One of my favorite things to witness/hear, is when an announcer starts heading down a path that he shouldn't, and just plows ahead anyway. It's usually a classic case of "foot in mouth disease", but occasionally it can be much much more. Like take for example Houston analyst, Clyde Drexler. The "Glyde" was trying to explain how much of a mismatch Rockets' big man Yao Ming had over a defending Andres Nocioni, but went with just about the worst analogy you could think of. What is it you ask?
Clubbing baby seals. Via Clutch Fans....
"And Yao takes it to the middle, and hooks it up and in. Boy just keep going to that."- Bill Worrell
"That's like clubbing baby seals. There's nothing Nocioni can do."- Clyde Drexler
"Oh wow. Give me a better picture than that."- Bill Worrell
"Well he's helpless basically."- Clyde Drexler
Yeah Clyde....we get it. Good lord that was a bad choice of words.
