"Cooler than the other side of the pillow."

rant...

OK, it was clever 5 years ago but does Stuart Scott have to use this phrase every time he starts to describe a good play? This is right up there with Sean Salibury ALWAYS saying "It's like shooting fish in a barrell, I've never done it but I'm sure it would be easy."

end of rant...

yes, I've always thought it was a pretty cool phrase, but he over uses it. Actually, I get kind of sick of him in general.

Announcers are like pro wrestlers. Get a catchphrase and beat you over the head with it.

They may over-use the phrases, but they are still pretty funny.

The worst was Berman's "daylight coming and we want to DELHOMME." In NFL Primetime, he probably used it about 8 times in a 30 second span.

Anyone see the Sportscenter skit on SNL with Ray Ramano a couple years back? That was hiliarious. Tim Meadows played Stuart Scott, while Ray Ramano played a new commentator. He used lines like "Sweet Sassy Molassey!"
