Obviously

Has replaced 'You Know" in the lexicon of the media.. Make a statement and then add OBVIOUSLY to give credence to what has been given as fact is the new way of adding weight to what has just been said... If I dont agree then obviously I didn't believe what has been stated as true "you know"

Average hockey player intermission interview:

Naoko: "Brad, take us through that goal in the second period."

Marchand: "Well, obviously, you know, Bergy made a great play in our end there, you know, and Segs, you know, he obviously just took it up ice and, you know, did a good job backing up the D, and obviously, that made some room for me, you know, and he just found me. You know, obviously great play from my linemates, and you know, I was just obviously lucky to get the goal."

Painful.

Bring back Tappen.

Dale and the boys are painful to watch, so boring and narrow minded, we need Tappen and her flare back in the studio.

So true. And it's been like that for years...many years now. If you see an interview with an NHL player and you don't hear the word 'obviously' at least a couple of times, the player must have a significantly expanded vocabulary beyond the norm for a typical NHLer these days.

Seriously though, you are right. It really is painful to watch / hear.

I don't get it, are they hockey players or public speakers? Apparently I have been barking up the wrong tree all these years, and that Stanley Cup the Bruins won was just a platform to get more interviews.

This one gets me as well:

"No, I agree."

Don't they mean "Yes, I agree?"

Or a variation:

"Seguin has improved in his sophmore year."

"No, he really has!"

Hear it every day from people who speak on the radio for a living.

Maybe Orwell was right.... No means yes?

Still better than "Not for nothin'", or "I could care less".

Asked a question...respond with:

"Yeah, no, I mean..."

I hear that all the time - "yeah" then "no" then the answer. Which is it??

Haha, I hear it all the time and I suppose I have to admit I say it all the time out of habit, too.

It comes from if there's an argument (or just a discussion) and one person makes a statement that he thinks the other person will disagree with, then that person can respond with something along the lines of "No, I actually agree with you". It's kind of evolved from

"Brad Marchand's a great player; you're really underrating him"

"No, I agree with you"

to

"Brad Marchand's a great player"

"No, I agree"


It doesn't really make sense, but the way we've arrived at that being an acceptable response does make sense.

What's wrong with "Not for nothin"? Yeah, it's a double negative, but it sounds better than "For somethin". "I could care less" seems to bother everyone. I think it makes some sense though. More as in "I wish I cared even less". But "I couldn't care less" does make more sense.

Just start playing the "intermission drinking game"...

The rules are simple: take a drink every time someone says 'Obviously".
