    Jim Nantz knew exactly what he was doing. And he did it anyway. In the third quarter of the Detroit Lions-Buffalo Bills game Thursday, the CBS play-by-play announcer set up a 29-yard field goal try by Lions kicker Michael Badgley. “Do not talk to me about an announcer’s jinx,” Nantz said. “Michael Badgley has not missed a kick all year.” Yes, Badgley — prior to his third quarter attempt on Thursday — had been perfect on the season. He’d gone 10-for-10 on field goals, and 12-for-12 on extra points. And here, he was faced with just a 29-yarder — an already simple kick made even easier by the fact that it was indoors, meaning he wouldn’t have to deal with any wind. It’s a roughly 98 percent kick — as NFL kickers have gone a combined 134-for-137 on field goals of less than 30 yards. So surely Badgley would knock it through, right? Right? Somehow, Badgley badly yanked the kick, and it sailed wide left. “Oh no!” Nantz said, as the ball was in the air...

    Basketball fans were graced with the presence of Gus Johnson Monday night — as the Fox Sports college football announcer made a surprise appearance on the TNT broadcast of the Philadelphia 76ers v. Toronto Raptors first round playoff game, calling the action alongside Greg Anthony. The game itself wasn’t noteworthy, but the celebrated announcer stole the headlines by demonstrating an apparent lock of knowledge about a very basic tenet of sports gambling — the over/under wager. Over/Under is a prop bet that has become a ubiquitous term with the rise of betting services like FanDuel and DraftKings. Odds are set for the combined number of points two teams will score combined in a given game, and gamblers are tasked with deciding whether the actual number of points will be higher or lower than the projection. Johnson, though, pleaded ignorance on the term during a conversation with color commentator Greg Anthony. “I have to be honest with you, I don’t know what over/under stuff means,” Johnson admitted to his broadcast partner. “Well the combined score at the start of the...
    Norm Hall/Getty Images Arizona Diamondbacks broadcaster Bob Brenly made a sarcastic comment about Marcus Stroman's do-rag. Brenly elicited severe backlash on social media from those who thought his comment was racist.  Stroman acknowledged the 'racial undertones' of Brenly's comment on Twitter. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. New York Mets pitcher Marcus Stroman wore a du-rag in Tuesday night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, and Diamondbacks TV announcer Bob Brenly made a sarcastic joke about it during the game's broadcast.  "I'm pretty sure that's the same du-rag that Tom Seaver used to wear when he pitched for the Mets," Brenly said.  Seaver was a white pitcher who played for the Mets from 1967-77, and never wore a du-rag. Brenly's comment ignited a wave of backlash across social media from those who claimed it was laced with incensitive racial undertones.  Those who criticized Brenly included several prominent MLB reporters, including Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post, Chris Williamson of SNY, and Molly Knight of The Athletic. —Molly Knight (@molly_knight) June 2, 2021Stroman retweeted several responses from those who spoke...

    Jim Ross opened up about why he was fired by WWE on the latest edition of his Grilling JR podcast. As quoted by Sportskeeda, the company let him go because they thought he was too drunk to moderate a panel involving legends during the week of SummerSlam 2013. However, the legendary announcer disagreed that he was inebriated. According to Ross, he wasn’t the only person who’d had a few drinks that day. While he said he was sober enough to do his job, company officials disagreed and seemed intent on making an example out of him. “I had a couple of drinks but I wasn’t drunk.’ That was the story – that was a lie. That was cover your a**, s***. When I got to the shoot, I was the host, moderator, whatever, and I went to the ‘green room’. The liquor was flowing like water. I thought, ‘Oh, this is gonna be interesting.’ A lot of the guys that did drink had drank too much. Naitch [Ric Flair] and I, I guess, were considered two of those guys.” At...
    During Game 1 of the Rays-Yankees ALDS showdown, Tampa Bay’s radio announcer sounds like he’s actually rooting for Aaron Judge to re-injure himself.  The New York Yankees are riding high right now, as the Bronx Bombers took down the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 1 of their ALDS tilt on Monday night. Thanks to the offense going off, highlighted by Giancarlo Stanton’s grand slam, the Yankees were able to take home the victory. However, they might be pretty damn upset right now thanks to a member of the Tampa Bay radio team. After Aaron Judge grounded out into a double play, it really sounds like the play-by-play man was hoping Judge would injure himself at some point during the series. This is tough to listen to. The Tampa Bay Rays should be ashamed of themselves for what their announcer had to sayIn the video above, you can clearly hear the announcer say, “Aaron Judge trying to sprint and prevent a double play. You want to see that from Stanton and maybe they get some of those recurring leg issues they’ve...
