    Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators so far during the 2012 Summer Olympics that they would like to take back:

    1. Weightlifting commentator: This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing.

    2. Dressage commentator: This is really a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience since I once mounted her mother.

    3. Gymnast: I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father.

    4. Boxing Analyst: Sure there have been injuries and even some deaths in boxing, but none of them really that serious.

    5. Softball announcer: If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again.

    6. Basketball analyst: He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces.

    7. At the rowing medal ceremony: Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew.

    8. Soccer commentator: Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've got eleven Dicks on the field.

    9. Tennis commentator: One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them... Oh my God, what have I just said?

Did the title of this thread restrict responses to : London 2012 Olympics? or was it simply OLYMPIC quotes? which could imply quotes from any Olympics. Then again this eh no big deal here nah is simply jokes.
