Baseball Cliches

Postby stomperrob » Mon Aug 02, 2004 3:06 pm

Anyone else get tired of some of the overused baseball cliches announcers use on TV (and posters too!)? One I'm getting tired of is "goes yard". That has to be the most overused cliche in all of baseball - everyday it's: A-Rod goes yard, Sosa goes yard, Pujols goes yard - doesn't anyone ever hit a home run anymore or even a homer??? And they all use the term like they're the latest Chris Berman and they just invented it.
Sorry, just had to get that off my chest - now I feel better! :-)

Berman is awesome for football like "He......Could......Go......All.....The.......Way" or "Rumblin' Bumblin' Stumblin'" which he normally refers to Jerome Bettis running the ball up the middle

At least they quit using YAHTZEE for a homer. That was awful. !+)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

By " they" I think it was most often Kenny Maynesky.

Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]
