i’ve watched the live stream the past two weeks, catching events live...its either no announcers or British announcers....

these Olympics have sort of fizzled....everything was concentrated the first eleven days and the schedule has been sparse since Friday...six medal events in track last night is a downer...

uck Laughlin: Excuse me if this off the subject a little bit, but just take a guess at how much I can bench press. Come on, what do you think? Take a guess. 315 pounds, at the top of my game, maxing out at 500!

Buck Laughlin: Tell me, do you know the difference between a rectal thermometer and a tongue depressor?
Nurse: Uh, no.
Buck Laughlin: Remind me never to come to you for a physical!

Buck Laughlin: [as the hound judge examines a Borzoi] Now that looks like a fast dog. Is that faster than a greyhound?
Trevor Beckwith: Uhh... I can’t really say...
Buck Laughlin: If you put them in a race, who would come in first? You know if you had a little jockey on them, going like this
[imitates jockeys hitting the side of the horse]

Buck Laughlin: Doctor, question that’s always bothered me and a lot of people: Mayflower, combined with Philadelphia - a no-brainer, right? Cause this is where the Mayflower landed. Not so. It turns out Columbus actually set foot somewhere down in the West Indies. Little known fact.

Buck Laughlin: And to think that in some countries these dogs are eaten.

Buck Laughlin: I went to one of those obedience places once... it was all going well until they spilled hot candle wax on my private parts.

Buck Laughlin: I’d hate to go on a date with Judge Edie Franklin and have her judge me, that’d be no fun.

Buck Laughlin: I don’t think I could ever get used to being poked and prodded like that. I told my proctologist one time, “Why don’t you take me out to dinner and a movie sometime?”
Trevor Beckwith: Yes, I remember you said that last year.

Buck went on to a successful career with ABCNBCCBSCNNFOX.
