You should watch Nascar. They quote country singers.

Or country singers quote Nascar. It's hard to tell.

That's nothing. In high school, the announcer once played the entirety of Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music over the intercom after a particularly impressive touchdown.

(This is hilarious.)

Funny, I was just watching Al Jazeera and the announcer segued from a story about Shakespeare to sport by delivering the following quote (with only slightly less glee than the lacrosse announcer): "As flies to wanton boys, are we to the gods, — They kill us for their sport."

Lesson learned: Everyone has their nerddom.

That was really funny. Glad I watched it before reading the comments.

Less funny when you know he had been planning that for a while, and that he probably put the video up on youtube himself.

Great, just what we need. Another generation of Boys' Latin kids thinking that they're badass.

I notice people are ignoring the other video where he quotes Enya.

You know who else quoted Biggie?

Stilted. Lame. Should have quit after three lines instead of trying to sing the rest of the song.

Yes, we all love "Mr. Plow"! Oh, you've got the song memorized, do you? SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE!

this song was also quoted at length by Keanu Reeves in Hardball. That's how edgy it is.

A Biggy quote to mark a lacrosse goal, oof.

Does this mean that song just got gentrified?

Unless this is a canard, the prime purchasers of hip-hop CDs after the 1980s are and have been middle-class, suburban teenage boys.

Some announcers quote rappers and others become rappers.

On the flipside, Chuck D of Public Enemy has gone on record as saying Marv Albert was the main influence for his rap voice.

Don't break your backs trying to dislike this. It's not worth it. Here's a tip: not everyone is trying to be "edgy."
posted by basicchannel at 9:06 PM on June 26, 2011


Also, I think he was trying to be "silly" not "edgy."

I find it hard to believe that this guy ever read Word Up magazine.

Not blaming the announcer, who's clearly trying to be silly. I just don't find this post very interesting.

It is kind of weird how it ended up as the sport of prep school WASPs despite being practically the only well known team sport that wasn't invented by Europeans or descended from one that was.
