10 Funny Sports Commentator Moments

In the “things that make you go, huh?” category… 10 funny on-air missteps from broadcast sports commentators:
Please understand, I am not making fun of sportscasters or any other broadcast professional. We are all just doing our best, learning as we go. No matter what, I think it is healthy to be able to laugh at a mistake. Getting upset about it sure doesn’t help.

Yes, I have my eye on the ball!

The instances I am reprinting here were gathered from the Internet. I make no claims of their origin or validity, they could all be made up for all I know, but they are FUNNY.
