White Runners Cannot Be Taken Seriously

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

This video via 100% IR has by far the most awkward question and subsequent pause I've ever heard. The clip is from LA's NBC affiliate covering the LA Marathon. Enjoy!

I guess that's a good question in theory, but you could have phrased it just a little bit better Mr. Marathon Announcer. Too funny.

I had wondered what Jimmy the Greek had been doing since his death. Apparently he is providing "color" commentary for marathons in So Cal.

The pregnant pause after the accidental racism just makes the clip.

Is it one of these matters where other sports announcers, let's be honest here, they see a marathon announcer and they don't take him seriously?
