Two new expressions I've learned to hate:

One is when somebody (usually a girl, but sometimes even a guy) sees or hears something cute or touching and gives this long drawn-out, "Awwwwww.........")

The other is same situation but some good news is heard and they clap their hands and say "Yaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!"

I fucking hate that. Guaranteed, you will see or hear one of the other within the next three days.

In the u.s. it is fascinating when people say " you Canadians talk funny eh" when you yanks say "like" two or three times in every sentence

When an announcer refers to a three point shot in basketball as "from down town" I cringe. I'm pretty sure that Marv (sp?) Albert started this and if he was the only one who said it it wouldn't be so annoying, but "down town" is the fall back for every hack announcer on the planet now.

Former Big Ten Network announcer and Northwestern football player Chris Martin may have been the worst offender at shoe-horning catch phrases into broadcasts. I once heard him refer to a "Skittles™ play". I watched the play over and over and to this day can't tell you what made it a Skittles™ play.

Anything that comes out of Dick Vitale's mouth needs to be retired.

Touchdown Buckeyes--that just is way overrated.

Also sick of everything on Sportscenter. It's just an awful show. I don't watch it anymore, but whenever I catch a couple of minutes, I want to gouge my ears out.

I like "pick six"  I also like "scoop n score!"

the next time Michigan recovers a fumble and runs it back, try and say it as you would imagine Ken Kal would announce it.  It really adds to the enjoyment  :)

"Impactful" - It sounds stupid and tells me that the person saying it is stupid.

"Fast twitch" - Makes me uncomfortable for some reason

"Basically" - If it is so "basic" why is your explanation so long?

"Economies of scale" and "Correlation does not equal causation" - The two terms idiots who took an Econ or Stats 101 blurt out when in an argument.

"Hot pockets"

Men saying "pee" instead of "piss."

The following common online butcheries:





Ohio referring to themselves as "Bucks."  Sorry no:  You're not a stud deer, you're an acorn.

Ending a comment with the superfluous, idiotic "that is all" instead of just the goddamned period you're supposed to use.

Their definately must be some more out there that effect me when I hear them but that's all ur going to get for now because I gotta go pee.  That is all.

One of my coworkers says swole all the time, like "are you going to the gym to get swole?" Every time he says it I want to punch him in the face.

Unless you are a cartoon dog and your name is Scooby Doo.

An ex-girlfriend's annoying roommate used to say it. A local sportscaster in DC says it. Turns out he's leaving town for a new gig. I rejoiced.
