as Brent when Auburn's No. 12 came out of nowhere for the TD-saving tackle.
