Anybody that listens to RFH on X96 is aware of a little segment they call “Must-go.” The segment is a rip-off of Peter Griffin’s “What really grinds my gears.” I am going to rip-off the rip-off, which is probably a rip-off of something else and present my list of Utah Jazz presentation must-gos.
Must-go #1 – Harpring’s telestrator: I appreciate Harpring’s take on the Utah Jazz, and basketball in general, especially since he has played professional basketball within the last 50 years (sorry Boone), but they need to ban him from the telestrator.
Ok … that clip was actually pretty funny because that guy can DANCE!!! Harpring however unnecessarily uses the telestrator to point out the guys sweat. Madden used to do this to compare football players butt sweat (true story).
Please notice that he is the focal point of the shot … if not the only person on the screen. Matty … telestrator is NOT necessary.
Must-go #2- Thurl Bailey saying “Mouse in the House”: Thurl man … stick to making Christmas albums and give up commentating. I kind of feel bad for you … your lack of enthusiasm was hidden by Pace Mannion’s ability to annoy. Now that he is gone I notice so much more … like if a there is any break in a sentence you enthusiastically blurt out “Mouse in the House.”
Must-go #3- Alema Harrington: I miss David James … that geeky little guy knew what he was talking about. I refuse to take anything serious from somebody who approved the following sports show titles: “A-game” and “Powerhouse”
Must-go #4- Bolerjack yelling “BUCKLE-UP” with more than two minutes left in the game. I point this out because once a “BUCKLE-UP” is released they shout it after EVERY SINGLE BASKET! Now I take “BUCKLE-UP” as I better buckle-up for fifteen minutes of the phrase “buckle-up.”
In all seriousness the Jazz put on an entertaining production and I appreciate the effort.
