Stupid People Announce World Cup, Hilarity Does Not Ensue.


Watching World Cup on American T.V. sucks! Its nice that all the games are on T.V. but listening to these guys make completely ignorant comments, exposing their unfamiliarity with the game, is excruciating.

Yesterday while speaking about the Germany vs. Argentina game the announcer said he didn't "care for penalty kicks very much" and that he thinks "they should just keep playing". Dude are you out of your mind, anyone who doesn't like penalty kicks doesn't like football. That's like a basketball announcer saying, "you know I really don't like slam dunks, they shouldn't be allowed to touch the rim." That announcer clearly suffers from an extreme and evolved form of mental retardation common near nuculear disaster sites like Hiroshima or Chernobyl.

Marcelo Balboa and JOhn O'Brien are the two worst announcers in the world. It's torture to listen to. Did you see how one of them got the wrong goalscorer in the Germany-Argentina game?

Yes! I did see that and I started crying. You were probably laughing but me no, I cried like a little girl.

Quite right. However, I suppose some people think this is an improvement from the old days when Americans were so uninterested in the World Cup that it seemed nobody broadcast them at all...
