    Annoying Sportscaster Terms

    Each year we are bombarded with the new cool lingo from the hippest of them all...sportscasters.

    My nominees for this years most overdone expressions.

    1) "Its true" for describing a field goal.

    2) "Signature win" for any team

    Add some of your own.

    James Brown, "to paydirt" when someone scores a touchdown.
    George Grande when there's any HR hit, "It's gonna beeeeeeeeee gone." Doesn't matter if it's in the first row of the seats, or a no doubter.

    I've found that ESPN has overdone the term "legacy". If Manning (not like he has any teammates or anything) loses, what will his legacy be?

    I agree with your 2, however, I don't want this to become a Grande bash...I'm more looking for the terms that sportscasters nationally just seemed to discover this year, i.e. new terms.

    "Storybook season." What does that even mean?

    You can't have an annoying sportscaster thread without the obligatory GG mention, c'mon now.

    About half of what Joe Buck says annoys me. He's not 10% what his daddy was.

    He's a "gamer" who "does the little things" that "shows he's a winner".

    If anyone can truly define for me what the heck any of those terms really means, let me know.

    I've always detested the word "athleticism" - it wasn't a word thirty years ago - it was "athletic ability". Yike! I still don't like it.

    Pretty much anything the talking heads on ESPN mutter these days qualifies for me.

    Maybe I've just gotten old.

    I agree.

    Though, there's a special place in hell for whoever decided to make every talking head scream, in unison, "You got JACKED UP!"

    It's not quite there yet, but the oxymoronic "instant classic" is getting a little too much use.

    Pay attention to the open sky
