Pam Ward Chronicles: Week Ten

Saturday, November 07, 2009



I'll be around for a half day today, but that shouldn't stop you from submitting quotes. We're reaching the end of the line, and Pammy looks to have this one in the bag. Who will be the one to challenge her?

Tim Brandt and Doc Walker are doing the UVA-Miami game, so I'm just going to nominate everything Walker says. It'll save time and space.

From Big Ten's Purdue/Michigan coverage, Wayne Larrimee PBP & Chris Martin the Color analyst:

(talking about things in 1966, when Purdue last beat UM in the Big House):
-Larrimee: "You weren't even around in '66, you just a twinkle in your dad's eye back then."
-Martin: "Yeah...I think I was swimming around somewhere."

WTF?

I know we normally put soundbites up, but this requires some context.

Purdue calls timeout with 35 seconds to go, one second left on the play clock, and it's 4th down.

Wayne Larrivee: "after Purdue runs their play, Michigan will get the ball back with 5 seconds left".

Because every single play in the Purdue playbook requires 30 seconds to run once the clock starts.

Please, Please, Please understand basic facts of the game you are announcing.

I don't know who it is, but whoever is calling the Cal/Oregon State game on FSN said twice, "His get off is explosive," referring to OSU nose tackle Stephen Paea

Brad Nessler: "I can't imagine why they're not trying to give James Spiller the ball more in the 2nd half."

His name is C.J. He is one of the best players in the nation.

Also, Nessler: "I wonder if they had electrcity when Bobby Bowden was born."

Joe said...

" Oregon has the lead" Steve Physioc. He doesnt know who is playing.

offtopic: but watching strikeforce on cbs...this shields v miller match is on and miller had shields in a choke hole at the end of the 3rd rd (of a 5-rd fight) and Gus Johnson and co. was about to catch a heart attack...

I dont know if anybody else saw this because it was a I-AA (FCS) game, but if you can find a tape delay or re-broadcast, check it out. Richmond-Villanova on Comcast Sports network, I think. About 10 seconds to go, the kicker misses a game winning attempt. The audio then got really weird, it sounded like somebody from production, but it was not a broadcaster....started dropping "F" bombs and talking about the kicker being awful. Hilarious.

Matt said...
Nov 7, 2009, 10:37:00 PM  

follow up......found the audio on you tube, somebody was kind enough to post the DVR clip. It's about 10 seconds in, apparently it was somebody from the Comcast studio in Philadelphia, hahaha.

I think Bob Grise should be nominated for his entire body of work during the Northwestern-Iowa game. There were just too many stupid comments to mention just one.

walnuts said...
Nov 7, 2009, 10:59:00 PM  

@ walnuts: Unless AA has a better quote that everyone missed, I think the winner this week has to be Ron Franklin or Ray Bentley.

JFein said...
Nov 7, 2009, 11:01:00 PM  

This UConn-Cincinnati game has been a classic. Whomever's idea it was to put this game in primetime is looking pretty smart right now.

Whoever this douchewad is who is doing the Tulsa/Houston game pronounced it over after UH missed the 2 pt convo and then proceeded to say with 20 ticks left it's not over yet.

Matt Josephs said...
Nov 7, 2009, 11:23:00 PM  

Probably. I just noticed how incridibly annoying Greise was during the game. Maybe he misses Maguire or something.

walnuts said...
Nov 8, 2009, 12:10:00 AM  

@ Jfein I think you could put that production guy in there or Steve Physioc as contenders as well because Physioc was probably drunk on his ass tonight with all those errors.

Good point about the production guy, but I'm not sure if AA is going to take it or not because there is not a name to attribute it too. It was just some random dude over the air insulting the kicker.

"What a bum. Come on, end this fucking game. Ugh, go home already." - The random CSN production/tech/studio guy after the Richmond kicker missed what would have been a game-winning FG; the quote in case the video(s) get taken down by the time AA gets to putting up the Pammy nominees..

JFein said...
Nov 8, 2009, 2:07:00 AM  

Your right Jfein so I would think that he is possibly out of a nominee, however I think he could be a nominee for embarassing on air gaffe with Gus Johnson and Bob Griese.

during the CBS geico halftime report

Spencer Tillman:"Tim, what's THAT"
(show crude imitation of Geico money with googly eyes)

Tim Brando: "That's the money Urban Meyer could be saving if he hadn't criticized officials"

And as Brando attempts to toss to break from the background:

Tillman:"I always feel like..."

@Jason...Physioc probably was drunk...he actually sucks, have you heard the Angels baseball telecasts he does? atrocious!
