Standard Sports Interview

 

First question: "Tell me what this means to you and how you feel right now?"

 

Answer:  "I mean…" — (the first words before anything is often asked or answered) OR

"y'know I mean…"

 

"…just one game at a time"

 

"I'm really excited."

 

"I'm ready to go."

 

"y'know…you know…"YOU know…"

 

"I'm just trying to stay focused."

 

"It was a team effort."

 

BRILLIANT and CAPTIVATING!  These performers are paid multi-millions, yet they sound like they couldn't get a job shoveling snow. And their comments are playing over and over and over on network and cable TV.

 

Tennis great Boris Becker is the only sports figure I can think of who had smart, thoughtful, sincere comments whenever he was interviewed. He never sounded like a programmed dummy.

 

What's wrong with this picture?
