Ah, Jerry Coleman. Broadcaster for the San Diego Padres

"Rich Folkers is throwing up in the bullpen."

"Winfield going back... He hits his head against the wall and it's rolling toward second base!"

"The Phillies beat the Cubs in the double header today. That puts another keg in the Cub's coffin."

"at the end of the 5th inning were still where we started, Phillies 2, Padres 2."

"on the mound tonight is Randy Jones, the man with the Karl Marx hairdo"

"They throw Winfield out at second, but he's safe"

  • It happens to even the most experienced broadcasters.  Sometimes they read exactly what's put in front of them, and the CBC at one time at least was full of a rather waggish bunch.  A veteran announce of great dignity and repute once said, reading, on-air:


    "This is the Canadian Broadcorping Castration".


    He was reading this off a newsheet or a prompter.

    "Willie Davis is not as young as he used to be."

    "Kansas City is in Chicago tonight... Or is it Chicago at Kansas City? Either way, Kansas City leads in the 8th, 4 to 4."

    "With one out here in the first, Dave Roberts looks a lot better than he last time he pitched against the Padres."

    "I made some mistakes I'd like to do over.
