The Newest Trend In Announcing....Pirate Speak

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

This is how you start a Wednesday morning folks. Best Week Ever caught an announcer going a tad bit over the top with this call of a horse race in Saratoga Springs, NY....




It turns out that the owner of the pony named it "Arrrr", but that was entertaining none-the-less. That guy must have taken lessons from Jim Nantz on how to prepare your hyperbole ahead of time. Great work.

WTF (With Leather)

it's veteran announcer Tom Durkin! he always knows how to have fun with his horse races, especially when you have to call 10 of them everyday.

One of the top three horse racing announcers of all time. You can rip on him for one race call, but he is one of the greats.

Tom Durkin is the man! Just youtube his name and you'll get a ton of clips, from his memorable calls to a bunch of pretty funny ones. I met him once, great guy, loves the sport. Just awesome.

Wow...that TV news anchor just proved that his profession is the lamest, most retarded one out there. Do these people actually get educated to be that dumb, or do they just come out of the womb that way?
