Johnny Miller---Stupid US Open Quotes! - Page 2

Re: Johnny Miller---Stupid US Open Quotes!

It's stupid if you all are going to sit here and nitpick at everything Hicks, Miller, or any other announcer says. It's just flat out dumb. Miller is a pretty good announcer, Hicks is alright, not great, but not terrible like Chris Berman.

Re: Johnny Miller---Stupid US Open Quotes!

I think it was cold when Miller said something along the lines of Rocco looking like he cleans Tiger's pool. Cmon now..I know he didnt mean much by it, but don't dis the guy because of his appearance...

Sergio wore all yellow in the British Open. Remember that? And you expect us NOT to make fun of that? C'mon now, you're not livin' in reality baby!

To all: look at it this way. Johnny meant it as a compliment. It helped establish the "David vs. Goliath" stuff. "Look at this guy, he's nobody, and he might just beat Tiger Woods."

I agree.
Hicks is not very good. They may have gotten him out of the 5:00 a.m. news at KNBC.
Thanks for noticing Nantz.
Syrupy, unfortunately, seems to be in the anchor's job description.
Those sponsors want something for their money.
Augusta, IMHO, just plain demands that the anchor treats the tournament like the election of a new pope.*

Rocco is Rocco and he knows he's not pretty.
This match-up is going to invite extreme analogies.
It's a once in a lifetime: 18 rounds of heavyweight golfing between the champ and a guy out of a Pittsburgh gym.
Rocco is pretty humble about it and he's been around enough to take it.

Oh, Rocco's outfit yesterday was the hands down winner.

I spewed Diet Coke all over my living room when he dropped that gem. Thanks Captain Obvious!!

Okay I could see that...now that I think about it, Rocco probably would agree with Miller.

Re: Johnny Miller---Stupid US Open Quotes!

To hell with the quotes, I CAN'T STAND THAT CREW!

What's his lie like, Gary?
Weeell, Johnny, it's not too bad, but the wind is picking up, right, Mark Rolfing?
Absolutely, and it's right back into the players' face, Dan.
Yes, and Dottie, is it starting to rain a little?
It is, Dan, but, Johnny, I don't think that will bother them.

NON-F**KING-STOP! I feel like I'm interrupting their little party by having the TV on.

I love my new AT&T TV and DVR.
I watched all of the playoff but not until 20 minutes after it started - I paused it.
I didn't have to listen to any of it - FF through every time filler.

BTW: Once Tiger pulls a club, you can skip 90 seconds before he hits or putts the ball. You can't skip anything when Rocco has a club in his hand.

This is probably true (and it's the way I was generously interpreting it also), but he sure didn't say it very well did he? And from what I read he didn't explain it well later either (but maybe I missed a better statement).

If Miller wants to make a David v. Goliath point (not exactly blindingly original, but that's OK - he's gotta keep the time occupied), he could have done a lot better than that.

Miller just comes across as a bit jarring occasionally, but on the other hand he does have some very original and interesting things to say much of the time. It's like golf. Even the pros get a double bogey sometimes (not to mention a quadruple bogey, on a familiar course even .....). Maybe I'm being too hard on the guy ...... (other thread)

These are great. I'm going to use these on my next round.

I did get to use the Hitler on a friend last Sunday. He thought it was funny.
Oh, he won all the money. Maybe that's why he didn't really care on #17.

Thursday afternoon, Sergio Garcia pulls a 5 foot put for bogie and Johnny Miller says, "Talk about YANKEE DOODLE!"
Watching the US Open I kept asking myself "does Miller actually make this stuff up as he goes or does he really believe this crap?"

I didn't fully realize it at the time, but it was a Hitler somewhere on the back nine that put the kybers on an otherwise decent round last Saturday. That and an OOB.

I think that Miller was being a bit facetious when he put the circle around Tiger's left knee. I thought it was funny, and I have to assume that he did too. Sort of thing that I might have done, in jest.

Johnny Miller thinks he is talking to children, not golfers. Now his tag is "Kids..". Slice this into your trap lip.. I would think the viewer's are golfer's.
