2009-05-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which game 7 cliche is going to make you want to vomit by halftime? Could you call a game yourself without saying something really stupid over the air on live tv?
(Andy from TV Land)
To take the second question first, absolutely not. One thing you underestimate before you start talking professionally is how hard it is to find interesting things to say. And I'm talking about 15-minute radio interviews and hour-long podcasts at the very most, not games that stretch to three hours. I think we're often much too hard on TV broadcasters for this reason.

Of course, even when they have time to think things out, they do often repeat the same cliches, yes. I'm going to go slightly off the board and answer the stat they keep trotting out about the Celtics being 17-3 in Game 7s at home. How is it relevant that Boston beat St. Louis in Game 7 of the 1957 NBA Finals? Bill Russell isn't walking through that door! (Kevin Pelton (Basketball))
