Jim Spanarkel Has A Special Message For You

Thursday, January 24, 2008

It truly amazes me that people mess up on live broadcasts almost everyday, but this one is special. Jim Spanarkel is talking with Seton Hall coach Bobby Gonzalez and he has a wonderful closing for the interview....

Ah yes....nothing like a freudian slip on-air. Good sex to you all!

(Thanks to Justin for sending this one my way)

True story: 2001 NCAA Tournament. Indiana State is working on a big-time first-round upset. Forward Matt Renn is winning the game from the line by himself. As he makes his fourth or fifth straight free throw, Spanarkel jumps in with some classic color commentary:

"He's stroking it like there's nobody else in the building!"

Some more classics from last nights Louisville So Fla game (on ESPN plus).
The play-by-play woman, early in the first half, following a score by So Fla's big man, said something to the extent of "SHE made a great move"

Then throughout the course of the first half, UL player Earl Clark was being called, "The Duke of Earl", apparently in reference to their Keys to the Game pregame, but nonetheless annoying since noone in Lou calls him that (they've got other cheesey nicknames for him, such as E5).
We also had a dunk by "Terrance Clark." In know this is an often mistake, national commentators mixing up first and last names of players on a team, but can't they just stop trying to sound like they know the players. We know you don't know them. We know you studied the names the day before or day of. Just use their last names. Is there really a need to asct like they've been following the team all year?

-end rant-

He longs for the days of doing tourney games with the sexy Ian Eagle.

Don't worry. He and Eye-an will be the #8 team on CBS's coverage come March, from the Qwest Center in Omaha, Nebraska.

Ha what a great clip. Spanarkel is actually such an underated color man. The YES Network is dumb enough to have Spanarkel as the backup color man on Nets telecasts. I don't know of anyone who would think that Mark Jackson is a better analyst than Jim Spanarkel. The longtime duo of Ian Eagle and Spanarkel always do a great jpb, whether it is on Nets games or NCAA Tournament games.

If it was Erin Andrews, it would be the best clip ever.
