I Hate Clichés!!!

Sports announcers sometimes drive me nuts. For example, they might say something like, “He’s really not been performing well of late” can you just say lately? Well I really shouldn’t be too tough on them. After all, they’ve had to overcome a lot of adversity to get that job.

Seriously, if I hear one more baseball announcer say “he’s only batting a buck 93.”, I’m going to throw a brick and destroy my television. Wait, I’ve changed my mind. I’m sure I would instantly regret destroying my television. Maybe I should just watch the games with the mute function on.

“No one thought we had a chance. nobody believed in us, but we overcame adversity because we believed in ourselves.” I have heard so many football players say that exact same thing. I think the reporters would be well within their rights to kick the player who uses these clichés in the groin. That way they really will have to overcome something to get up off the ground.

Perhaps that’s too harsh. After all, they’re just repeating what they’ve heard since they were a kid. So I think I’m going to become sort of like the terminator. i’ll go back in time when these clichés began, sit by an announcer or stand by a player being interviewed and as soon as any of those words are uttered, I will use one of those canned air horns in their ears. That ought to do it. No one would ever want to say those things again. You’re welcome.

  1. We’ve got an annoying one in the UK when the commentators of soccer matches say when one team is pressing another.
    ‘They are asking questions of….’
    I imagine the play being halted while members of the attacking team say to the defence of the other ‘What do you consider was the fundamental flaw which led to the collapse of the Soviet Union as a political entity?’
    It would be different.
