I swear if I hear him say "he's gotta go for it" one more time, I'm done watching the races for the year, at least not with the sound on. How come SX always ends up on the short end of the stick when it comes to announcers?

Make a drinking game out of Ricky-isms, it makes them go down easier. (Sundays are a little rough, though).

Honestly, Ricky bugged me when he first started out, but I find him, and his frequent malapropisms, strangely endearing now.

"Looks like hes not even trying"

Haha love RC in the booth tho. Id rather have him in the booth with mistakes rather than doing something else and never hearing from him like some other retired racers

So have you heard that long legs make you faster through the whoops? Sounds like he has a fucking complex about it when he brings it up every race..

RC has been doing so good..he has improved himself 100% but no matter who is in there...there's gonna be haters. Keep it up RC..and DB125 is great as well. It's a very hard job...would be interested to hear any of the haters try to commentate a LIVE race. Again, not an easy job but "you" should probably "Go For It"

Well he’s going to say it again, so just be done with it now.

I’m really enjoying all these fresh, new topics.

"A Liiiiiitle Bit"

"Main EEEEvent"

"Momentum"

"Oh, Oh, Oh"

"Long Legs"

"Inside/Outside"

"Hit His Marks"

"Riding Well"

Someone clearly bet him he couldn't work "go for it" into the broadcast at least 100 times, and the GOAT greased it. Legend.

To be fair, just about every podcast interview I hear, or any Sports talk show on TV, 100% is used 100% of the time. For ANYTHING anyone says.

I think the show as a package is pretty good! We can always make some Lemons!

I don't think a lot of people realize there are other people watching the races other than on vital superstars. So when he repeats himself sometimes, other viewers may not have ever heard that. I know that's hard to comprehend

We are lucky to have the GOAT of our sport in the booth. IMO the Rickyisms are hilarious and will never get old, it will be a sad day when Ricky steps down and someone else takes his spot. My perfect duo would be Ricky and Fro but I don't mind Diffey either, I think he's solid.

Also I'm pretty sure last night there was a prop bet over/under on the word 'residency', I think they said that word AT LEAST 50+ times grin

He brought the ol’ “he’s in a must situation” out yesterday, I thought oh boy, there’s gonna be a viral thread for RC tonight.

He’s fine, his knowledge far outweighs his little vocal mishaps.

my favorite is when he is watching and he lets out the “ooooooohhh oh ooooohhhh” like Mav said above!

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!

Don't forget the "Watch, he's going to go for the pass right here... Oh he didn't go for it".

For the record, I don't have a problem with RC in the booth. He's a lot better than he was a couple of years ago, but there's still room for improvement.

At least 3x each broadcast. "Oooh ooooh oh!"

Is GL doing the Nationals with Weege this summer?

I love RC. But someone needs to tell him to nix the long legs whoops comments. Every single supercross over and over.
