I didn’t even see it, then another one, I hardly believed it at all

August 30, 2008

As much as I enjoyed the Olympics I’m glad they’re over and I hate to keep writing about them but, this list is pretty funny.  My friend, Trent, sent me these comments made by NBC sports commentators during the Olympics.

1. Weightlifting commentator: ‘This is Gregorieva from Bulgaria . I saw her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing.’
2. Dressage commentator: ‘This is really a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience since I once mounted her mother.’
3. Paul Hamm, Gymnast: ‘I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father.’
4. Boxing Analyst: ‘Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths in boxing, but none of them really that serious.’

5. Softball announcer: ‘If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again.’

6. Basketball analyst: ‘He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn’t like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces.’
7. At the rowing medal ceremony: ‘Ah, isn’t that nice, the wife of the IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew.’ 

8. Soccer commentator: ‘Julian Dicks is everywhere. It’s like they’ve got eleven Dicks on the field.’

9. Tennis commentator: ‘One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them… Oh my God, what have I just said?’

    how about this one during the Mens 1500m final…
    the announcer was talking about a couple of the men being boxed in “and they have athletes all around them”
