I apologize in advance Boston fans, but hey...we're jealous of your Championships, and it's time to poke a little fun at your expense. Here now is Wizards' Announcer Steve Buckhantz calling Pick 5 of the NBA Draft Lottery....
Yep...these are the things I do when I'm bored. You should see some of the NHL hit videos I've done set to Linkin Park*. I'm very talented. If you don't get the reference at first here's a piece from Buckhantz' Wikipedia Page. Again....sorry Boston. Enjoy your SuperBowl victory this year and stop pouting.
Buckhantz's catchphrases have seeped into the lexicon of Washington, D.C. area sports fans, who revel in using them to describe a myriad of non-sports related events (ex. males observing a friend attempting to ask a woman for her phone number exclaim "Dagger!" or "Backbreaker!" when she can be seen rejecting the friend's advances) as well as debating the subtle and compelling distinction between a "Dagger" (a made basket at a critical juncture in a game that stabs like a dagger at the opposing team's chance of victory) and a "Backbreaker" (a made basket at a critical juncture in a game that breaks any chance that the opposing team will win).*- While this isn't true, if there's another slow news day tomorrow....that's what you might get.
(And yes.....I'm aware I have no life.)
