Six Obvious Sports Cliches I’m Growing Very Tired Of

Published by at 7:21 am under Editorial,Sports

Nobody’s perfect.  And far be it from me to get in the grills of experienced announcers.  I know they have a job to do and I understand it’s difficult to call an entire game.   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.  Or crap that involves where the game is at in a particular instance.   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?  Yeah, it is.   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.   I want a guy to really emphasize how much it would suck for the team who lost.   I don’t know, I could use a little less of this statement.

“This is Their Game to Lose”

As opposed to who?  This is a comment that bothers me because it sounds as if one team is responsible for their fate.   As long as they make no mistakes!   It gives zero credit to the other team if something miraculous does in fact happen.

“Hitting on All Cylinders”

I never liked this statement.  I just don’t.   Anything like that.  Well oiled machine, blah blah.  How about, “I’ve never seen a team play this well.”  “All the pistons are firing!”  Come on guys!

    I have two more obvious ones to add to the list:

    1. Quarterback throws an interception or the pitcher gives up a grand slam and the announcer says, “Ooooh…I bet he’d like to have that one back.”

    2. When an announcer says, “he’s the best (running back, quarterback, defensive end) in the National Football League.” Is it important that he define the league as the “National Football” one? If he said, “He is the best running back in the league” would we immediately question whether he meant the National Football, European, or California Penal?
