Nobody’s perfect.Â And far be it from me to get in the grills of experienced announcers.Â I know they have a job to do and I understand it’s difficult to call an entire game.Â Â But sometimes when you hear those obvious comments you kind of have to roll your eyes.
Comments that revolve around how a team has to perform in order to win the game.Â Or crap that involves where the game is at in a particular instance.Â Â Just stuff that’s pretty obvious and I as a fan could live without.
Anyway, here are six that I hope you’ll all agree with….
“It’s a Shame Somebody has to Lose this Game”
Really?Â Yeah, it is.Â Â You always hear this statement in a well played game but sometimes I wish an announcer would talk about how the losing team will feel when they do lose.Â Â I want a guy to really emphasize how much it would suck for the team who lost.Â Â I don’t know, I could use a little less of this statement.
“This is Their Game to Lose”
As opposed to who?Â This is a comment that bothers me because it sounds as if one team is responsible for their fate.Â Â As long as they make no mistakes!Â Â It gives zero credit to the other team if something miraculous does in fact happen.
“Hitting on All Cylinders”
I never liked this statement.Â I just don’t.Â Â Anything like that.Â Well oiled machine, blah blah.Â How about, “I’ve never seen a team play this well.”Â “All the pistons are firing!”Â Come on guys!
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
