Most annoying commentator catchphrases?

"punched his ticket to xyz"

Come up with something better.  Tickets havent been punched since mail was the form of communication and horses were viable transportation.

 

Probably more of a social media overstatement these days. I think every D1 twitter account at conference tournament time used a "ticket punched" theme.

How about some favorite remarks by the pundits and commentators?  

I had to laugh when Jim Gibbons (I believe it was him) said that IMar has "prison strength".

I remember when Leroy Kemp was commentating during one of Zain's NCAA title matches. He mentioned Zain is "freakingly strong". I'd be pretty proud of that comment if I was Zain :D

Not quite the same thing but here are some stuff that is said by commentators who are trying too hard.

"Left handed high crotch" (when the guy is already a left leg lead)

"adjustments" (they like to talk about them and they never seem to point them out)

"He makes up moves" (as if the commentator knew every move)

Those are incredibly nitpicky

Another thing, possibly nit picky...

Some commentators never shut up and all they are doing is saying what happened. It isn't radio, if all you are doing is listing the moves as they happen I'd rather just hear the crowd. If I can see what's happening I'd like some humor or insight.
