They then cut to a camera that was behind Warner as he was standing with his hands on his hips and someone was kneeling in front of him tying his shoe. There was about 5 seconds of awkward silence, then you could actually hear the other announcer chuckling.

I remember that - I was dyin' laughing! :-D

Heard one of the announcers on Fox say a couple weeks ago...

Left handed pitchers natrually have more movement on their pitches.

Not in Baseball, but this was in Basketball.

Chuck Sworsky said after the Toronto Raptors won "Mamma get the Salami, this one's over!"

It's not really weird or anything, but I find it hilarious.

On a Red Sox telecast this year, the cameraman focused on a couple cuddling under a blanket on a cold night. Jerry Remy commented, "looks like that guy's working in his night moves!" never know what the Rem Dog might say

During Monday Night Football, the one guy says "Who would've thought that would happen" and his partner yells
"Who would've thunk anything!"

I've always remembered that one clearly. It was such a great additional viewpoint to the moment. It's true; who would've thunk anything?

I was watching a game on MLB TV. During a break between innings they apparently left the mic on and you could hear the booth chatter. Long story short. Hawk argues with some girl that came in the booth and when she leaves he calls her a stupid bitch!

Might not be the best story but I laughed pretty hard.

Some time in the 80s, Ralph Kiner on a Mets broadcast on Father's Day:

"And so, to all you dad's out there on this Father's Day, we wish you all a HAPPY BIRTHDAY".

My second place finisher is Scooter Rizzuto (Rirruto?) describing a long home run as a "tape recorder shot".

The Cardinals announcer when he said that Helton was on "the juice."

Okay, I didn't laugh then, but I laugh now because of Helton's stats.

Joe morgan, I'm not sure what game it was, I think it was last years ALCS, but when asked what the team needed to do to win his reply was, "They need to score more runs"

the funniest one i remember was a broadcast on ESPN a couple of years ago when they were hyping their HDTV. they cut to the announcers in the booth, and one of them says (along the lines of, anyways), "now, for those of you at home who don't have hdtv, it's really something." and then he motions to the plasma tv on the wall behind him. "just look at the quality and definition of this picture. simply astounding, isn't it."
