When I was a little kid, I asked my dad how woman were made.
He said, " Gawd holds up all the kids by their feet and knocks the dicks off the dumb ones . . . "

She's being told what her producer is feeding her, but we're going to insult not the idiot but the woman who is being paid to parrot the idiot's idiocy?

The sad thing is a woman like Michelle Beadle who actually DOES know and follow sports takes a job with an entertainment show thus making your statement that much more true :(

I'd be willing to bet the producer said that the 4th Quarter ended in a tie, and she took it to mean that the game ended in a tie. Even in the tiniest podunk markets, no sports producer is going to make a mistake like that.

I got the feeling that she hates her producer past the point of being professional about it and now just wants to make him/her look like an idiot on television when the opportunity arises. I was on her way to New York City and got stuck in Portland! Portland!!! Maine!!!

I don't know what your destination is, good sir, but if you're anywhere near New York, I highly recommend you visit the observatory at the World Trade Center.

If I could, I would reserve Mayor M's unauthorized biography today, many years before it's even written. I need to know the stories no one's telling us about him.

Right....but anyone with basic knowledge of sports would know that a basketball, particularly a playoff game, can't end in a tie. She should know that if her producer says something like, "the game just ended in a tie; 89-89" that inherent to that information is that the game is going to into overtime. She needs to take that piece of information and say, "At the end of regulation the game is tied at 89 apiece. It doesn't appear that overtime has started yet, but stay tuned to News Center 8 and we'll provided updates/more information about the game as information arrives. In other news....."

The problem is that she can't do that..she does not possess the vocabulary and/or the knowledge of the game to enable her to piece together information.

For example: the simple phrase "It's the bottom of the 11th inning" conveys a lot if information.

Anyone with basic knowledge of baseball knows that:
1) they game is in extra innings;
2) the home team is currently batting; and
3) the game is tied or the home team is losing.

/Her talking about sports is like me commenting on women's fashion. Sure, I know a few random terms and can read off a teleprompter, but I can't take information and add to it from my own knowledge.

Lookit, this is FARK, if you want articles that are submitted in a timely fashion, see: Reddit.


FARK is just 2 letters away from FAIL.

Crude: FARK is just 2 letters away from FAIL.


It's also "2 letters away from" funk, and I'm pretty sure you're no Parliament All-Star.

It's also "2 letters away from" Cork, and yet it's neither Irish nor wine-stopping.

It's also "2 letters away from" yard, and the vast majority of users are indoors.

The fail here, if there is any, is all yours-- but you already know so, given that FARK is "2 letters away from" tard.

If she's reporting on sports, she should know that's impossible and vamp a bit. The producer told her it "ended in a tie"... she should have ignored him and just said its late in the game and tied 89-89. And maybe say "and now my producer just said its ended, we'll get you the final score as soon as we have it".

You know, like all reporters have to do some times: FARK IT AND DO IT LIVE!

Most New Englanders know the name Kristen Mastroianni. She was spectacularly beautiful and had a good head for sports, and still never went as far as she should have :(

The season has ended in a tie. The OKC Thunder only get half a trophy.

To be fair this is a Portland Maine TV station. Basketball may not have ever been played there. I bet she nails the stories on lobstaer stacking competitions and bareback moose racing.
 
2012-06-08 12:53:49 AM
I actually feel like an idiot because when I heard about this (4 days ago) my first thought was, "You can't tie in a PLAYOFF game." Completely missing that there are no ties in basketball at all.
