    Here are some comments made by sports commentators that I'm sure they would like to take back:

    1. Weightlifting commentator at the Olympic Snatch and Jerk Event: "This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing."

    2. Ted Walsh - Horse Racing Commentator: "This is really a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience since I once mounted her mother."

    3. Grand Prix Race Announcer: "The lead car is absolutely, truly unique,
    except for the one behind it which is exactly identical to the one in front
    of the similar one in back."

    4. Greg Norman, Pro Golfer: "I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father."

    5. Ringside Boxing Analyst: "Sure there have been injuries and even some
    deaths in boxing - but none of them really that serious."

    6. Baseball announcer: "If history repeats itself, I should think we can
    expect the same thing again."

    7. Basketball analyst: "He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it.
    In fact you can see it all over their faces."

    8. At a trophy ceremony BBC TV Boat Race 1988: "Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the Cambridge president is hugging the cox of the Oxford crew."

    9. Metro Radio, College Football: "Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like
    they've got eleven Dicks on the field."

    10. US Open TV Commentator: "One of the reasons Arnie Palmer is playing so well is that, before each final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them. Oh my God, what have I just said?"

    I can also remember when Dizzy Dean While broadcasting the Falstaff game of the week said the following and was taken off of the air for it. (Dizzy was known for drinking a little to much pop with foam on top during the games)

    He said,

    Look down there in front at the nice young couple.
    Hes Kissing her on the strikes
    And she's kissing him on the balls.

    I happened to be watching the game at the time and my Dad just about died laughing. As he was a friend of Dizzy's and knew that Diz had had to much Beer at the time. You could alway's tell when dizzy drank a little to much as he would start singing the Walbash Cannon Ball. Enough said Just thought I would share :D

    That's a great story. I'll have to tell my son in law who is the sportscaster for Northwest Missouri State Univ. He'll appreciate the advice. (ha)
