Broadcasters piss me off - And players too edition

Has there ever been a broadcaster or player who referenced whichever game they play without preceeding it with "the game of...?" I know they have airtime to fill, but do those three words really add so much that they can never leave them out?

Also, on the subject of hand, I think that adding "the game of" can produce a more pleasing cadence to an otherwise drab sentence.

For example: "I was watching football."

Or: "I never could have predicted that I would meet my true love while watching the game of footbal."

See? Much nicer. :)
