    My favorite: "He plays the game the right way."

    Excerpt: Just watch Nick Punto—bunting, diving and light-hitting extraordinaire. Nobody has ever played any game more rightly than Nick Punto plays baseball. By the way, Nick Punto sucks.

    Time to crack open a Dr. Pepper and watch the fireworks.

    Only eight? Where's "You're not a REAL fan"?

    Oh, and good work there, Meat.

    I remember when the local TV station would interview fans after a big win or big loss and you'd hear about how happy or disappointed they were. Now they feel they have to break down the freakin' game like its a tryout for NBA Tonight.
    "Well, WE couldn't get the ball inside or get enough second-chance points to open up OUR outside shooting. OUR transition game just wasn't there tonight - the early foul trouble of Joe Star forced us to deeper into the bench than I would have liked to see."
    Back to you in the studio...

    Trades. Package all the crap from their team together and ship it off to another team for a valuable piece in return.

    This could alternately be titled "eight things I used to have to edit out of my writer's copy every time he wrote."

    "GET IN THE HOLE!" on the tee of a par-5. Nothing else is close.

    See, I find that hilarious, in a "wearing a Heat jersey to an Indians game" sort of way.

    It's funny because someone knows how annoying and stupid it is but does it anyway. Every time.

    I roll my eyes whenever a fan tries to show their football knowledge by saying their team should throw to the tight end more. ::)

    I get sick of psycho-analysis.
    I get sick of talk about team chemistry, who's a good clubhouse leader and who is/isn't a leader.
    I don't care if it's a fan, a broadcaster or a writer. It's nauseating.
