I could think of a few by Phil Rizzuto and he knew the mic was on. Musberger must have thousands of gaffs. Great stuff.

A friend of mine tells about the sports announcer who reported that a player "slid into second base with a stand up double."

DUE TO A DYING LAPTOP, I AM FORCED TO USE ONE COMMENT BOX. I WILL GET MY NEW LAPTOP SET-UP NEXT WEEK. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

Ann1Az2,

I do too. Bloopers make my life worthwhile. And it shows us that the professionals are human too. Thank you and bless you for your comment.

FlourishAnyway,

Yes it would. That is why I had rather, if I had it to do over, is work for a radio station. At least the people do not see your red face. Thanks for your comment and sweet visit.

Hi, vkwok,

The Daily Show? Wow! Thanks. I appreciate your positive comment.

I LOVE YOU ALL.
