College Basketball Announcer's Chair Collapses During Broadcast

Filed under: Silly!ZportzBasketball

LOLz!

Who doesn't love a good sports blooper?

College basketball announcer James Bates took a HIGHlarious fall during the beginning of a broadcast when his stool collapsed beneath him.

Instead of getting red in embarrassment, the guy didn't let the awkward moment phase him and he handled it pretty smoothly.

Check out the short clip from the Xavier vs. Dayton game above for a good laugh!

Bob Uecker

Congrats!

Veteran baseball announcer Bob Uecker, otherwise known as "Mr. Baseball", will be inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame this spring!

The color commentator will be honored on April 17 in Las Vegas during the NAB's National Convention.

Not only is Bob in his 42nd year announcing play-by-play action for the Milwaukee Brewers, but he was a catcher on the 1964 St. Louis Cardinals World Series Championship team!

Film fans will remember Bob from the Major League movies, in which he played an exaggerated version of himself as Cleveland Indians baseball announcer Harry Doyle, who easily delivered lines like:

Filed under: Inspiration

This story is truly incredible!

Ted Williams, the homeless man with the golden voice, is homeless no more! The Cleveland Cavaliers have not only offered him a full-time job doing voice-over work, but also to pay the mortgage on a house for him.

What we love about this story is that Ted seems to have a good heart!

We’re so happy for him!

ESPN Fires Sportscaster Over Sexist Remarks

ESPN Fires Sportscaster Over Sexist Remarks

Good.

After veteran sportscaster Ron Franklin made sexist remarks to Jeannine Edwards in an off-air spat on Friday, ESPN pulled him from the next broadcast, and has now announced that they have let him go.

Franklin called Edwards “sweet baby” (or “sweetcakes,” according to other accounts), as well as an “asshole.” He also told her that she should leave the conversation he was having “to the boys.”

Said an ESPN spokesperson:

"Based on what occurred last Friday, we have ended our relationship with him."

We’re glad ESPN made the decision to fire him — there’s enough sexism in sports already!!

Jerry Seinfeld debuted as a commentator at the Mets game on Wednesday night alongside announcer Keith Hernandez and the subject of Lady GaGa came up.

Of course!

Seinfeld said:

"It's fair to say that we're all big fans of Lady GaGa — lame, out-of-it white guys in their mid-50s is her core audience. But I'm very protective of my Met fans. I love my Met fans and I did not like…the finger. It was disrespectful."

He probably just wants some more attention!
