Default Chuck Swirsky Catch Phrases

From Wikipedia... Pretty interesting

Quote:
“Are you kidding me?"
“Onions, onions, and more onions! Buy a bushel!" (The catch phrase "Onions" is borrowed from legendary college basketball broadcaster Bill Raftery. The bushel reference usually directed towards Leo Rautins)
"Onions Baby, Onions!!!"
“Get out the salami and cheese, mama! This ball game is 'over'!
“Sick, wicked, and nasty!”
“Get out the umbrellas; it's raining treys!” (when the Raptors make several three-pointers).
“Nothin' but nylon!” (when a Raptors player hits a shot ).
“Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, ya gotta love it!”
“Ka-Bosh!” (exclaimed when All-Star Chris Bosh dunks the ball)
"Oh my Bosh!" (exclaimed when All-Star Chris Bosh makes a play)
"Kaboom!"
"You can ring it up from downtown <insert city name>, this one goes out to <insert persons name>" (When the first Raptors' three-pointer is scored.)
“Oh baby, what a play!”
" Raptors win! Raptors win! Raptors win!"
“Oh no!” (exclaimed when an opposing player makes a scoring play in the clutch)
“My goodness, Leo.”
“Always a pleasure talking Raptors' ball”
"Rimming..rimming..no."
"(Raptors player) has got the mojo goin'!"
“ He just gave (Name of player) an NBA facial!"
"A shameless plug!" (Every time Swirsky mentions MLSE in his daily blog)
"(Name of player) is showing us a little somethin' somethin'!"
"(Name of player) shakes and bakes" (When a player crosses over on another)
"T-Mac to the rack!!!"
"Vincent Lamar Carter!"
"(Name of player) has the feel and the flow here at the ACC" (When someone is playing well)
"That's an MP3 download!" (When Morris Peterson makes a 3-pointer)
" A Three ball from Parkerville!" and "A 3 from 18 parkerville street" (when Anthony Parker scores a 3-pointer)
"(Name of a player that got blocked) just ate some Spalding!!!"
"Bam!" (referring to a big-time shot)
"(Raptors player) filling it up."
"To the rack and a dunk!" (exclaimed when a player drives in and dunks it hard)

Salami and Cheese biotch


What your fave?

Used to be Salami and Cheese until Leo ruined it by talking about 100 times a game and pressuring Chuck to say it.

Haven't listened to chuck in quite some time, but what happened to:
"Book it!"
"Ring it up!"
and
"I don't believe it!"

and the "Ball game over" before he says "raptors win, raptors win, raptors win"

Agree.

I am starting to get annoyed with Chuck. When he is commentating will Leo he gets way off topic and they just talk about pointless stuff. When he is with Jack he is fine though. Jack seems to keep him in line.

Some of his quotes are really stupid. ( Parkerville )

Parkerville is Anthony Parkers idea. He asked Chuck to use that one for him.

Considering the simple fact that ive been listening to the man call our games for years now, Chucks ecentric style though at times can be a bit much & overwhelmingly tiresome to the ear I just cant help but to hold an emotional attatchment to his voice... Hes a great promoter of the Toronto franchise and you can clearly see how much passion he holds for the game and our city. Kinda reminds of the way Jim Ross is towards wrestling & the WWE...
But i must admit, whenever i get the chance to listen to the oppositions brodcast i jump all over the oppertunity. Ive always enjoyed hearing an alternative viewpoint over our ballclub...

I remember back during Chuck's fan590 days. There were at one time several "radio only" games, and Chuck kept me interested all game long, despite the fact that I wasn't able to watch it. I mean, Paul and Eric are ok, but I think it's great to have a guy who is as passionate and excited about the game as Chuck.

although, i live in the states now so I mostly only see American broadcasts.

Amen to that.

Does Parkerville have some kind of significance?

They left out "He just took him to school!"

My favs: "oh baby what play!" and "onions baby, onions!"

Chuck is definately one of the best overall...and the best team based play by play man.

Also, the "bleeding profusely" comments.

I forget the exact story on this, it can be found somewhere I'm sure.. I'm just too lazy at the moment.
