Broadcasters piss me off - Part 5
Shy. Everything is shy. It's never short, they never just miss or don't even come close to a first down, it's always shy of the first down. Now, I can see that you might use shy if they come up inches away, just to have something different to say occasionally. But that is obviously not their intent, since they use it all the fucking time. Even if it's ten yards short of the first down. Most of the things in this series could be corrected if these guys would just try for a little variety in their expressions.
