You're On Cheryl! Cheryl? Cheryl??? (Plus Other Quotes From Opening Night)

Wednesday, October 31, 2007

Occasionally you're just chatting it up too much to notice that the Play by Play guy threw it to you. Cheryl Miller had also just done an amazing job interviewing Eva Longoria on her and Tony Parker's nuptials. Who would expect her to be ready for an "actual" report on a player in the game?


“The whole ratings system is full of ****. There’s no way in the world they know who’s watching anything in this country”- Charles Barkley (I tend to agree)

“The key to Brandon Roy is going to be his size.”- Reggie Miller (Umm What?)

“There’s Dean Demopolis who was at Temple under Don Chaney”- Mike Fratello

“The Gardener is Back!”- Mike Fratello after an interview with Eva Longoria

“He should aim for the hoop in the middle”- Mike Fratello after Marv Albert tells the audience that Francisco Elson sees double because of the mask he wears. Double is two Mike….not three. (Via Half Court Heave's live-blog)

And the highlight of the night had to be hearing Charles Barkley call out Skip Bayless and Jay Mariotti for calling the Spurs boring. He said they knew nothing about the sport, which made me fall asleep peacefully and miss the entire 2nd half.

There’s nothing like Charles Barkley putting you to bed at night……err, I’m glad the NBA is back.

If I ever win the lotto, I will pay big money for nightly Chuck Barkley tuck-in service.

Barkley is a godsend to broadcasting. I hate the NBA, but not as much as my loathing of Bayless and Mariotti . Good on ya, Chuck.

ESPN actually has a great broadcaster. Jeff Van Gundy is an excellent commentator - well spoken, smart, and actually uses words with more than two syllables.
