The Pammy Awards Week 8 (Updated!)

Monday, October 22, 2007

Pammy gets her first win! Everyone alert the presses!!! Let me know if you disagree with the points in the comments, and we'll see if we need to move any around.

10. "When sholder goes down the umph goes South."- Verne Lundquist

9. "South Florida will be replaced in the 2-hole." Brent Musberger (Via Gangsta D)

8. "They gave up 31 points to Troy and Brad Pitt wasn't the coach of that team."- Lee Corso

7. "Good timeout by Penn may catch them in a ball handling situation."- Andre Ware

6. "The guys say he is so precious with the young boys."- Holly Rowe (Via Gangsta D)

5. "Think about playing quarterback here at USC: Carson Palmer wins a Heisman, Matt Leinart wins a Heisman, John David Booty has played very well, and now Mark Sanchez. It's like going out as a runway model after Heidi Klum." - Pat Haden (Via S2N)

"That one looked like you were ordering an omelet at breakfast it was so open."- Gary Danielson

3. "If he bobbles the ball at all, and it falls incomplete, it's over. You leave a timeout in your bag, the season — done." — Mike Patrick, in the final seconds of LSU's victory

2. Bob Griese made reference to Brad Nessler's pink tie. Nessler says "Thank you, it's for breast awareness month." (Via Corey)

And number one......

1. “You finally shaved it off do you feel naked right now?”- Pam Ward

Here are the standings after eight weeks........

1. Gary Danielson, Brad Nessler (37)
3. Mike Patrick (33)
4. Pam Ward (29)
5. Chris Spielman (23)
6. Pat Haden, Lee Corso, Paul Maguire (19)
9. Andre Ware, Bob Griese, Ray Bentley (16)

Others Receiving Votes: Dave Pasch (15), Tim Brandt (11), Dave Lapham (10), Brent Musburger (9), Gerry Dinardo (9), Lou Holtz (9), Tom Hart (8), Bill Curry (8), Ed Cunningham (8), Mark Jones (7), Mellissa Knowles (7), Thom Brennaman (7), Sean McDonough (7), John Saunders (6), Quint Kessenich (6), Holly Rowe (5), Charles Arbuckle (5), Dave Lamont (5), Mike Tirico (4), Dan Fouts (4), Doug Flutie (3.5), Desmond Howard (3), Jim Donnan (3), Erin Andrews (3), Craig James (2.5), Verne Lundquist (1), Todd Blackledge (2), Jim Kelly (1)

UPDATE: Holy crap. I completely forgot Brad Nessler's "Breast Awareness" Comment! Mike Patrick falls to three because after viewing the tape there's definitely 4 seconds left on the clock. Those of you who see one second need more evidence to convince me.


Spielman had such a commanding lead, but he let it get away when it counted. It's like the Indians-Red Sox all over again.

You have to admit, Gary Danielson is just the better Pammy.

How the hell is the Patrick comment #2? I don't like him, but he's right. That's two losses and you can forget about the national title and probably the SEC.

The criticisms of the LSU play call are ridiculous. If you watch the play, he caught the ball with 5 seconds left. If he would have dropped that pass, there would have still been 5 seconds left, maybe 4. The problem came in where the refs didn't put the extra seconds back on the clock that the LSU scorekeepers shaved off the clock.

And I'm an LSU fan and I'm saying this.

And by the way, I thought it was even worse after the game when Holly Rowe asked Les Miles about the time out he called before that play (he didn't call time out before the play). Seriously, which game was she watching? That's why coaches don't take sideline reporters seriously.

The reason it's so high is that I try to mix the sexual innuendo with the just down right stupid Football related stuff.

If the LSU player drops the ball....the clock stops. It had nothing to do with LSU losing 2 games. How do you not know that after covering Football for 20 years?

Anon #2- You may be right about that....I might have to adjust and make room for Holly.

I agree, AA. And if you watch LSU a lot, you know that a game-winning FG is not a sure thing. Colt David was 3-for-3 that night, but he also missed 2 against Florida.

Anybody who thinks that the clock would have run out if the pass fell incomplete is crazy.

I just looked at it again on YouTube.

He caught it with 4 seconds left.

And Holly Rowe's question: "You called time out. What happened next?"

When I heard the musberger 2-hole comment I hoped I would see it here.

if i was thinking on saturday, i would have submitted this one.

indiana has the ball against penn state, down 36-31 in the final minutes deep in their own territory. this exchange happens:

dave pasch: you know, indiana probably wouldn't mind taking a safety here deep in their own territory.

(i guess since it makes it just a seven-point game)

andre ware: yeah, but they'd have to kick the ball to penn state.

pasch: oh. yeah. you're right.

noon games on espn and espn2 are almost unwatchable.
