Sports’ deadly language is absolutely lethal.
Sure, my post sounds depressing, but don’t blame me. Blame the morbid manner the media reports on sports.
Over the past few weeks I’ve spent lots of quality time surfing several sports events on the big screen.. . . only to be assaulted by the deadly language that sportscasters regularly employ.
Tell me if some of these don’t make you, too, feel like you’re being clunked on the head by a coffin:
The QB made a fatal mistake and got buried by the linebacker.
The base runner was a dead duck when the batter failed to execute the suicide squeeze play.
Time expired forcing sudden death overtime in this life or death soccer match.
A couple college football teams play their home games in Death Valley.
The opponents deadly 3 point shooting murdered us.
Now, do you get it?
Sportscasters lethal language must change; otherwise, it may kill us all.
Straight talk. No static.
MIKE – thee American made voice on sports!
