    I would say more, but I don't want some Sherdog loving muppet to yell "he's opening up like a house on fire!"

    Anybody notice how Goldberg is spouting all these fucked up stats I usually hear on baseball or football games (and I rarely watch those):

    "Well fighter x has the most punches thrown in the 3rd minute of the second round by a south paw when facing a wrestler who's mother is in the audience."

    Yeah, and I remember how excited I was the first time I heard him do it; I thought it was a sign that he was actually bothering to improve (like how George Foreman clearly went to some kind of speech coach while he was a commentator for HBO).

    Now that you mention it, Goldberg's lame attempt to appear knowledgeable reminds me of a surprisingly well written children's movie:

    An interesting side note: that's the 14th one-run game for the Tigers already this season. Tops for any team north of the Mason-Dixon Line, whose home games are not played in a dome.

He hit two bullets yesterday, but came up empty. Today, more of the same. Hanley looks in for the sign. Lou, by the way, has hit .416 lifetime versus Hanley in the month of September in even years. So that certainly bodes well for this at bat.

    LOL, that's exactly what I was thinking. They actually do that in a lot of baseball games. Trivia: do you know that's where the term southpaw came from?

    He has got a nice clear voice, doesn't stutter. I think he does just fine. Or more to the point, I'm not sure anyone else would do much better. Putting him and Rogan together is hilarious. Goldberg, getting the names of techniques wrong; Rogan, calling him an idiot without being obvious about it and then generally doing a shitty job at commentating.

    We got one guy who is a good and clear speaker but knows little about the actual sport, and then we have a comedian who is arguably an expert on the sport but who sucks balls at commentating. What other duo would be so perfectly matched?
    I'd take Bas and Joe. That would be great!

    I assume that was a typo and you meant to ask either "do you know where the term southpaw came from?" or "did you know that's where the term southpaw came from?" I used to know the origin of that term, but have since forgotten it.

    By the way, I got to use the line "Using the simple formula A times B, over A plus B" in my Algebra class during my first semester of college. The professor tested it repeatedly on the board, then declared the class memorize it because it was better than what he was about to say. The really funny part was when he demanded I tell him, in the middle of class, where I learned that...I told him the title of the movie, the year of its release, and recited that scene for him. Thankfully, that endeared me to the professor instead of making him hate me.

    Nope, not a typo. Just bad grammar.

    Southpaw came from baseball. Baseball diamonds are generally built with the batter facing southwest. If you were left handed, your arm would be south. Ergo, southpaw.
