Over the last year, dozens of people in suits talked to you for hours and hours. Here is a list, complete with audio and video, of the 25 greatest, worst, or otherwise notable sportscasting moments of 2011.

Let's begin with a question: how many sporting events did you watch or listen to in 2011? Three per week, maybe? That's roughly nine hours of sports ... minus commercials and intermissions, that's maybe seven hours.

And that works out to 468 hours per year of sportscasters saying things at you. Nineteen and a half sleepless days and nights, if you took it all in at once. A gaggle of humans can't speak extemporaneously for that long without saying some hilarious, awful, loud, beautiful, poignant, and/or stupid things.

This is a list, complete with audio/video, of the 25 greatest such moments of 2011. Be warned: this is a subjective list. There are lesser-known moments I've included, and there are well-known moments I've left out. For example, this moment did not make the cut:

I thought there were 25 moments that, for one reason or another, were more notable than that one. I am probably wrong. Hope you enjoy!
