#827 Saying the same thing a sports commentator says just before they say it

A second calling

Because at that moment you go from a lazy potato chips ‘n’ naps fan laying on the couch in a crumb-covered pile of sweatpants, bedhead, and BO to an insightful sports critic with a sharp eye, quick tongue, and backup second career.

AWESOME!

  1. This is the best when no one agrees with what you’re saying, the commentator says exactly what you just said, and you get some justification / backup for the point you were making. Awesome.

    JL

  2. This actually should happen more often since many announcers are absolutely brain damaged. Great post, even greater blog, I’m a regular reader from here on out.

  3. This never happens to me, since I’m not into sports, but my husband is quite good at this. We both also enjoy a similar game – predicting the next line of dialogue on a TV show or movie.

    A fun moment comes to mind from probably the only time we ever watched that early ’90’s David E. Kelley schlock-fest known as “Picket Fences”. One of the characters was clearly leading up to laying some bad news on us. During the dramatic pause, my husband blurts out “Don’t say you have cancer! Don’t say you have cancer!” I doubt there has ever been a similar reaction to the words “I have cancer” than there was that night.

  4. Biggest turn on EVER when I guy says something more clever and before the sports commentator. It makes me feel like I’m with a true alpha male. yum!

  5. Happens all the time…my family & friends think I know all there is to know about sports! Whats even better is predicting actual scores before they happen…

  6. Superbowl Sunday…that’s how i spend it. annoys the crap out of my boyfriend and his friends.

  7. This happens to me all the time when I watch football or basketball. I’ll even call plays and have people look at me with mouths agape.

    The best is when you imitate the announcer’s mannerisms and voice and THEN make a call right before him, THAT kills!

    I’ve also had it where I’d say multiple lines and multiple times in a row! That’s fun too.

    And, yes, Christie,

    It DEFINITELY makes you feel like a true Alpha male!

  8. I’ve actually done that! Awesome. The next best thing is asking a question (while you are in your living room) and they actually answer it on tv. It’s almost like they heard you!

  9. Can’t think, brain dumb, inspiration won’t come. Poor ink, lousy pen.
    Best wishes AMEN!

  10. You definitely impress people with this one! Everyone in the room thinks you’re a complete genius for the next 8 seconds for breaking down the play before it happens.
    At an NBA game, I once called a travel from way up in the nosebleeds. Only two people in the whole building saw it: me, and then the ref. AWESOME!!!
