LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS IS THE
Shortest intoduction to any of my hubs. Why? I figure by you reading the headline and then the introduction, you should easily understand what this hub is about. If you need a laugh, not that I am a pro-literary comedian, just relax and read this hub.

"So you think losing the close ones are easier to deal with?"

DESCRIBING THE QUARTERBACK OF UCLA

"He might look like a beach bum, but I can tell you that he is a dedicated player."

Al Michaels

MICHAELS ASKING PRODUCER

"Hey, do ya care telling me when the latest flight outta here is?"

TRYING TO DESCRIBE A FOOTBALL PLAY

"Halfback well, he didn't mess-up, but he caused the center to be confused."

BURPS ON AIR

"Ha, ha. I can tell you that the sound you heard was NOT what you thought."

Erin Andrews

ANDREWS ON-FIELD ASKING JERRY JONES QUESTIONS

"Jerry, I mean, Mr. Jones, ESPN wasn't as stingy as you . . .oops!"

DOESN'T KNOW CAMERA IS ON HER

"Tom, this dress is awful--shoot me just from chest up."

      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.

      That would be the hardest job. Mess up and it's all over YouTube forever.

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

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