Another Tarheel Announcer Deserving Criticism

We’ve already ripped on Woody Durham last week…so why not another one?

A lot of people don’t seem to know that irritating Jim Lampley (Bio) is a ‘one of them’. Evidently he is cut from King Rice mold as he has been arrested for domestic violence charges.

Deadspin is all over this one.

HBO boxing sportscaster Jim Lampley was arrested in San Diego County on charges on “suspicion of domestic violence and other counts” late yesterday afternoon. According to gossip juggernaut, Lampley was arrested at his girlfriend’s home and had been under investigation because of previous complaints…Lampley has apparently been married three times….(Lampley) was also in violation of a restraining order when the incident occurred yesterday.

Deadspin followed up last weeks lampooning of Lampley with the revelation of how hot this woman really is.

The woman who accused Jim Lampley of slapping her around has been identified, and it’s… well, it’s a nice pull on the part of Jim Lampley, that’s what it is. Her name is Candice Sanders, and she was Miss California USA 2003. What she was doing with Jim Lampley, I couldn’t tell you. She probably has her own questions about that at the moment.

She alleges that Lamps was both drunk and high at the time of the assault, and that he bounced her off of two walls and against a door. She says she then instructed Lampley’s son, a 14-year-old, to call the police, and Lampley got to the phone before the kid and wouldn’t let him call.

Sounds like a real prince. I think there’s just too much violence on television, and it’s starting to have a terrible effect on our children. And on our Lampleys.

    bp – I’d rather him be a TarHeel – it confirms all of my worst suspicions about him.

    Maybe Lampley can get a job as fire chief in Orange County

    Funny thing is Jim Lampley was the first announcer I ever heard goof up and call the ‘eels the Tar Holes. I saw it a long time ago on TV during a State-EweNC game. He corrected himself for the slip but it stuck with me and my friends to this day. So I give him naming rights for doing it on the air.

    The guys obviously got a problem hitting women. Not cool. The State haters always mention Marcus Melvin or any other former players who have had domesticc problems so to me Lampley’s fair game.

    I can’t wait for Larry Merchant to break out the article or a monitor running the story and critique him the next time they get together

    I disagree, this site is pretty chock full of Wolfpack sports info…you just read one that wasn’t.

    I have to admit the King Rice reference was pretty funny, but I could give two shits about Jim Lampley.

    I work for a company out in SoCal and I’ve read and saw some media shorts about Bree. She’s pretty strong and a great figurehead for disability rights.

    Maybe this thread wasn’t the most carefully thought out, as people tend to get pissed when you pick on the disabled.

    But seriously Beowolf, getting picky about the Tarhole’s phrase…..they are what they are! If you can’t pick on your rival who can you?

    “Court records show that Sanders said that Lampley attacked her in her Encinitas apartment on New Year’s Eve.

    Sanders also claimed that Lampley had been drinking and smoking marijuana before attacking her.”

    Oh come on Jim. Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve couldn’t have been that bad.

    this is off topic, but i just saw an article on,

    stating the revenues, and profits, of ohio state’s football program.

    anybody know what the numbers are on NCSU and ranking?

    Lampley’s the personification of one of those smarmy game show host/announcer guys that Phil Hartman used to portray on SNL. Every time I see him I think of that type of charicature that Hartman did so well.

    I think what really happened is that they had called in a pizza earlier, the girl and Lampley’s 14 year old son were watching an episode of “Hannah Montana,” Lampley was busy with the bong and paranoid because he couldn’t follow the story line, then the girl unfortunately reached the last piece of pizza without asking anyone…that’s when all hell broke loose!

    It’s just another heart warming family tale, about a single dad, and two young kids, that didn’t turn out so well! I think there was something similar on the Walton’s one time.
