As usual, today’s Hot Clicks was full of tasty morsels of sporting goodness, with the video below being the highlight.
The video features Matt Lorch (hence the name “Lorchcast”) and is quite possibly the worst sportscast of all time when you consider the host’s failures and the numerous production mishaps.
It was uploaded to YouTube on August 18th of 2006, so it’s not new. But it is funny…very funny…because, well, you just don’t get to see this kind of ineptitude on television very often.
As Jimmy Traina says in his Hot Clicks introduction to the video “sit back, relax and enjoy it.”
So this seemed like the perfect excuse to trot out an old favorite: the infamous “Boom goes the dynamite” sportscast, which spawned a new catchphrase for dorky, sports-obsessed, 20-somethings like me to use over and over and at completely unnecessary times.
If you haven’t seen it, you have to watch the video below. Chances are good that you have seen it, but then you’ll agree that it’s definitely worth another viewing.
“Boom Goes the Dynamite”
It goes without saying Brian Collins is my all-time favorite sportscaster. And he should be yours too.
Now the obvious question is: which of these two epically bad sportscast is worse? (or, in a strange, ironic way – because of how much pure, unintentional comedic enjoyment they provide – maybe I should say…better?)
I voted for the Lorchcast.
Sorry, but I have to support Brian Collins. He actually apologizes to someone off camera in the middle of his sportscast, and while his performance is an absolute one-man trainwreck – whereas the Lorchcast combines Matt’s ineptitude with several technical and production miscues – the Collins video gave us “Boom goes the dynamite”, a catchphrase for which we are all forever in his debt.
