"Salesman Of The Year Right There"

Monday, April 14, 2008

I love when announcers totally break form when the camera goes to a random shot in the crowd. The just completely forget about the game and comment or make fun of what's going on in the stands. Well here are the San Francisco Giants announcers commenting on a boat in McCovey Cove carrying some High School Seniors going to prom. The fun starts at about 1:10.....

Giants from Awful Announcing on Vimeo

The highlight of the video for me is when the girl walks by while the guy is taking the blonde girl's picture. The guy just loses it.....too funny.

(Thank to HK for sending the video in. Oh and today is a travel day for AA so this will most likely be the only post. I'll see you later tonight or tomorrow.)

Haha that's ace. I was a little afraid we were going to be subjected to "creepy middle aged men discussing high school kids" talk but they steered clear of that pretty well. Although it's a slow game when I know more about the prom than I do about the game itself.

AA, your vacation is really killing me. You are forcing me to work and I don't like it.

I'd push the Blonde off the boat and take the chick who interrupted the picture. Right at the end of the video she's leaning over the railing and you can see her clevage from mile away. You can tell that you wouldn't need to work hard for that one.

Yeah, I was forced to put up with Krukow and Kuiper, except for Saturday(day game, radio only), since I don't live in the St. Louis area. This was not the only time they deviated from the game this weekend. On top of that, they were hyping Joe Bawker as the next great superstar. To wit: "We have a lot to tell Jon Miller when he gets back in town"(the guy has played two games).

Can you blame em? If I were a Giants announcer I'd be searching for anything to talk about but the Giants also.

I live in the SF area and can assure you that this crap happens all the time with Krukow and Kuiper. Giants telecasts are a gold mine of "awful announcing."

The best part of the video is prob the link that youtube decides I might also like. All you can see in the still shot is boobs... It's Youtube friendly softcore porn.

Better to be underage drinking on a boat than getting a DUI. I'm looking at you, Carmelo Anthony (allegedly).

if someone finds the video of the rangers-devils game last night during the 2nd period please post it up...during a fight Versus had the ref mics on and the devils player said about 6 or 7 times loudly, "You're a fu**in bit**" and "You're a fu**in pus**"

Women's NCAA Bowling Championships are on ESPN2....WHY?

Apr 14, 2008, 7:29:00 PM  

Man that blows...MLB is on top of things lately. I'll try to find another version.

Anon- Beautiful, Warm and Sunny....Boston. More on that tomorrow.

RJBO- I'm watching and I'm actually into it somehow. These girls are umm.....special.

I don't know if Women's Bowling was as compelling as the NCAA Competitive Eating Championships might be this weekend (anything but watching the Detroit Tigers). I think Maryland-Eastern Shore just earned a #1 seed.

ok for all of you... im the one taking the picture... and this is not a high school prom it is a college party/dance for Menlo College in Atherton. Now not everyone on the boat was 21 but most of us are!
