Olympic Blunders

Here are the top 9 comments made by, or to, NBC sports commentators, during past Summer Olympics, that they would like to take back:

1. Gymnast, Paul Hamm: "I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father."

2. Weightlifting commentator: "This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing."

3. Dressage commentator: "This is really a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience since I once mounted her mother."

4. Boxing analyst: "Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths in boxing, but none of them really that serious."

5. Softball announcer: "If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again."

6. Basketball analyst: "He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces."

7. Rowing: at the medal ceremony: "Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew."

8. Soccer commentator: "Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've got eleven Dicks on the field."

9. Tennis commentator: "One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them... Oh my God, what have I just said?"

Sent to me by a certain "Grumpster" in Florida.

certainly a lot funnier than most of the OS comments these past few days...... ? I seem to remember jack Nicholas's wife making the "tennis comment" some years ago- Is it possible Andy's wife is plagiarizing Bloopers ?
Ohmigosh! Are these for real?!
Herr Rude,
It's entirely possible. I'd guess that jokes are the most plagiarized of all things it is possible to plagiarize. As one who has written and published a number of jokes myself, I can tell you that it is an awesome feeling to see or hear one of my jokes come back to me no matter who it attributed to!

I dunno...... they seem possible though; and the smiles they generate seem real enough!
Better than the BBC.
I might have to start playing tennis?

Or, at the very least, go through the pre-game warm-up......

Please delete my previous comment Sky.
I've decided the Weightlifting sounds more interesting with an American commentary.
Ha ha, just read. Laughed out loud!
