If you can't say something nice...

Is anyone else tired of hearing the commentators at the Olympics say things like,

"Wow, that is going to cost them"
"That is at least a tenth of a point deduction"
"That was a huge miss"
"They can't do it better than that" (in reference to a dive which I thought was going to be a compliment until she followed up with, "I have seen the Chinese do it better, but they can't do it better")

The list goes on.  You get the point.  They are Olympians, they rock.  Let it go and enjoy.

You have a good point. I'd like to see them go out there and do what those olympians do!

Sports commentators are annoying in general. I hear you!

I hear you, sister. I think they have to fill a lot of time and they think they need to keep jabbering away. Silliness.

I completely agree. we need to ban any sport decided by judges.

ditto. i loved when i was watching the 400m free relay and the announcers were saying, "nope, there's no way the US can win this now" and then they went on to win it! in your face, rowdy! (whoever that is!)

seriously, they have been horrible. so negative. i have loved watching the swimming, gymnastics and diving...but the commentators mostly ruin it for me.
