    Best Commentators Quotes that you remember.

    What have been some of some of your favorite quotes that commentators have said during sports? (I know I put this in a football thread but it doesn't have to be said in a football game).

    I have two favorite quotes that happened during college football games. The first one was during the matchup of Michigan State vs. Georgia in a bowl game. One team was getting flagged for a lot of penalties. The commentator makes the comment that this team is like Plaxico Burress, they keep shooting themselves.

    Another one of my favorite quotes happened last year when Oklahoma played BYU. Sam Bradford injuries his shoulder and in comes second-stringer Landry Jones. The commentator for the game makes the joke that Landry has the perfect football mustache... 11 hairs on each side.

    Re: Best Commentators Quotes that you remember.

    Once while watching Professional Bull Riding the commentator had a gem: "That bull was ugly and cantankerous...kind of like a blind date!" (I especially like the use of cantankerous. I don't hear that too often in sports.)

    Dave Lapham when Todd Blythe got his helmet ripped off by UT made me chuckle.

    Clark Kellog has had some good ones when doing Iowa State games in the 90's.

    Team had poor spacing - "They're all graped up."
    Guy takes one to the crotch - "Hit him in the family jewels."

    Re: Best Commentators Quotes that you remember.

    During one of our men's basketball games a year or two ago. I don't remember who was shooting, but someone put up a shot and Dave Armstrong said:

    "It's a floater that won't go."

    Re: Best Commentators Quotes that you remember.

    Shortly after Rick Neuheisel took the UCLA job he was being interviewed by Bob Griese. Rick had not been at UCAL long but was already on a recruiting trip. Greise aksed Rick if he has already passed his NCAA test to be recruiting. Rick replied he had. Griese then said " Good. Cuz you know you have had issues with the NCAA in tha past." The look on Neuheisel's face was priceless.

    Re: Best Commentators Quotes that you remember.

    Thom Brennaman provided some good ones that made me laugh in the 2009 BCS game.

    “If you’re fortunate enough to spend five minutes or 20 minutes around Tim Tebow, your life is better for it.”

    Even after Tebow earned a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for taunting Oklahoma’s defense, Brennaman claimed: “That might be the first thing he’s ever done wrong.”


    "I got so excited, I thought they were going on 4th down twice!" (After realizing it was only 3rd down)

    Dizzy Dean from the 1950's. The camera showed a young couple kissing sitting out in center field. Dizzy says "he kisses her on the strikes and she kisses him on the balls". There was a long period of silence when they realized what he said.
