Football Pet Peeves
Obviously we all love football here, but there are some things that are a little annoying.
#1 When radio announcers have to call every line that the ball carrier crosses. Someone breaks loose, and all of a sudden, "hes at the thirty, thirty five, forty, forty five, fifty, forty five, forty, thirty five..." Ok, we get the point, he's running. Some announcers dont feel a 7 yard TD run is long anough so they have to say "he's inside the five, four, three, two, one, Touchdown!!"
#2 The use of the word "healthy". Just because someone is missing a game with a sprained ankle doesn't mean he is unhealthy, IMO. The broadcasters will tell you the some team will be better when so and so is back healthy. Or they were lucky to stay healthy this year. When I think of someone who is unhealthy, I think of a raging alcoholic, drug user, or maybe someone with a fatal disease. I wish they would think of another word to use.
As you can tell I'm getting restless waiting for the season to start.
