The Pam Ward Chronicles: Week Two

Saturday, September 06, 2008


We're back again for yet another day of Pammy goodness. I'm going to skip the formalities this morning and get right to the quotes (if that's okay with you). As always, keep the quotes coming and be sure to included your website(s) so I can give credit. Also, we need a calm Hanna to keep this thing up for the entire day. The winds are already pretty crazy, and the thing is literally going through my backyard, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Your Week Two Announcing Schedule

“If they can get the center or guard to the linebacker, or the second level, at the point of attack....it’s out to the races.”- Chris Spielman

“They’re lead by their offensive line, offensively.”- Mark May

“He’s tired tonight. He did a Soccer game in Dallas last night. It was exciting, there was actually a goal in that game.”- Sean McDonough

"And the ball hit him in the wrong spot that time.....um.....Yeah."- Roland Williams
"What spot was that?"- Tom Hart
"In the old.....uh.....Hands."- Roland Williams
(Via Eric)

A Gameday feature on Tim Tebow?! WTF!!!?! (Via Kyle)

I can't stand ESPN's love with him. They've run that same trip to the Philippines piece about 40 times.

I hate Ohio State, and I hate Pam Ward. The only reason I haven't thrown my remote into the tv is because I'm waiting for Ray to say something entertaining. Only in America. Yes, it's 7 seconds into the game. (Via Charlie)

Hahaha. Tell us how you really feel.

"There's good looking James Laurenitis"- Ray Bentley (Via Anon)

"6' 6" 230 pounds he's not supposed to be able to move like that."- Andre Ware (Via Nick)

Really? That doesn't seem like a lot. Andre Ware is just not good with numbers.

"I guess you can say he's a "Threet" to run."- Dave Pasch (Via Nick)

Terrible.

"Tony Romo, not available today for Eastern Illinois."- Dave Pasch

And to think....I actually used to like Pasch.

"Yeah, let it wing."- Ray Bentley (Via Bazooka Jones)

"He rode that down like a mule."- Rick Walker (Via JG)

"That ball must be riveted to your ribcage."- Mark May

Ummm....Miami has the ball at the Michigan 12 yard line. I'm pretty sure that's not true. And right on cue....

"You kick a field goal here and you get yourself within another field goal of tying the game"- Andre Ware

The score is 10-3 right now. (Via Anon)

DANGER!

"They are having a hard time getting to the Quarterback because of his elusivity."- Ray Bentley (Via Bazooka)

Wow.....just wow.

"He was catching everything last week. I can't believe he's dropping easy passes like that." - Ray Bentley
"You think that's an easy pass?" - Pam Ward
"Well, he got his hands up, that's what his hands are for." - Ray Bentley

(Via S2N)

"A 48-yard return...correction, 69 yards."- Pam Ward (Via Kyle)

Not even close and I'm pretty sure that this isn't AJ Trapasso and actually James Lauranitis....



"I tell you what. If I was a bartender, I'd give you no more to drink."- Lou Holtz to Mark May

"In a summer of Batman and Iron Man, we go to my other partner Cart Man."- Brad Nessler

"There were more people covering him than live in Calcutta"- Pat Haden (Via Sean)

"Better take that rifle away from the Mountaineer."- Mike Patrick after WVU turned it over on downs (Via Anon)

"Pitt needs to call a timeout here so they can get up a hail mary!"- Doug Graber

Rick, I know you played TE in the NFL, but come plugging your own position.

On the ensuing kickoff :

"GA Tech can take command here on this series."

Uh, the safety made it 16-12 BC, so if even GA Tech scored a touchdown (which they did), they would be up by 3. That was he PbP guy, not Walker.

Hockey is about the only sport where being up by 3 is a commanding lead.

Brent Musburger at the end of the Florida-Miami game "Superman wins again, but the Joker hung tough"

clearly someone doesn't read his comic books

"Superman does it again, but the Joker hung tough" - Musberger (who apparently needs to brush up on his DC Comics)

I wish I would have caught the quote word for word, but early in the Texas-UTEP contest, Mark Jones was talking about how big a game this was for the Miners and their fans. He goes on to say this contest gives them a chance to get "oiled up." What he was implying I don't even want to speculate.

I may have missed something as I just turned the game on, but Bob Davie just claimed that Colt McCoy "is facing his first adversity of the season" but Texas is winning 28-13 in the 3rd.

Showing the mountain next to the Sun Bowl, Mark Jones circles a couple and says:

"How do you ask your girl 'hey baby do you want to go to the game' and then take her up to the rock? I mean it's not like you got privacy up there"

Mark Jones just used the room service quote again. I honestly hate him more than Pam Ward.

He also said at the end of the third: "This is the biggest event here since the Stones. Well sometimes you get what you want, and sometimes you get what you need."
Bob Davie: "You've been waiting to get that one in."

Musburger's Superman / Joker quote has to be #1 for this week. I mean c'mon...the "Dark Knight" (which broke every box office record imaginable) came out less than 2 months ago. You would think with all the publicity and widespread acclaim it (and Ledger's character) got, even an idiot would be able to differentiate the two.

If that's not enough, consider 5 different people posted it here.

After watching college football on ESPN yesterday, it's making baseball on FOX (with Tim McCarver and Joe Buck) look downright cheerful.

@Sean - re: Mark Jones and the couple on the mountain

You realize she had her hand down his pants, right? And Bob Davie's comment about how they were clearly enjoying themselves? Priceless.

The video game simulation on the ESPN football field is a lot better than I thought it would be.

Andre Ware might just be the worst announcer in all of college football.

Mark Jones said Texas' appearance in the Sun City was the city's biggest event since Mick Jagger and the Stones played the Sun Bowl. True, but I thought my appearance in El Paso as an LDS missionary 5 years ago was worth something...
