Here is a perfect example:
Nastia Liukin just finished a great uneven bars.
2 other commentators: "Brilliant", "You will not see a higher score this Olympics"
Tim Dagget: "But it is not enough"
Hey Tim, if I wanted to hear about the details of gymnastics, and how one should have .02 points deducted from their score because they did not point their pinky in the right place, then I would watch gymnastics more than just once every four years.
I would hate to be this guys son. Imagine coming home from school in first grade:
Son: "Dad, Dad, I just got A in my History test, the teacher has never given an A before."
Tim "I would have never won a gold in the team event had the Russians not boycotted the 84 games" Dagget: WHAT, YOU MISSED A QUESTION?!? HOW COULD YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN WHO WAS THE LAST CREDITABLE FEDERALIST CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT IN 1816 (answer is Rufus King)???
Here are a couple of Dagget moments from the olympics:
- The Romanian women are struggling and their coach is trying to comfort them. Tim Dagget says: "The old coach would never hug the girls after such a horrible performance."
- When a guy was doing a move that he was almost paralized doing a couple weeks before, Tim Dagget says: "He is not going to do it, He is not going to do it. (He does the move) I can't believe he did it, he has not been able to do that move for a long time. He has either messed up or chickened out the last couple times."
It makes me wish John Tesh was still doing the olympics.
