Anyone that watches hockey here, note this next time you see player interviews:

 

Almost every NHL player, when interviewed, starts their sentences at least once or twice in the interview with the word "Obviously".

Even the coaches are getting in on this, too. That fucking word is all over every player interview, like it's been put into their collective agreement that they have to use it five times a day in order to get paid.

 

It's annoying as all fuck.:X

What gets me is the use of the word veteran. The announcers will simply say the veteran. Well what type of veteran is he? a 10 year veteran? a long time veteran? a seasoned veteran?

Gary Thorne was really guilty of this several years back.

"We're going to play one game at a time."

Fuck that! I say play every game at once. In fact,I hope some Sunday this year the Lions play all 16 games at the same damn time. Stingmark can get misery over all at once.

I'll do whatever I can to help the ball club.

Just watch Bull Durham again. Crash teaches Tim Robbins every cliche in the book.

During interviews, many football coaches say the word "football" 2 or 3 times per sentence. Herm Edwards was one of the worst offenders. As if we'd forget what sport they are discussing:

"Now that was a great football team we played this afternoon, we tried to throw our best brand of football at them, and it just may not have been the best football that this football team can deliver. But they played hard football out there, and the bottom line is, the other team ran the football better and we got beat."

Bill Clement has surpassed Thorne the last several years. He usually says about 30 different ones each night that He does Flyers post game live, or during a Flyers telecast.

A coach after his team gets knocked out of the playoffs: "i told the guys I couldn't be prouder of them"

This one isn't really a cliche, but I love when players constantly say they don't read the newspapers or watch local sports coverage - such blatent bullshit.

Mike Tomlin is becoming famous in Pittsburgh not so much for cliches but for just inventing words. He's got a few he likes a lot like "position flexibility" to describe guys (usually linemen) who can play more than one position. He also likes "situational football" a lot too.

Bill Cowher was almost as bad as Herm when it came to using the word football a million times a sentence.
