Sports Irony


This doesn’t even qualify as Alanis Morrisette irony:

I was watching a little bit of the College World Series game between Tennessee and Georgia Tech. The leadoff hitter for Tennessee is known for his speed. The announcer, whose name I did not catch, says this and then goes on to say, “Ironically, in his first college plate appearance, he walked and then stole second base.”

Do we need to have a required class in sports journalism programs on the proper use of irony?
