Olympics Humor

Just had to share, but not vetted...

Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators during the Summer Olympics that they would like to take back:

1. Weightlifting commentator: "This is Gregoriava 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?"

RE: Olympics Humor

That is hilarious! I have watched some much of the Olympics (present and past), how did I miss that? Maybe because I flip the channel when the commentators come on.

RE: Olympics Humor

That sounds like the best parts of the olympic coverage!


RE: Olympics Humor

After Googling, I discovered that this is from the 2008 Olympics, still funny, but not current!
I suspect that those talking heads will provide some good ones this year too!

RE: Olympics Humor

Those are funny and I can see how a commentator might walk right into one of those. Any sport that has the snatch and the clean and jerk is bound to get a few "oops".

The commentators have been driving me crazy this year, and why is Ryan Seacrest at the Olympics anyway??

RE: Olympics Humor

I knew it was from other Olympic (other than 2012) because 2008 was the last softball event. Yeah, right I would rather have ribbon twirling than softball! Purely political decision to eliminate softball. Okay, I'm through venting.

RE: Olympics Humor

#9 I believe was based on something that Arnold Palmer said on the Johnny Carson show back in the 60's.

Still funny though.
