A favorite Sports Announcer malaprop:

One year the Mets had a shot at the pennant, but in a crucial August game they seemed to throw it all away. How badly did they play? Here's what I heard a radio announcer say about that game. If you want to get into the spirit of things, he said it slowly and ponderously:

The way the Mets played today: there are No Words To Describe It.
They were awful.
They were terrible!
They were atrocious.
They were abominable.
They were horrible.
They were ...

("No Words", huh? Are you quite sure?)
