    Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators during the 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. Paul Hamm, 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?"

    I was once told that Johnny Carson had Arnold Palmers wife on.

    JC "Is there any ritual you have before Arnie plays in a Tournament? To give him luck I mean."

    APW "Well I kiss his balls."

    JC "I'll bet that makes his putter stand up!"

    The "kissing the balls" routine is from Johnny Carson and Arnold Palmer. No I am not old enough that I saw it live, but did see a replay...

    Arnie: My wife kisses my balls before a big tournament.
    Johnny: I bet that makes your putter flutter!

    He got sued (and paid) for that which makes me wonder if anyone else is dumb enough to say it.

    It is a funny list but..............................

    Don't know how many are real, if any, but I've read that many times in the last five years. No Olympics, certainly. :nah

    BTW: Since when is golf an olympic sport? :huh
