Behind the scenes

In order to understand what a sports announcer is saying, it is important to know what goes on behind the scenes. A lot of preparation goes into each broadcast, and the announcers have to be very knowledgeable about the teams and players. They also have to be able to keep track of the game and describe the action in a way that is interesting and easy for the viewers to follow.

Funniest moments

Sports announcers are often the target of pranks by fans. Some of the more memorable moments include:

-In 2005, a fan ran onto the field during a game between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. The fan, who was wearing a Yankees jersey, was quickly apprehended by security. However, the incident caused a delay in the game, much to the amusement of the announcers.
-In 2006, a fan threw a rat onto the ice during a game between the Ottawa Senators and the Buffalo Sabres. The rat landed near one of the players, causing him to jump in disgust. The announcers found the incident hilarious and joked about it for several minutes.
-In 2007, a group of fans in Philadelphia threw snowballs at Santa Claus during an outdoor game between the Flyers and the New Jersey Devils. Santa was hit by several snowballs and had to be escorted off the ice by security. The announcers were not amused by the incident and criticized the fans for their actions.
