    OH MY GOD!!!! THIS HAS GOT TO BE A JOKE!!!

    As I'm sitting here watching Soccernet's live commentary box on the Argentina Brazil Confederations Cup Final this is what the cvommentator types.....

    This could mean massive reprecutions if people file indecensy complaints against them...

    Robihno streaking forward finds Ronaldinno who hits it to Renato and his cross cum shot is nearly prodded home by the out-stretched boot of Adriano. Excellent play.

    A fantastic little chipped ball from Ronaldihno in to the box is not done justice by Maicon's finish in to the side-netting.

    Argentina continue to press this late on in the game but can't find a way through. When they do, Dida is in the way.

    Cicinho off for Maicon.

    Kaka off and Renato on.

    ESPN IS a blunder when it comes to the beautiful game.

    Fortunately, it's soccer, so very few people probably caught it.

    'cum' in this sense would be the Latin phrase 'cum'.

    What's wrong with "cross-cum-shot"?

    Tsk, a little Latin and you all get worked up! You'll hear it a lot in English commentary. Now you can s************ at that, just like you do when we smoke a "******"... ;)

    You've got to be a complete dumbass, or a perv who spends entire days on alt.facials newsgroups not to realize what the guy meant by writing "cross cum shot" on the live tracker. Even if someone did report it to the FCC they'd just laugh if off, as contrary to the popular belief many of those that work there have graduated colleges "cum" laude. And to think that I opened this thread hoping to find some really juicy story! What a let down.

    In his defense, I didn't realize what was meant by it until it was pointed out, and then it seemed obvious. I thought it was just a typo at first.

    I must have missed that attempted Bukkake shot. :rolleyes:

    How that guy could work the large ball with both feet and the smaller ones at the same time is just amazing. Robinho is truely world class!

    I can't wait for the day when our US players will be so technically proficient and tactically aware that they can wack off and shoot during a cup final.
    USA supporters, this is truely the goal of US Soccer...

    Is this what BS ESPN bashing has come to? Have they improved so much that there's nothing real to comment on?

    this was not even on television. this was in a text based match tracker on ESPN SoccerNet. while i could see how it could get a grin or two, it's hardly a MASSIVE LIVE BLUNDER.

    note:

    cross cum shot means it started out as a cross but became a shot along the way. cum is pronounced "koom"

    Well, at least the cum shot didn't hit Kaka.

    ESPN had a thing at the end of their College World Series coverage, Mike Patrick set it up like they were going to do one of those musical tribute "One Shining Moment" ripoffs ... but then all that came up was a black screen with white letters that read:

    "Ryan don't screw this up :13."

    Then they went really quick to SportsCenter.

    The Soccernet commentaries are always good for a laugh. In a recent England match, the guy had Beckham taking a 40-yard sh!t.

    On one hand, it's not all that unusual or strange a turn of phrase.

    On another, more twelve-year-old level... tee hee, cum shot.

    To wit... some choice quotes from the great Dendu's stint on Monday Night Football:

    "Big deal, so he scored. The last time I saw someone dance like that I had to pay her $20 and have my pants dry cleaned the next day."

    "Ray Lewis knifed through those offensive linemen like a sucker-punch switchblade slicing between the ribs of some inebriated trash-talking punk outside a sports bar."

    "The Cowboy's defense has more holes in it than Ronny Milsapp and Jose Feliciano after a game of lawn darts."

    "The punt returner got smacked like Nancy Kerrigan's knee on souvenir pipe night."

    "That secondary provides worse coverage than a Guatemalan HMO."

    "Their offense is shakier than Katherine Hepburn after an all-night espresso bender at Starbucks."

    "Everybody's worried about me using profanity - the only f-word I might say a lot this year is 'Faulk.'"

    "I'll tell you how many hits (Steve) Beuerlein has taken this year: See how black and blue he is, Al? He doesn't even have a jersey on. That's just him."

    "I haven't seen murkier bloodlines than this since the house of Plantagenet."


    Almost every time he'd pull one of these, it was met with awkward silence by the rest of the broadcast booth, which was generally funnier than his joke itself.
