* Rowling later did a write-up of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup with Ginny Weasley acting as the commentator and ''Daily Prophet'' and perennial Dumbledore's Army thorn-in-the-side Rita Skeeter acting as a gossip commentator because of the presence of members of Dumbledore's Army in the audience. This in itself doesn't put her in cuckoolander territory, as it's actually her job to gossip on their activities. Where this comes in is when she starts trying to fit ''everything'' they're doing into her gossip narrative, to the point where she tries to make something sinister out of their cheering for exciting moments of the match, so engrossed in this idea that she doesn't realize that said exciting moments are happening. Finally, at the end of the match, Ginny has enough of it and gives her a "jinx to the solar plexus."

* Don Chery of ''Series/HockeyNightInCanada'' may be a good mid-game commenter, but it's sometimes hard to tell what he's saying over his extremely loud and varied wardrobe

* As alluded to in the Radio section, ''[[UsefulNotes/{{Cricket}} Test Match Special]]'' on BBC Radio 4 has a reputation for its commentators going off on rambling tangents about something only incidentally related to the match, albeit usually while the players are breaking for lunch or a SpotOfTea or the match is halted by inclement weather. Most cricket fans wouldn't have it any other way.

'''Spike:''' Looks like Rainbow's doing her best to catch up! \\
'''Pinkie Pie:''' I'm not sure how ketchup is going to help her in this contest. Now in a hot dog eating contest, it can make them doggies nice and slippery, but personally I prefer mustard. How about you, Spike? \\
'''Spike:''' Uh...I like pickles?

* Spanish {{WWE}} announcer Héctor del Mar definitely qualifies. His callings tend to fall in all kinds of absurd puns, improvised senseless proverbs and downright bizarre comments about the matches and the wrestling in general, and the most awesome thing is that he is ''not'' the color commentator (who technically is Fernando Costilla, DeadpanSnarker of ''[[Series/TakeshisCastle Humor Amarillo]]'' fame). Despite his little attachment to wrestling announcing itself, Del Mar is popular in Spain to the point that many Spaniards watch WWE more due to him than the actual product.

* {{MTV}} Brazil had a [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball soccer]] tournament between musicians, ''Rockgol''. Given the high level of play (one time a player managed to make an offside reposition wrong!), the commentators, usually comedians, would [[TheNicknamer put nicknames on the players and referees]] and talk about anything possible.

* [[RunningGag Pretty much]] every Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} commentator [[StraightMan besides]] Dave Prazak, including Allison Danger but especially Portia Perez and Kellie Skater, for whom delusion is already a given.



* Brad Maddox on his few commentary appearances. What he says almost always contradicts what's actually going on in the ring.
** Once during the middle of a match he asked Wrestling/MichaelCole if he had "direct deposit on his check?"

* After Matt Taven got injured near the end of 2015, he spent 2016 behind the ROH table, and was fine so long as he was reminded of his own "greatness" or saw something he personally experienced. Any deviation from these things led to diatribes about hair, his school day shenanigans, virtual pets, his acting aspirations and such.
