Tiki Is A Little Confused (And The Rest Of Your Sunday In Quotes)

Monday, September 10, 2007

I've picked on Olbermann enough the past two NBC games....let's move onto someone else. Umm Tiki you're not ON the Giants anymore friend....


Our, Us, We? It's one of my pet peeves when fans talk like that, but an analyst talking that way is just ridiculous. Remember this is the team you've been trashing for the past two months too Tiki. Good lord he is dreadful.

And Spinning Class? I would love to be a fly on the wall in that gym. Al and Tiki just sweating to the oldies. Good times.

Here's The Rest Of Your Sunday In Quotes:

"In his seventeenth season which means he's probably on the seventeenth hole."- Chris Berman introducing Chris Mortensen

Emmitt Smith had to of called Tank Johnson, Tank Williams about 17 times.

“If that had been perfect it would have been a completition”- Dan Dierdorf, Wouldn't they all be Dan?

"James Jones has great hands at the point of the catch."- Daryl Johnston

Kevin Harlan: "Hines Ward always lines up outside in a 4 receiver set." This contradicts the previous series when he noted Hines was in the slot in a 4 receiver set. Wonder if he's listening to himself.
(Via Dave)

“Jay Feely to kick the Field Goal…..What a good FEELing.”- Greg Gumbel

Just wanted to send in a comment I heard during a game on Sunday. During
the Browns-Steelers game, Rich Gannon dropped this little diddy about Browns
Defensive Coordinator Todd Grantham's intensity....

"He'll go into the locker room, he's gonna choke somebody."- Rich Gannon
(Via Mez)

“This is going to be a red-shirt year for Jamarcus Russell”- JC Pearson, Umm that analogy would work if there were years of eligibility in the pros.

“About LT’s lack of production he attributes it to the Bears stuffing the box.”- Pam Oliver

“We’ve got all the action and emotion you can have with a 3-0 game”- Joe Buck, Smugness personified

Dick Stockton mispronounced several names - even calling the Buccaneers coach "Josh Gruden" at one point. "Baldie" doesn't even merit any criticism. REALLY disappointing!-
(Via Bryan)

....and my personal favorite taken down verbatim (I had to rewind the TIVO 7 times)....

“I was just going to say that with the tightness that’s a cramp. That’s what we talked about you know dehydration and we were just talking about this and you know dehydration and you get dehydrated and you get cramps.”- John Madden
“Very infrequently will you see the KICKER dehydrated.”- Al Michaels
“You know sometimes they warm up so much and kick so many balls into the net they have these little drills they do……they just hyperventilate themselves.”- John Madden

Madden sounded like someone who is at that point of drunkenness right before spewing.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Trent Green never played at FedEx, I think he was an RFK guy???

And fuck you, WE (Redskins) straight up pwned the worst team in the AFC yesterday!!!

Whoops, I meant to erase that one. I thought that too GM, but he played the first year the stadium was opened. My bad.

Dan Dierdorf was also not that bad yesterday.

That Madden comment made me do the caveman when he said it live I can't imagine reviewing it 7 times.

and for Tiki. Just brutal why wasn't someone in his ear saying Tiki you don't play any longer. You work for NBC, you just trashed that team this week in your book and you need to stop saying "we".

I hyperventilated myself listening to that line last night.

Good catch.

my money says Coughlin is gone by midseason and Tiki is back in uniform where only his teammates have to listen to his iditic blabbering

PS: After the thrilling Bills vs Broncos game I think we can add another Gus Johnson highlight to the many montages he has on blogs. He had some great calls in that game. And Howard Cross wasn't all that bad either.

Tiki wasn't helped by Al's question about "your team, Tiki", instead of "the Giants, Tiki".

So it's easy to ridicule the people who mis-speak when that is what they are supposed to do...but then you say "Emmitt had to of". What was that, certainly not "had to have". Gotta keep your own closet if you are going to launch rocks.

Blah Blah Blah....glass houses and stones....

Thanks for reading and editing Anon.

Pearson's redshirting analogy works fine for me. Like a redshirt, Russell may very well end up spending the season practicing with the team but never playing.

By a field goal in OT. You guys sure rock!

And here I thought I was the only person who was annoyed by people who use "we" when talking about a team they root for.

I hope you're not pulling off the gas with Olbermann because you've caught some flak for it. Stick to your guns, man, and criticize when it's deserved.

After all, it IS called "Awful Announcing." Keep up the good work!

Never Anon....I don't have an off switch. I actually missed the Olbermann spot so I couldn't really comment on it. Luckily Tiki was there to pick up the slack.
