Bob Lamey has been the Colts radio play-by-play announcer for a long, long, long time now. Lamey, who is often referred to as "The Voice of the Colts" started calling games for the team when they moved to Indianapolis back in 1984, and with the exception of a brief hiatus in the early 1990s, he’s been calling Colts games ever since. So you would think he would know what he can and, more importantly, what he can’t say on the radio during Colts games.
Lamey is known for getting lost in the moment at times during games, though, and that’s exactly what happened to him on Sunday at the tail end of a game against the Chargers. With Indianapolis leading San Diego 26-22 with a little more than a minute left in the fourth quarter, Chargers tight end Hunter Henry caught a pass, started running up the field, and fumbled it. The fumble was then recovered by Colts safety Mike Adams, who jumped on top of the ball to seal the game for the Colts. And Lamey responded to the exciting play by forgetting that he was live on the air for a second and dropping an F-bomb:
"The Colts win it, 26-22," Lamey said. "The game is finally f*cking over."
It didn’t go undetected as more than a few people tweeted about Lamey’s F-bomb:
In the past, Lamey has come dangerously close to cursing on the air. He once said the Colts "freaking fumbled" during the 2007 AFC Championship Game:
But he obviously went over the line on Sunday afternoon, and we’re sure he’s going to hear from the FCC after doing it.
