I didn't see it either. So when I read something like that in transcript, I always try to imagine different contexts. If Collinsworth was stating it in a Tom Brokaw, factual fashion, than yeah, that is incredibly lame.

However, I can also imagine it being said in a Fox sports, lets have our announcers seem like regular guys who I'd like to have a beer with fashion where they have the announcers try to appear to have buddy rapport by goading one another.

So my question to those who saw it, which of those two scenarios is closer to matching the demeanor of Collinsworth's statement?
