I watched the Seahawks victory today (Rob was there), and was silently laughing at the sheer number of Seattle cliches that FOX yanked out.
It was raining, which is indeed a Seattle cliche, but not one of FOX's making. But they not only cut to shots of the fish-tossers at Pike Place Market, played grunge music on cutaways (Courtney Love? Please...), and when the game was finally won, one of the announcers cried "Caramel frappuccinos for everybody!"
I suspect that's a class all sports announcers must take, Cliches Relating To the City You're In 101. And it's why on the Vikings games, no one can resist attempting a Fargo accent and mentioning Garrison Keillor. Heh.
