Analogies, innuendo, hyperbole--it's all there in sports announcing. The quotation in my signature is from the commentary during an OSU football game a couple years ago, and now March Madness is offering quite a few interesting ones, too. The other day, a BTN announcer remarked that Aaron Craft is "a potpourri of production."
Let's just let that sink in for a moment.
Ok, then let's consider that his fellow announcer complimented him on his "extensive vocabulary." Thanks, BTN. Do you have any gems to share?
