Sports Announcers Are Dumb

You know what I hate most about all the talking sports heads on television? When they imprint how they think they would feel upon the athletes they’re covering. Some examples:

Boy, the Falcons are really looking to get revenge for that waxing the Eagles gave them 2-years ago!”
 
“Well Curt, it’s Senior Night here at Schmedlap Field so I’m certain the Panthers are going to be fired up to play!”
 
“Well, we all know what Billy Bob Stinkerton said about the Owls last week, and they didn’t like it one bit. That’s bulletin board material Joe!”

And all I’ve heard this week on Sports Talk Radio is how the negative ESPN story on the Patriots is going to fire up New England . . .

Wow, that’s going to be something! The Patriots have a point to prove now! They have extra incentive to win!”

Uh, no they don’t. Belichick won’t give that nonsense a second thought.

Truth be told, emotions last about a minute into a competition and then the teams have to play the game. All that “we owe them from last year” stuff doesn’t go very far. As Mike Tyson once said, “Everybody’s got a plan until they get hit.

So true.

Ask any athlete at any level. You can get as fired up as you want, but after the first few minutes you have to play the game. You get tired. That’s when fundamentals and preparation come into play.

The fact is the team that’s the most prepared and/or has the most talent is going to win. You can play all the uplifting songs, show all the inspirational videos, and give all the rousing pep talks you want, but if you’re not prepared and mentally ready to play you’re going to lose.

Simple as that.
