Yeah, like we’re gonna forget what they JUST said about THAT specific play.

Plus, when a commentator acknowledges they were wrong, it makes me like them 10x more! Especially if they do it in a self-deprecating way. I feel like that’s more common on local baseball and basketball broadcasts. National commentators seem to have too much of an ego to be self-deprecating unless they have that kind of rapport with the other commentator.
