Anyone catch this on the radio this morning?

The "Grande-ism" that made me laugh most: when LeeAnn tweeden appears at the bottom of the screen and the ad for the Best Damn Sports Show period airs, Grande ALWAYS says:

"Hi LeeAnne!"


What is up with this guy? Seems like his egg is really fried. :eek:

I heard that this morning. Pretty funny stuff. Did anyone mention GG using the term, "scamper"?

"Get 'em on, Get 'em over and get 'em home!" That's my favorite. Or here's another oldy but goody: "He got it! He Got it! He got it!" Usually after a Jim Edmonds catch.

Catch? He does that after Edmonds grabs a doughnut.

More from GG: Any ball hit to the OF is "near the warning track"

(And he gets his left vs. right fields mixed up, from time to time)

"Smiling side of the scoreboard"

"Hi, hello and welcome!"

First televised game tonight, and I can't wait to hear ol' Georgie Pourgey

I'd like to punch that one angry guy in throat. Gamble I think. The other one is pretty good; especially when by himself.

Love the two angry guys. George Grande. amazing. He's quite the little character isnt he?

And then you have Chris Welsh, Grande's partner in crime: "He wound up way down towards toolarosa that time." ---when there is a side armer.

"Fly ball hit pretty deep to right, it'll stay in the park, though."

Rich Aurilia & Tony Womack are very thankful to see George Grande's name in the title of a thread at RZ! And they thank you.

:notworthy :notworthy :D

George Grande is no doubt our personal whipping boy.

The two angry Kentucky fans? They need to get the hell out of Cincinnati and get a gig in Lexington.

I guess this is the fan's Spring Training thread to get them ready for the new season. And most of you are ahead of schedule. :lol:

"See ya at the ball park everybody!"

ALWAYS has to sneak that in at the end of every broadcast.

He should be barred from using the words "scampers around the bases" also - as if they're little rabbits or something.

I don't know why he says these things. Stale cheese.

I hate "it'll stay in the park"

Just such a downer

Not when the other team is up. Then it's a moral victory.

More often than not, its not when the other team is up to bat.

I hear this a LOT - "...and he strikes him out swinging...but the damage done, 4 runs on 6 hits 2 left on base..."

Also, that "Best Sports Show Period" thing - I'm fairly certain that the Reds org. doesn't want him to say that on the air, because I remember he used to until it got complaints. There's nothing wrong with keeping baseball completely family friendly.:)

I think it's personal choice. I remember when Dan Hoard was filling in last year or the year before he said the full sentence.

I don't have a problem with it at all, either.

See, the thing is...if we didn't have George Grande, Tony Womack, Rich Aurilia, etc... What would we talk about on RedsZone?

(do NOT say Dunn's K's) :)

And every time he says it, I hear Neil Young.

All this talk has me longing for the days of Gordy Coleman:

"You betcha Marty. If that wall wasn't there, that ball would have kept on going."

Or Len Matuszek: "Oh goodness- Eric Davis looked just fashionable hustling down to first base."

Or even Johnny Bench: "And that's a homerun- now you all remember the last Red to hit a homerun like that- ME!!!!"

just a couple days till George Grande graces us with such lines as "Hi, Hello, and welcome"
