Worst. Announcing Analogy. Ever.

Friday, April 04, 2008

This video is from Insomniac's Lounge and is by far the most odd and hilarious attempt at an analogy. The announcer is the Lakers' Stu Lantz commenting on how Kobe is just cold blooded and it starts off good....but quickly derails...

"See, that's one thing I like about that #24: When he gets you on life support, he won't give you mouth-to-mouth. He pulls the plug. A lot of guys get you on mouth to mouth- I mean on life support- they wanna hug and kiss and..revive ya. Kobe says, "Not havin' it. I get ya there, I'm stabbin' ya in the heart."

Hug and kiss you? Stab you in the heart??? You're already on life support and I've already pulled the plug but just for good measure...I'm stabbing your ass (and in the heart)! Too funny.

Stu Lantz is a grade-A buffoon, so this is nothing new. I moved out of L.A. and feel blessed I don't have to hear him insipidly wax poetic like this anymore.

Stu pumps out AA-worthy stuff on every Lakers' telecast.

Did you notice his partner had nada to say during this odd rambling?

Dead silence on the other side.

Speaking of bad analogies, during the Yankees telecast yesterday, Ken Singleton from YES called pitching with bases loaded a "snakes on a plane" situation.

Even Michael Kay, who is arguably the worst play-by-play man in baseball made fun of Singleton.

Stu is easily the worst announcer but gets no recognition for it. It's not like he's hanging out in some small market area. He's in LA and has been here for a long time...stinking up the joint. It's about time he gets some attention!
