Thought it was mildly amusing at first but the novelty wore off after hearing it 8 MILLION times. They drove that sucker into the ground. It was disgusting. I actually made a point of not watching sportsline anymore because I knew I would throw up if I heard it one more time.


Yeah, it's like every sports channel up here has a corny saying for a HR. "Adios, muchachos" was over-used, as was "Adios Senor Rawlings", and so is "Ball: go away!". TSN actually had a commercial with two people named Jack introducing themselves to Dutchy, and then he says "That's amazing! It's back-to-back Jacks!" And after every joke they make they sigh and say "But, I digress". It's like they JUST learned the meaning of the word "digress" and feel they have to use it after every single corny joke (multiple per segment).

Anyways, I digress. Joe Carter's HR was the most memorable to anybody who watched it, probably. At least, it is for people north of the border.

Gotta give some love to Harry... ;-D

But that is not as good as him saying..."He is kissing her on the strikes...and She is kissing him on the balls"...... :*)

I like Chip Carey B-)

I hate Chris Berman's schtick.....it's tired
I Hate any call by Skip Carey :-P

I don't know about around the country, but here in Texas we have signs for road contstruction that say:

Road work ahead, give us a brake.

Now I know that means please slow down to help protect the construction workers (if they are actually working) but it's the wrong word! Use break so you don't screw up the kids any worse! Adults will get the double meaning.

Misuse of two, too, and to along with they're, there, and their drive me nuts. :-[


We have those stupid signs in NJ too :-t

I'm with you with the two/to/too and they're/there/their, but the thing that gets me is good/well. Maybe its just me, but I feel like punching anyone who says for example "I think I did good on that english test." And yes I have heard that, even from people I considered intelligent, too many times.

As for HR, I both hate and enjoy Berman's back back back gone. It probably depends on whether the guy who hits the HR when he says it is on my team or not ;-)

I don't know, I guess I just have a thing about kids not learning the English language anymore. I'm in Texas and my son went to kindergarten this year. Guess what they taught? Spanish! Yes, that's right, teaching kindergartner's Spanish when English should be what they are learning. So when I see or hear junk that is not correct English, such as "HE GONE" and "Give us a brake" it bugs me to no end.

Don't get me wrong, I can live with something like the Star Trek "To boldly go where no one has gone before", even though it's not proper English. It should be "To go boldly where no one has gone before". I can live with that, but something like "HE GONE" makes the user sound extremely uneducated and downright stupid to me.

Just thought I'd vent a tad. :-D

My favourite Home Run calls come from the guys off Sportscentre!!! I dont remember the guys name but in the highlights he goes "Albert pujols!!......SAY HELLOOO....TO MY LITTLE FRIEND!!!!"
jus cracks.

Other favourite sportcentre calls:

"He's hit that one into the people"
"Bartender!! Gimme a shot of jack!!"
(or for back to back to back the other week):
"Bartender, a shot of jack! But thats not enough, gimme THREE!!"

hehehe. I also love when a guy hits a double in the alleys, they say "he's shoppin' at the gap".

Some other good calls i have heard are from Tom Brennaman in All star baseball 2004 on PS2:

"that balls gonna make like a baby and head out"
"no need to valet, he's gonna park it himself"
"Whip up some gravy cuz that ball is MASHED"

Steve Lyons has another nice one:

"The bat bay is gonna have to start his car up to go find that one"

Baseball rocks.
