This week’s Straight Outta Stockton nominees present a deep field of screwups, misspeaks, bloopers, and headscratchers. In other words, there’s plenty of our favorite announcers represented in this week’s list!
For the Straight Outta Stockton vote, each week we’ll nominate 15-20 quotes for you to pick the best 10. The winning quote of the week will earn that person 10 points all the way down to 1 point for 10th. Remember, you can vote for your favorite five quotes. Here are your Week 10 nominees…
