Olympic commentary moments
I should remember to write these down when I hear theminadvertently dirty-sounding sports commentary. The first one I think I'm quoting accurately:
During one of the women's swim events: "She's going to be playing with this girl for the next 150 meters."Then there was one during men's gymnastics about a certain pommel horse techniqueit started with "This is called a Russian grip" and involved the words "squeeze," "hard," and "long," but I don't remember exactly how they were put together.
A non-Olympic one that's always stuck with me:
During the NCAA basketball tournament: "For a big man, he has such soft hands."(It only makes that sound dirtier if I add that the commentators were talking about the player's, um, ball-handling abilities.)
Okay, I'm easily amused. It's surprising how easy I am to amuse when I've been watching sporting events from 5 a.m. till after midnight...
