"I'm sick of sports commentators..."

"I'm sick of sports commentators..."

This is a spoof comment in a British Magazine/Comic called 'Viz'

Edit. Seen as everyone is sharing their favourite letterbocks, here is mine:

'I think our star, the Sun, is highly overrated. At least the Moon gives off a bit of light at night. The Sun only shines in the daytime when it is light anyway'

When sports commentators say "you couldn't write a script like this" they aren't using the general "you," they're talking to you specifically. And they're criticizing your writing skills. They're saying that you, in particular, couldn't write a script like this.

Viz appears on the front page every now and then and it always makes me laugh when people try and analyse it and completely miss the humour.

"Convince your neighbours you have an expensive gravel driveway by gluing Rice Krispies to your tyres".

"Save money on expensive binoculars by standing closer to the object you are looking at."

Johnston's foot race & tackle on Vunivalu [NRL]

Like a lion taking down a gazelle. So majestic.

Turned on the rocket boosters real quick there. Impressive!!

After thoroughly analyzing the footage and tracking the distance measured over time I'm gonna have to say it was somewhere in the realm of pretty fast.

More like a lion taking down a wildebeest. He would have been wiser to bring friends. Men that size moving that fast is terrifying.

Chaos at French Grand Prix due to oil on track

The suits they have on are always the most impressive part of this sport. Sliding on asphalt at that speed and having it stay intact is amazing.

Picked out a biker to watch what happened. Rewatched with another biker. Kept rewatching for every biker. A few of them got destroyed.

I never would have known kangaroos have such tough hides without getting into motorcycling.

Most top of the range motorcycle suits (like you see in the pic) are made from Kangaroo skin.

Playing Catch during a rain delay

Or, the Guy was trying to give him the ball, kid don't want to keep it. Turned into an awkward game of "I don't want it."

I love seeing moments in professional sports where a guy can take such a small moment of his life to make a huge impact on a young kid's life.  

Example 1
Example 2

This last one wasn't as heartwarming, because it was the asshole dad's fault.  But it was nice to see the professional player recognize what was going on:

Example 3

It is actually tradition to throw back home run balls from the other team at Wrigley Field. That is why you always bring a decoy ball to throw back if you sit in the bleachers. Or give it to a young fan of the other team.

Here is my favorite one ever

The announcers on TV usually catch it.

This old guy fools everyone but his wife who was sitting next to the decoy

This guy pulls it out of his right pocket

It didn't happen at wrigley or was a homerun, but it was smooooth

7-Punch Combo.

7-Punch Combo.

I see that he's using the very unpopular 'block fists with your face' strategy.

"Remember, kid; when he starts punching you in the face, keep your guard down so he can't sneak a shot in at your torso."

One more of those and he can use his super.

Pittsburgh Pirates' Josh Harrison Reaches 2nd Base Uniquely

damn, he actually beat the tag

That dude actually looks like a pirate.

Had to watch like 6 times to make sure, but he really is safe.

This is an easy way to break your ankle. Would not recommend trying. Impressive none the less.

The most intense dart player ever

Judging by his reaction and his opponent's mohawk, darts can be some intense stuff.

Imagine a small pub where five corporate Christmas parties, 4 hen parties, 8 stag do's and 2 fancy dress parties have all congregated, the music has gone off so the landlord is doing 2 for 1 on shots to compensate, an arrow throwing contest between a viking and an overweight bald man in union jack shorts has become the focal point of everyones enthusiasm and that's what darts is like.

ONE HUNDRED AND EIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHTY

Dude, I stumbled upon the world championship of darts on some oddball channel a few months ago... it's fucking hilariously awesome. Everyone is SO HYPE getting wasted and cheering with some intense music and crowd shots. The players come out in weird outfits and usually have like 4 models hanging off them. It was legendary, and kinda weird.

E: aaaand my top comment is about darts. I fucking love darts now.

One handed mini golf hole in one.

I guess he found his happy place.

This is fucked up because you think to yourself, "there is no way they meant to do that." But then you think, "they wouldn't have been recording if that was just a freak occurrence."

It was all in the hips.

Pablo Cuevas' no-look behind the back Tennis winner

Damn, that was sick.

that was such a smooth hit and i've always loved it when a player hits an incredible shot and looks at the ball like "did i really just get away with that?"

60% of the time it works everytime...

But damn, that was sick.
